Game company Ubisoft recently released two new trailers for upcoming video game Watch Dogs: Legion.
The first trailer focuses more on the story talking about how the players will be the ones who will handle the fate of London. Zero-Day, an unknown entity, has framed the secret underground resistance, DedSec, for the bombings that contributed to the fall of London.

It will bring real-time ray-tracing reflection to the game. Players who have the game on Xbox One and PS4 can upgrade it to the next-gen version for free.
In Watch Dogs: Legion, London is facing its downfall. Amidst the growing unrest of a restless London, an unknown entity named Zero-Day has framed secret underground resistance DedSec for coordinated bombings across London. In the aftermath, criminal opportunists from every corner of London took hold and filled the void left by a defeated government. As a member of DedSec, players will be going up against those criminal opportunists in Watch Dogs: Legion; sadists, mercenaries, cybercriminals, and more; they’ll have to be prepared for a variety of situations. Players must recruit members into their DedSec Resistance to take on these criminal opportunists, liberate London and uncover the identity of Zero-Day.
