Far Cry 6 announced for realsies, coming in February 2021

Assassin's Creed Valhalla doesn't feel like an…

Feature: A-hoo! Hackers of London!

Preview: a year on, Watch Dogs Legion’s “play as anyone” is so crazy it might just work

I don't go round singing "Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner!" or anything, but out of all the places I've lived so far, London is the one I think of as home. And this so happens to be the setting for hacktion-adventure game Watch Dogs Legion, which is definitely not called Watch Dogs London despite how often I accidentally say that. It's a dystopian near-future…
