It appears one of Assassin’s Creed publisher Ubisoft‘s big E3 2019 surprises has leaked ahead of the show. Amazon UK posted a product page for Watch Dogs Legion, which is apparently set in London. The listing was originally spotted by and reported on by The Nerd Mag. The game’s supposed product description states that the game will riff on current events. “Watch Dogs Legion is ready in a near-future, dystopian version of London. it is a post-Brexit world within which society, politics, and technology have modified and altered London’s fortunes,” it says.
However, there are lots of details within the product description. now around, it appears that you simply will play as any NPC in London. “Play as anyone. each individual you meet within the open world, contains a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated by gameplay system.”
The product description then gets a little odd and potentially suspect. It states, “London makes total sense for WD,” which is a kind of phrasing we wouldn’t expect from a major publisher. Additionally, the product description spells the world surveillance as “surveillance.”
Something might be off with the product description, but the London setting had been rumored for many months already, while Kotaku’s Jason Schreier reported today that Watch Dogs Legion is indeed the title of the game and London is its setting.
The description conjointly notes that Watch Dogs Legion is ready during a “near-future, dystopian” London. “It’s a post-Brexit world during which society, politics, and technology have modified and altered London’s fortunes. London is one amongst the foremost iconic cities within the world and has had a huge influence on all of the culturefor centuries… London makes total sense for WD because the town has one amongst the best surveillance levels within the world creating this the right playground.”
According to Schreier, the listing is so real. The name was detected from varied sources who were related to Ubisoft. He also confirms that the flexibility to play as an NPC when recruiting is true which may confirm the various things seen throughout the game.
Interestingly, the sheer ambition of the system has been inflicting some issues for the development team and “may have led to a minimum of one delay.” It isn’t long currently before we get a full reveal at E3 2019. Ubisoft’s presser can happen on June 10th at 1 PM PT/9 PM UK time. keep tuned for a lot of leaks – Ubisoft has already seen one with Roller Champions recently.
