The Week In Games: Bloody Hell, Let's Hack The Planet

It’s time to hack the world, or at least London, in Watch Dogs Legion. The latest Ubisoft open-world game is out later this week on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

I was a fan of the original Watch Dogs and an even BIGGER fan of Watch Dogs 2. I love how colorful, wacky, and open that sequel felt. Legion, based on videos and trailers, seems less fun and more dreary. I’m fine with a game having a tone and sticking to it, but I think when all is said and done, I’ll still prefer the world of Watch Dogs 2 over this new game. But, I’m also interested in that whole “Play as anyone” feature, and annoying people by hacking stuff never gets old. As long as I can hack a car and drive into other cars and cause people to freak out, I’ll be a happy Watch Dogs player.

Beyond Watch Dogs Legion, other stuff is coming out this week too. Check out the full list below:

I am hyped for Legion...which feels weird because I haven’t actually seen anything from it that I’ve been terribly impressed with, but I absolutely adored WD2 and I get the impression that Legion is really leaning into the more absurd aspects of the series so far, which I’m totally into. If nothing else, it should be a fun way to kill time until Cyberpunk.
