Ubisoft kicks off with one of the most anticipated titles this year:
Set in a militarized London, you play as an array of resistance members who are trying to take back what they can. In the gameplay trailer, it shows you playing as Ian, a resistance fighter, who is attempting to recruit people to the cause. He finds someone who can help deal with the drones in the area, but he’s getting beat up. You step in to help, but the drones follow you to your safe zone and knock you out, resulting in a permadeath. Time to switch characters! Let’s see how little old lady, Helen Dashwood is faring. She’s a retired Police Engineer and a hacker. Picking up where Ian left off, Helen is now off to find that drone expert, Jimmy, Ian scanned earlier on. Helen heads into the Metropolitan Station to retrieve the drone expert’s files, using her hacking skills and spider drones to get to restricted areas and take out the guards. Once Helen gets the files, it’s time to get an assassin over to the area our drone specialist is hanging out. Our resident assassin is Naomi Brooke is on the scene. We find out that Jimmy’s sister was killed by Clan Kelley, and he’s in Camden Market seeking revenge for her death. Naomi sneaks through areas and even managed to get on top of a drone to make it past some barriers. She eventually makes it to Jimmy, and has a pretty intense battle that ends with them escaping and her convincing Jimmy to join DedSec.
This game brings what we’re used to about Watchdogs and takes it to a whole extra level, where virtually anyone is a playable character with their own abilities. Recruit anyone and everyone to the resistance, and work together to take down Albion.
It’s releasing March 6th, 2020.
