In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing collapse. In the middle of increasing unrest, an entity by the name of Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance, DedSec, for planned bombings across the city.

The aftermath has paved the way for criminals from every nook and cranny in London to fill the void left by a defeated government.

As a member of DedSec, players will face the criminals who threaten to tear London down; with sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals and more to fight, users should prepare for any situation.

Recruit members of the resistance in order to take down the opportunists, liberate London, and reveal the mysterious identity of Zero-Day.

Fans can play Watch Dogs: Legion for free on PS5, PS4, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, and Stadia from September 3rd to September 5th, 2021; players will have access to the single-player campaign and online mode.
