The game takes place in a futuristic London and allows you to recruit absolutely every character available on the map for the DeadSec hacker organization.

During the free weekend players will be able to test the game without restrictions and later transfer their progress to the full version if they decide to buy it. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the city of London is dominated by an authoritarian force and it’s up to players to set it free. In addition to traditional hacks, recruiting becomes a big focus in this chapter.
All characters can be convinced to join the cause if the player discovers what motivates them. It is noteworthy that all bring unique abilities and quirks, and can range from unemployed to secret spies fighting with DeadSec against Albion.
