    #WatchDogsLegion wd.
    E3 is right around the corner and with it comes the early leaks! This year's victim is apparently the next Watch Dogs installment. According to a recent listing on Amazon UK (now taken down), the new game will be titled Watch Dogs Legion and had the following product description:

    According to this, it looks like the game will allow you to control any NPC you enlist. Kotaku reports that according to their sources, the title is indeed Legion, the NPC-control mechanic is also part of the gameplay and the game apparently takes place in London. The website further notes that "you’ll see different things at different points in the game depending which NPC you’re playing as".

    This is indeed an interesting mechanic and it would be even more interesting how it plays out in the game. Do you think it will work out, or is this just another baseless rumor?

    UPDATE:

    Following the widespread news of those leaks, the official Watch Dogs Twitter account posted a teaser trailer with the "God Save the NPCs" caption and confirming the game's title with the hashtag #WatchDogsLegion:

    More details to be unveiled during E3.

    I hope the next game will be a bit more respectful to the hacking community. This is what a hackerspace actually look like.

    Neat. Not too surprising since the first two games have been pretty successful. Hope they keep their winning streak alive.

    While I enjoyed the first well enough ( https://gbatemp.net/review/watch_dogs.150/ ) it fell far short of greatness, later saw the PS4 version too and not a lot different to not. I said given their showing here I would be interested in their next effort. Better but still short. This I will believe when I see it, especially given their track record this last few years.

    Probably more that amazon sells millions of items, many far more expensive than games, so some intern tasked with data entry clicked the wrong box and we get a sneak peek.

    That actually sounds awesome. I wonder if it's a Black Mirror scenario where the characters you're controlling are being blackmailed to do what you tell them?

    seems insteresting but no main character its hard to to pull off imo, so im guessing your just like an AI that enlists people and give them missions, kinda like Eagle Eye movie, but like i said without a main character the game can become abit unlikable.

    well they are npcs until you take over them and then they become main player until you skip to the next one and they go back at being npcs again :P, but yeah its a dificult situation to call them.

    Playing as every NPC?
    You don't see that everyday.
    if that really is the case I might give this game a try assuming if it releases.
