In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its worst moment. Amid growing unrest in a city overtaken by chaos, a mysterious entity known as Zero-Day sets up the secret underground resistance DedSec to be accused of conducting coordinated bombings in different parts of London. In this scenario, opportunistic criminals from all corners of the city take control of the place and fill the defeated rulers’ void. As members of the DedSec Resistance, players will face sadists, mercenaries, and cybercriminals, among other enemies, and will need to be ready for a variety of situations, in addition to recruiting new companions in the fight for London’s freedom and to unlock the secrets behind Zero-Day.
