Watch Dogs Legion is Real, Play As Any NPC Feature Officially Teased

It wouldn't be the run up to E3 without at least a couple of big Ubisoft announcements getting out into the wild early, and E3 2019 is seemingly no exception.

Firstly, we had key art and footage for Roller Champions, a multiplayer only roller derby themed video game leaked the other week, but that is almost forgetable in the face of this week's other Ubisoft related game leak, Watch Dogs Legion.

Initially leaked by an early listing on Amazon UK, Watch Dogs Legion was listed as allowing players to play as any NPC in the game, changing your voice lines, appearance, animations and more.

"Play as anyone. Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems."

While the leak was initially not acknowledged, the official Watch Dogs Twitter last night not only changed its name to Watch Dogs Legion, but also tweeted "god save the NPCs", a clear reference to being able to play as any character in the game world. The phrase would also seem to confirm the much rumoured post Brexit London setting.

The tweet unsurprisingly confirms an E3 reveal, so we don't have long now to wait to see how ambitious this new game is.
