Ubisoft is pulling no punches in this year’s E3 conference with an extensive look at the gameplay and combat of Watch Dogs: Legion.

Watch Dogs eventually being drawn to the surveillance state of London was a natural move. With drones and government death squads roaming the streets, Watch Dogs: Legion allows players to recruit and take control of any NPC that is willing to join DedSec.

The game has a heavy focus on “play as anyone” with a large section of the demo switching between perspectives and even focusing on a sweet elderly retired assassin, Helen, as she infiltrates an enemy base with a spider drone before casually escaping on the bus. Each character comes equipped with their own unique set of skills, Ocean’s Eleven style, with fighters, hackers and athletic types being some of the highlighted skillsets.

One aspect that ties all of the characters together is the ominous voice of Bagley, a potential AI system that guides DedSec operatives to their destination. Possibly the most shocking inclusion to Watch Dogs: Legion is permadeath. While gamers are allowed to play as anyone, this feature also opens the possibility to lose everyone as well. Each character comes fully animated and voiced and, upon becoming incapacitated, can either surrender or resist the enemies. Whether players will be able to rescue their surrendered companions is yet to be seen.

Watch Dogs: Legion will be released on March 6, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Ubisoft has unveiled the game’s Collector’s Edition.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
