Aiden Pearce, the protagonist of the original game, is making a trip to London in a piece of story DLC for Watch Dogs: Legion.
With several long-running franchises, Ubisoft is one to often make references to past games or feature crossovers with different characters. Watch Dogs: Legion, notably, is set to feature the return of a familiar face from the series’ past as part of the game’s post-launch content sometime in the future.
During the Ubisoft Forward presentation today, Ubisoft showcased some new gameplay footage and details from the upcoming Watch Dogs: Legion. Specifically, one of the most interesting new pieces shown from the game is that Aiden Pearce, the protagonist from the original Watch Dogs, will be making his return in the upcoming title. You can check out the teaser trailer below:
As detailed by Ubisoft, Aiden Pearce will be added to the game through a piece of DLC in the Season Pass for Watch Dogs: Legion, which will feature a standalone story chapter starring Pearce. The trailer above showcases a bit of gameplay featuring Pearce from his DLC story, though we’ll have to see how his storyline fits in with the broader narrative of Watch Dogs: Legion, and why he is making the trip out to London.
This of course isn’t the first time that Aiden has made an appearance, as he also had a cameo appearance in 2016’s Watch Dogs 2. Going from Chicago to San Francisco, it seems like Aiden is quite the traveler, but longtime fans of the series should nonetheless be interested in seeing him make his way back to the series and to see what he has been doing. Spoilers: probably a lot of hacking.
