Ubisoft Toronto’s Watch Dogs: Legion Is A Triumph Of Innovative Game Design

Playing as multiple characters in a video game is not a novel concept, especially in party-based RPGs. In fact, you could even argue that allowing you to take on the roles of many different characters is one of the most unique and compelling aspects of the medium. But what about a game where you can play like nobody? That's the elevator pitch behind Ubisoft Toronto's new open-world hacking game, Watch Dogs: Legion. Where 2014's watchdogs made you play as vengeful Uncle Aiden Pearce and 2016 Watch dogs 2 put yourself in the shoes of the charming hacktivist Marcus Holloway, Legion allows you to recruit and control any non-player character (NPC), out of a few selected static key figures, in their virtual representation of a London of the near future.While this is an incredibly ambiti...

Ubisoft isn’t raising the price of next-gen video games yet

While rumours have been swirling for several weeks that video games for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 would cost $89.99 CAD, an increase from $79.99 CAD for current Xbox One and PlayStation 4 titles, it seems at least one publisher isn’t quite ready to commit to the price jump. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed during an earnings call on Wednesday that the company’s upcoming titles for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will still cost $59.99 USD ($79.99 CAD) — at least for now. Guillemot’s statement that Ubisoft’s “Christmas releases” will still cost $59 USD ($79.99 CAD) indicates that while the price isn’t going up now, it probably will in the future. It’s likely when Ubisoft’s games switch to only being developed for n...
