Watch Dogs: Legion
Everyone’s favorite hacker themed video game franchise is back, as Ubisoft officially revealed Watch Dogs: Legion during its E3 2019 press conference. Set in a dystopian London, Watch Dogs: Legion will allow you to play in a truly ambitious manner with players having the ability to recruit and play as any NPC character they find in the city. This concept was highlighted perfectly by the gameplay reveal for Watch Dogs: Legion where an Elderly woman, who turned out to be a retired assassin, named Helen was shown using drones to hack into enemy technology and taking down armed guards following the player having died when using another Deadsec member.
The new title of Roller Champions was also revealed during the E3 2019 press conference from Ubisoft, and it looks to be a title that will satisfy any competitor’s need for adrenaline-fueled competition. A free-to-play PVP sports game, Roller Champions is Roller Derby turned up to the max in a way only a video game could capture. Players can try Roller Champions out for free currently, as there is a demo for the newly announced game available on PC through the Uplay store until June 14th.
