Watch Dogs: Legion features Aiden Pearce and…Stormzy

At today’s Ubisoft Forward event, the publisher revealed more details on Watch Dogs: Legion ahead of its launch. We got a few more gameplay snippets showing some new character options and gadgets, along with details on the game’s music. It’s safe to say there’s a few surprises in here.

English rapper and songwriter Stormzy gets a full motion captured appearance, with some of his music also featuring in the soundtrack. In general, Ubisoft emphasised how important the music scene is to London, and how it has its place in Watch Dogs: Legion. Stormzy appeared on stage at one of the game’s music clubs, and he seemed impressed with how Ubisoft has recreated London in Legion. That’s not the only character reveal we got though…

Aiden Pearce from the original Watch Dogs returns as a playable character. Oh how we’ve missed that gruff, monotone voice. Ubisoft claimed that we’ve all been asking for it, but the original protagonist didn’t get the warmest reception back in 2014. He’s back though, among the literal hundreds of citizens you can take control of in Watch Dogs: Legion.

This is a developing story.
