Watch Dogs: Legion – Title Update #5 Overview

Ubisoft 07 July, 2021 - 03:27am

The boring iconic hat man is now in Watch Dogs: Legion

Rock Paper Shotgun 07 July, 2021 - 03:27am

Look, I know some of you like Aiden Pearce and the original Watch_Dogs. I've seen you on Twitter talking about how it was grittier than the games that followed. You thought Aiden was dark and haunted, like a Batman who fell down a well and landed in a cave filed with baseball caps.

I happen to think you're wrong, but I'm happy for you, really. The new Watch Dogs: Legion Bloodline DLC is out now, and it adds a bearded Capman to the most recent of Ubisoft's hackfests.

Bloodline is about Pearce and the masked hacker Wrench from Watch Dogs 2 heading seperately to Legion's London in pursuit of a device that will allow whoever owns it to control an army of robots. You'll play as both characters at different points of the story. It is, generally, the mixture of sneaking, hacking and cracking heads you expect from all previous flavours of Watch Dogs.

This is the first major story DLC for the open world game since it launched last year, and Bloodline's release date has been moved around a few times. It's less interesting to me than the reintroduction of multiplayer modes about hacking other players, which are on the roadmap to be added to Legion in August.

To get a fuller picture of my views on Pearce, you could read my review of the original Watch Dogs from back in 2014. I describe him as "mild", which is a cutting burn, you'll agree. I'd also argue that as a game, it's "dark" only in the sense that women have no agency at any point during its story.

Anyway, Legion is better, and maybe that'll lift Pearce to new heights. Alice B is playing it right now and will offer some proper thoughts soon.

Graham used to be to blame for all this.

The DLC was accompanied by Title Update 5.0, which introduces Operative mask options amongst a plethora of bug fixes and general gameplay improvements.

Ubisoft, Behemoth Comics Partner for Watch Dogs: Legion Comic Series

ComicBook.com 07 July, 2021 - 03:27am

Ubisoft and comics publisher Behemoth Comics announced plans to release a comic book series based on Ubisoft Toronto’s Watch Dogs: Legion game. The first of the four-part comic series will be released on November 3rd when Watch Dogs: Legion #1 heads to comic book stores and releases online. It’ll be written by Sylvain Runberg with art by Gabriel Germain and covers created by both Germain and Alberto Massaggia.

The new series from Behemoth and Ubisoft was described as “complimentary” to the game while still being independent of Watch Dogs: Legion itself, so it sounds as though it’ll be approachable to readers whether they’ve done everything there is to do in Watch Dogs: Legion or they just bought the game recently.

Behemoth also provided a first look at the different cover variants for the first issue of the Watch Dogs: Legion comic series. Like the game’s marketing itself, the covers have a vibrant and rebellious feel to them. The first of the covers is shown above with two variants found below alongside a synopsis of the series from the publisher.

“London Calling! Mass surveillance, private militias bringing order to the streets, organized crime ... the city of London has become a symbol of widespread oppression, and only its people can free it. A resistance movement bringing together genius hackers and insurgents ready for combat, DedSec stands up to free the city from the yoke of these profiteers. While investigating mysterious disappearances in Kennington Oval Camp, journalist Louise Hartford will cross paths with Adam Logan, known as ‘Spiral,’ a London DJ whose music has become a symbol of revolt. Together, and with other companions in misfortune, they will have to infiltrate the spheres of power to unravel the truth.”

The plans to release the Watch Dogs: Legion comic series continue a trend of Ubisoft expanding on its games' universes through different mediums including graphic novels, comics, art books, and more. Most recently, the company released a Hyper Scape comic series with the help of Dark Horse. The same comics publisher is also helping Ubisoft set the stage for Far Cry 6 with a prequel series called Far Cry: Rite of Passage that’s halfway through its run now. Other examples of Ubisoft’s comic efforts include series featuring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and The Division.

Behemoth’s partnership with Ubisoft won’t end with this series either as the publishers are still working together for more projects in the future, though those have not yet been announced.

Watch Dogs: Legion #1 will release in stores and online on November 3rd.

Watch Dogs Legion Comic Book Will Expand on the Game's Universe - IGN

IGN 06 July, 2021 - 02:00pm

Also titled Watch Dogs Legion, this four-issue series is designed to operate as a standalone story while still focusing on the resistance organization known as DedSec and the conflicts of the game. The series is written by Sylvain Runberg (The Girl Who Danced With Death) and drawn by Gabriel Germain (Silencio). Germain and Alberto Massaggia will both provide covers for the series.

Get a closer look at the cover art for Watch Dogs Legion #1 in the slideshow gallery below:

Here's Behemoth's official summary for the series:

Have you read Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory?

Look for Watch Dogs Legion #1 to hit stores on November 3, 2021.

IGN's Dan Stapleton gave the Watch Dogs Legion game an 8 when it released in 2020, saying, "Watch Dogs Legion takes Ubisoft’s open-world hacker series in an interesting new direction by letting you swap between the inhabitants of a near-future London almost at will. There’s enough variety in the way different characters play to make that a good tradeoff for not having one traditionally progressing character with a fleshed-out personality, and playing with permadeath enabled ratchets up the tension of infiltrating heavily guarded areas. On top of that, the map is detailed and loaded with environmental puzzles to solve with a little help from your drones. Legion is technically a little rough, but its sandbox-style approach is a good idea that sets Watch Dogs’ moment-to-moment gameplay even further apart from the GTA series."
