Ubisoft has released a new promo for Watch Dogs: Legion, the third entry in the third-person hacker-shooter series.
The video is a new one explaining the “Play as Anyone” mechanic. If the character you’re playing as in the game dies, it is permanent. But with this mechanic, you can choose anyone else in the world to continue playing as.
You can check out this new Watch Dogs: Legion video below, along with much more info on the game and a couple of previously released bonus videos for anyone who hasn’t seen them.
ABOUT WATCH DOGS: LEGION:
It’s time to take back London, and virtually anyone you see in this iconic city can be recruited to your resistance. The people are being oppressed by corrupt opportunists and it’s up to you to build a resistance to give the city back to the people. With an entire population of potential recruits and the city’s technology at your fingertips, you’ll need to hack, infiltrate, and fight your way to a liberated London. Welcome to the Resistance.
PLAY AS ANYONE
Recruit anyone from the entire population of London into your resistance: from an MI6 agent to a tough bareknuckle fighter, a brilliant hacker or an illegal street-racer, a rising football star or an inconspicuous old lady… Anyone you see can join your team and has a unique backstory, personality, and skillset.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR RECRUITS
Unlock unique perks to personalize each member of your Legion according to your playstyle. Level-up each character within classes such as Hacker, Infiltrator, and Assault. Customize them further with unique outfits and iconic masks.
HACKING IS YOUR WEAPON
Weaponize London’s tech infrastructure. Hijack armed combat drones, deploy stealthy spider-bots, covertly take down enemies using an Augmented Reality Cloak, and much more.
TOTAL FREEDOM, REAL CONSEQUENCES
Play the game the way you want. A brand-new melee system and a wide range of weapons and abilities means that the way you approach combat has real consequences. If you use non-lethal force, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest you. If you shoot to kill, you risk having your characters permanently killed.
OPEN WORLD LONDON
Explore a massive urban open world and visit London’s many famous landmarks – including Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Camden, Piccadilly Circus, or the London Eye – and engage in side activities like bareknuckle boxing, freestyle football, illegal courier contracts or street art.
TEAM UP WITH FRIENDS
Bring your team online and join forces with up to three friends as you freely explore the world together or take on entirely new co-op missions and challenging end-game content. Enjoy free regular updates adding new online modes, rewards, and themed events.

When everyone is playable, it’s important to recruit wisely.
Each character in the city of London has their own unique abilities and skills that can help you bring the power back into the hands of the people. Recruit your own unique team with their own personalities, backstories, and perks. Play as anyone and bring your characters to life with four-player co-op missions, events, and end-game challenges.
Class is in session! Today we’ll be going over the never-before-seen gameplay innovation that allows you to recruit and play as anyone you see in Watch Dogs: Legion. London is facing its downfall and it’s your job to build the Resistance and take it back! Take notes, there will be a pop quiz!
In Watch Dogs: Legion, you can recruit and play as any character in the open world of near-future London. Hear firsthand from the development team at Ubisoft Toronto how “Play As Anyone” works, who’s running the show in dystopian London, and how building your DedSec team out of hacker grannies is totally possible.
