Watch Dogs Legion Has Five Main Storylines
Watch Dogs Legion is implementing a brand new way to tell its stories, and this has to lead to thought in the minds of the fans that the game could be coming with no main story at all. That's wrong, as explained in a recent interview with Spiel Times by the game design director Kent Hudson.
Despite playing with hundreds of different characters in an almost free fashion, says Hudson, the game will retain the themes that have made the franchise so popular until today and will include five main storylines we'll get to follow across the golden path.
"I know 'play as anyone' is kind of a crazy technological innovation with the simulation we’ve done, but the story is still a huge part of the game," acknowledged Hudson. "It’s a huge part of the franchise, and this game is no different."
As said, he added that "we’ve got five different storylines in the game, so it’s five main – you could call them quest lines if you want - and each one of them is tied to one of our thematic pillars." This means that you'll recognize you're in a Watch Dogs game right away.
Spiel Times was shown a storyline "about the surveillance state," where London and the entire nation have become places where the governments start "spying on the citizens." Another is about private military contractors who have "supplanted the police in the city" and has taken over it.
Hudson explained that Watch Dogs Legion has three more to these and that some deeper stuff has been taken under wraps for the release of the game, which is planned for March 6, 2020. So, rest assure that story is going to have a significant role even if you're probably be changing your protagonist a lot of times through it.
