Watch Dogs: Legion Debuts “Rainfall” Music Video Featuring London Rapper Stormzy
Ubisoft and rapper Stormzy collaborate for a brand new Watch Dogs: Legion music video Rainfall, part of a special mission available at launch.
Since the debut of the third installment of the Watch Dogs franchise during last year’s E3 presentation, Watch Dogs: Legion has been one of Ubisoft’s most highly anticipated titles.
In order to reflect the more diverse setting and characters of London, Ubisoft worked with acclaimed rapper and entertainer Stormzy to create a relevant and exclusive song. You can check out a sneak peak of some behind the scenes footage of his brand new music video Rainfall, which will be part of a special mission available at launch. The reveal trailer is below, which shows off parts of his mo-cap session as well:
During the Ubisoft Forward presentation it was revealed that Aiden Pearce, the protagonist from the original Watch Dogs, will be making his return in the upcoming Legion through standalone DLC. We also found out how agent recruitment will work. Players will have to convince a character to join by completing a simple quest. The trailer gives a few examples such as someone’s friend has gone missing and you have to find them, a gang is terrifying a particular area, or the government may be overreaching their power and you have to put a stop to it.
Each character has their own role or class. Some are getaway drivers, hackers, or assassins while others are ordinary people you pass by every day. Regardless of their profession, they all have three potential special abilities that make playing as that character unique. Getaway drivers for instance have a custom suped-up car, are immune to car-chase drones, and can hack other vehicles to get out of the way during a chase.
But not all recruits are made equal, as some are more legendary and only appear in certain places. The trailer shows off one such unique recruit: a robotic beekeeper. She can sick a swarm of robo-bees on enemies and is armed with an electric weapon.
Watch Dogs: Legion will be available on October 29th 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Stadia. Along with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion is the other next-gen title from Ubisoft that will be available on November 10th for Xbox Series X and S. The PS5 version of the game will launch alongside the other version when it releases.
The third installment in Ubisoft’s modern-day open-world franchise will take place in post-Brexit London, where a military corporation has gained control over the city, trying to arrest and takedown every protestor in the city.
