Assassin's Creed is coming to Watch Dogs: Legion in a big way, with a new trailer showcasing a new playable member of the Assassin's Brotherhood who comes equipped with the order's signature hidden blade.

The trailer shows off the futuristic new assassin, Darcy, sneaking her way through London while showing some unsuspecting guards just how deadly her hidden blade can be. It also puts a spotlight on some new Assassin Brotherhood locations that could have some fascinating story connections for fans of the series.

Now Playing: Watch Dogs Legion Assassin's Creed Crossover Trailer

Darcy will be available to owners of Watch Dogs: Legion's season pass, and is playable in the main game or online for what Ubisoft is calling "the ultimate stealth-based Watch Dogs: Legion experience."

While Darcy will be exclusive to the season pass, other pieces of content coming as part of the game's August 24 update will be available to all players for free. Two new story missions are being added, along with new world missions, new player vs. player modes, and a new standalone zombies mode called Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead.

Despite Darcy's upcoming arrival, Watch Dogs: Legion producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan said last October that the appearance of an Assassin's Creed character in Watch Dogs does not mean the two game franchise's are canonically connected, but is instead "just to really have fun and build a character that is heavily inspired by Assasssin's Creed."

Watch Dogs: Legion has seen a steady stream of content updates since it release in October 2020, receiving new characters, missions, and online multiplayer. The game's latest Assassin's Creed-themed update comes hot on the heels of the new Assassin's Creed Valhalla expansion, The Siege of Paris, which put an emphasis on more classic, stealth-based Assassin's Creed gameplay. The developer of the expansion, Ubisoft Singapore, is reportedly being investigated by a local labor rights group following accusations of sexual harassment and discrimination at the studio.
