Watch Dogs Legion Preorder Guide: Next-Gen Upgrades, Release Date, And Pricing

The hacker-centric franchise is back with Watch Dogs Legion.

8 Comments

Watch Dogs Legion is shifting the focus of the series away from a single ambitious hacker looking to change the world to a large group of individuals hoping to push back against oppression. Legion was originally set to release March 6, but Ubisoft delayed the game. During this year's Ubisoft Forward stream, Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs Legion will release on October 29 on PS4, Xbox One, PC (via Uplay and the Epic Games Store), and Stadia. Ubisoft also confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion will also be available on Xbox Series X and S when those consoles launch November 10, as well as the PS5 when it launches November 12.

Those who buy Watch Dogs Legion will receive a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X, regardless of whether you buy a physical or digital copy. For physical edition owners, you will have to insert the disc into the next-gen console when playing. Digital edition owners can download the game on their new console this holiday, with Series X supporting Smart Delivery.

While the first two games took place in Chicago and San Francisco, respectively, Watch Dogs Legion moves the setting to a near-future, dystopian London. Interestingly, Legion will let players "recruit" and take control of any NPC in the game, and your character choice will actually affect how the game plays out. Check out our guide to everything we know about Watch Dogs Legion, including how its NPC system works, character classes, combat, and more. Also, take a peek at the latest trailer shown during Ubisoft Forward.
