I can finally reveal the game I’ve been working on ever since I joined the Ubi team! It’s been a blast so far, learned lots from it and you guys are about to experience a great world with awesome missions!
Watch Dogs 1: I'm gonna hack things
Watch Dogs 2: I'm gonna hack things again
Watch Dogs 3: a'ight luv proper blighter out innit okay let's gerrup them apples and pears and hack a lorry, you takin’ a piss mate? FOOKIN CHRIST
I guess those will be: Aiden, T-Bone, Marcus and Wrench????
Not quite sure what exactly they mean with “game-changing abilities”. And if those “iconic heroes” are really going to be characters from the previous two games, then will they be really these characters, integrated within the story, or are they just some sort of skin?
“one familiar mask reward for your heroes”
So, it’s going to be either Defalt’s or Wrench’s mask.
Hi in this essay I’d like to infodump about characters from a game that came out years ago. So Watch Dogs: Legion was announced recently and reignited my love of Watch Dogs 2, which is rad! I’ve been playing it again and was happy to find people still hanging out to do online missions with me, so maybe this fandom isn’t totally dead! (Find me on Xbox as New Dark Siren if you wanna join btw).
Getting to the point, I’m emotional because I was reminded of why this game was so important to me. Not only is it just fun, but the representation in it was wonderful. A black male main character that’s allowed to show a wide range of emotions! An Autistic character that is actually called autistic!!! None of that “implications because the creators are huge cowards” nonsense. Another character with chronic pain! This one wasn’t stated in game unfortunately, but it was confirmed by one of the developers and you can see him limping in cut scenes.
Then there’s the LGBT inclusion! You can visit the pride street in San Fran and even buy pride merch! And there’s a trans woman of color who is a total badass and is included quite a lot in the main plot!
There’s really no point to this text post I’m just emotional. As someone who is gay, autistic, and who suffers from chronic pain this game means a lot to me. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
When are we gonna stop pretending the authoritarian late capitalism hellscape today’s dystopian fiction is trying to sell us as a possible future isn’t exactly what we are living now, but with more neon?
So with Wrench being here...Is Dedsec here? Where’s Marcus and Co?
Woof, you know anon I wish the rest of Dedsec was here! One minute Marcus and I are hacking some drones flying around good ol’ San Fran and then the next there is this weird as fuckin dark fog ass shit and I got distracted, ain’t gonna lie, so I investigated and now hey here I am! So…no Marcus and Sitara and Josh ain’t here but…fuck man I wish they were.
WAIT WRENCH?!? When did you get here?! And...how? How many other people are here???
Pinky stole my mask, I steal her fucking blog! Wrench is always here BABY! I’ll fuck around for a bit here before I go back to the love of my life Marcus! He loves me, did you know that? Don’t worry about how many people are here, right now it’s just meeee and you anon. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
It’s only in the background but one thing I noticed in the Watch Dogs Legion trailer is the look of the Union Jack.
(terrible quality but it’s a zoomed-in pic)
The emphasis on the St David flag and what seems to be the lack of blue made me briefly think that, in this timeline, Scotland has jumped ship.
Probably just projection on my part but MAN wouldn’t that be fucking nice.
Anyways, I’ll wait to see actual gameplay before I decide whether or not I wanna play this, but any game that has Brits take back control of their freedoms over their increasingly Orwellian government gets a thumbs up from me.
Okay. Since WD Legion have Assassin NPC(s) and WD/AC is in the same universe, so do you think they are the same Assassin from The Creed or just some hitman called themselves Assassins?
Honestly I want to believe some of them are Assassins from the brotherhood, maybe not all of them, but taking in mind how Ubi loves their easter eggs I hope there will be at least one NPC that will hint at being from the Brotherhood.
Then again I firmly believe Helen definitely sends cookies to William and is the grandma of the brotherhood, you can fight me over this.
