Ubisoft has just unveiled a brand-new trailer for their upcoming open-world action game Watch Dogs: Legion titled Welcome to London. The trailer provides a tour of the most iconic locations in the country’s capital. It has also showcased the game’s gorgeous ray tracing support powered by Nvidia’s line-up of GeForce RTX technology.

Watch Dogs: Legion will take a dramatically different direction in comparison to its two previous predecessors, Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2. In those two games, we followed the adventures and hijinks of protagonists Aiden Pearce and Marcus Holloway, respectively. However, in Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft will now no longer bind the resistance to a single character, but instead give the players all of the London population as a pool of prospective recruits, each with their own skill sets and abilities that they can bring to the table, hence the name Legion.

The story starts off when a mysterious assailant unleashes several devastating attacks on London. These acts of terror are then pinned to the underground resistance known as DedSec and has caused the organization to teeter on the brink of extinction. It is now up to the player to rebuild DedSec from the ground up, weaponize London’s tech infrastructure, and unleash DedSec’s mastery of technology. Several gadgets are now at the player’s disposal such as the Stealth Cloak, the Spiderbot, a Micro-Missile Launcher, and the powerful Electro Fist.

Perhaps the biggest allure of Watch Dogs: Legion, as with any of the previous Watch Dogs titles, is Ubisoft’s creative reimagining of some of the world’s most iconic real-life locations, with Chicago and San Francisco faithfully represented in Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2, respectively. In Legion, London will be brought to life as seen in the two minute Welcome to London trailer. Despite the game’s almost cyberpunk-esque recreation of these locations, Ubisoft still strives to create a sense of familiarity in these places such as Battersea, Southwark, and Camden, and other point of interests such as Big Ben, the London Eye, and Trafalgar Square.

Watch Dogs: Legion is set to launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC via the Epic Games Store and Uplay on October 29.
