Watch Dogs: Legion: About The Importance Of The Story

The game design director of the third Watch Dogs game told Spiel Times in his interview why the story is important.

„You know, first off – I know ‘play as anyone’ is kind of a crazy technological innovation with the simulation we’ve done, but the story is still a huge part of the game it’s a huge part of the franchise and this game is no different. We’ve got five different storylines in the game, so it’s five main- you could call them quest lines if you want. And each one of them is tied to one of our thematic pillars. So, for example, we’re gonna be looking at today a storyline that’s about the surveillance state. It’s basically about the spies of the nation turning their technology inward and spying on the citizens of England and London. There’s one that’s about the surveillance state. There’s one that’s themed around the private military contractors who’ve supplanted the police in the city, and they’ve taken over,” Kent Hudson, the game design director of Watch Dogs, said.

Hudson added that the game’s fictional agency aside, there will be references to MI5 (counter-intelligence agency within the UK) and MI6 (foreign intelligence service). „The mix between the real intelligence agencies and its fictional agency are tied to the thematic pillars that are going into the game,” Hudson said.

Watch Dogs: Legion recently was discussed with its four different editions, and the HitRecords agreement (which we also wrote about) also was controversial. Despite the release being far (March 6 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and it’s possible that the Google Stadia will get it on Day 1, too), we might learn a bit more about the game set in a post-Brexit London. Oh, and if you want to subscribe to the uPlay+ subscription service, Ubisoft will put this game into the available games, too.
