In NME’s review of Watch Dogs: Legion, Jordan Oloman wrote: “Ubisoft’s latest open-world game takes players to the capital of the United Kingdom, in order to liberate it from the thrall of an authoritarian regime.”
Discussing the game’s plot he said: “It’s set in an alternate universe where the crypto-fascists have already got what they wanted – a great premise if you’re not actually British, at which point it becomes a bit close to the bone.”
“It follows a group of white hat hackers called DedSec, who are forced to create an enclave of resistance fighters out of London’s civilians to topple the oppressors dominating the capital.”
Watch Dogs: Legion recently received some surprising new DLC in the form of Legion of the Dead, a new co-op roguelite mode that sees members of DedSec face off against zombies in London. It came free as part of title update 4.5.
