Based in London, Watch Dogs Legion is a departure from Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2, which featured solo protagonists. Here, the players can recruit almost any character they see in the game world into DedSec. Each character that players recruit will also come with their own unique abilities and play styles.

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, also made an appearance during the Ubisoft Forward stream. He confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion will be coming to Xbox Series X. He added that the game will feature smart delivery, meaning it will be available across Xbox One and Series X with a single purchase. Ubisoft later also confirmed that the game will come to PS5, with PS4 users getting the upgrade for free.
