Watch Dogs: Legion DLC will bring back Aiden Pearce, still wearing his iconic cap

To the delight of perhaps as many as seven people, Ubisoft today announced that Watch_Underscore_Dogs protagonist Aiden "The Fox" Pearce will come to Watch Dogs: Legion in DLC. Six years after the first game, he's still wearing his stupid coat and "iconic" cap as he visits London for surly business. He's not even washed the cap.

Cyberpunk 2077 and COD Cold War’s new ray tracing trailers make me long for darkness

Hot off the heels of last night's Nvidia Ampere reveal, we also got new ray tracing trailers for Cyberpunk 2077, Minecraft, Watch Dogs Legion, and the newly announced Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. I've collected them altogether below, but the Cyberpunk 2077 one is particularly shiny, if only because it's a new "max settings 4K trailer" showing CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG at…

Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs will come with Watch Dogs Legion and a year of GeForce Now for free

If the comparatively low prices of the new Nvidia Ampere RTX 3000 graphics cards weren't already enough to tempt you into upgrading your GPU this year, then Nvidia's freshly-announced RTX 3000 bundle will no doubt sweeten the deal further. I mean, RTX 2080 Ti-level performance for £469 / $499 on the RTX 3070 is already a tantalising proposition, I must admit, but anyone who buys…

Watch Dogs Legion will let you recruit a deadly beekeeper

It seems like one of the best parts of Watch Dogs Legion's whole "play as anyone" thing will be all the wacky different kinds of NPCs you're able to sign on. In a new video, Ubisoft show off a recruitment mission in which DedSec agents help out a beekeeper. Why the heck would you want a beekeeper on your squad? They can shoot out a…

The next Ubisoft Forward showcase is coming in September

Don't look now, FakE3 isn't over just yet. We've still got the next Xbox event tomorrow and yet another Ubisoft Forward too. The latter, it turns out, will be coming in September. The news came during Ubisoft's quarterly earnings call. At what point do we stop calling it unofficial E3 and just admit we've bled into holiday reveals season? Never? Ah, swell.

Watch Dogs: Legion launching on October 29th

Ubisoft today announced an October 29th release date for Watch Dogs: Legion and introduced a few of the potential stars in new videos. Legion hops over the proverbial pond to focus on DedSec operatives in London fighting The Man by hacking the oeuvre of David Mamet [the planet -rhyming slang ed.], and this time we can play all sorts of different people by recruiting NPCs…

Watch Dog Legion’s creative director was interviewed by the BBC inside the game’s virtual Piccadilly Circus

For a very extra interview, BBC reporter Mark Cieslak got all mo-cap suited up to have a conversation inside Watch Dogs Legion's virtual city of London with the game's creative director, Clint Hocking (you know, instead of using Discord or some sort of in-game chat function). This isn't the sort of "oh look at our cool tech" interview that I expected however, as the pair…

Ubisoft’s revamped editorial board want to stop stagnation in their games

Pop quiz, readers. If I say Ubisoft, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Massive, systemic open worlds? Towers wot you climb to unlock the map? Extensive skills trees and an apolitical approach to politically charged themes? France? For the last 20 years, everything that makes a Ubisoft game tick has been decided by a Paris-based editorial board. As it happens, having a select…

Watch Dogs: Legion spec work is “completely voluntary”, Ubisoft shrug and suggest

Ubisoft have defended their decision to source some of Watch Dogs: Legion's soundtrack through spec work, saying it's "completely voluntary" for fans to create music hoping Ubi might pick it and pay them for their work. Ubi announced this "opportunity" last week, saying they will put ten fan-made tracks into the game. I suppose it is voluntary, as much as any other work is voluntary.…

Ubisoft returns to requesting fan labour for Watch Dogs Legion

Last year, Ubisoft announced a partnership with HitRecord, a collaborative website that allows creators to upload work, and remix others’, in order to get art and assets for Beyond Good And Evil 2 from fans. It caused many to speak out against the idea of sourcing labour from invested outsiders rather than salaried employees, as well as the concept of “spec work.” Ubisoft was asking…

Ubisoft continue to claim their games don’t have political stances, are still wrong

Ubisoft, who make RPGs about a 3000-year-long battle between freedom and order, FPSs about liberating occupied lands, and military shooters so jingoistic they cause governmental complaints, have been arguing for a long time that their games aren’t political. Yesterday, they posted an interview with Tommy Francois, vice president of editorial, in an attempt to clarify their position. It did not help.

A store listing for the third-person hack 'em up appeared, spotted by The Nerd Mag, which described the game as being set in the Britland capital and allowing the player to “play as anyone”, suggesting that you can control…
