One of the most intriguing facets of upcoming action adventure Watch Dogs: Legion is the promise that we’ll be able to play as anyone.

Set in post-Brexit London, if you see somebody – anybody – walking or standing about then you’ll be able to recruit them to your team and play as them. Want to be the fine-looking person in the pig mask above? Sure, get some pork on your fork!

It’s a huge pledge that will be groundbreaking if it’s pulled off well. The vid below highlights how it will work, as well as introducing us to some of the character types that paths may be crossed with.

Various potential teammates will also have varying skills and assets. One demonstrated here is a bloke named Viktor, who only takes half the damage after necking a pint of lager or two. Hmm, we can’t wait for the Helen Lovejoys of the world to get onto that one…

Watch Dogs: Legion is currently set for release on PS4 and Xbox One on March 6, 2020.
