Good things come to those who wait. The next Watch Dogs game is almost here.

The third title in the series, Legion will drop players into a dystopian version of near-future London. And, like previous games in the series, the massive open world promises a chaotic good time.

In fact, one of the biggest new features in Watch Dogs: Legion is something designed specifically for the open-world setting. In Legion, you’ll have the ability to “become” almost any NPC you encounter. Check the Reveal Trailer, the World Premier Trailer, and of course the store page listed below for more information.
