Watch Dogs Legion Release Date Revealed

The official release date is Oct. 29, 2020. The release date was announced as part of the Ubisoft Forward digital conference.

The developers behind Watch Dogs Legion said in an interview that the seven months of extra time will add a lot to the game. They are currently focusing on expanding the "Play as Anyone" feature that makes the game unique. As part of that, the number of weapons has been expanded to include common items that ordinary people would have. One example they mentioned was construction workers will be holding tools like wrenches and nail guns that now count as weapons.

The additional time has also expanded the choices players can make when they play. Originally the game had permadeath where people that died stayed dead, but the developers say that this will be a separate mode so players can opt-in.
