Watch Dogs Legion Features UK Rapper Stormzy, Watch Dogs 1's Aiden Pearce

Watch Dogs Legion is set to release next month, and during Ubisoft’s latest Ubisoft Forward event, it revealed some unexpected news: You’ll be able to play as massively popular British rapper Stormzy in the game alongside the other characters.

For those unfamiliar with the UK underground rap scene, Stormzy is an outspoken award-winning rapper and songwriter. If you’re not familiar with his work, be sure to check him out on Spotify, Apple Music, or whatever your choice of music streaming platform.

This was confirmed along with the new Play As Anyone trailer shown off during the event. Watch Dogs Legion doesn’t feature a main protagonist, as you are able to make up your roster of characters based on your personal preferences. That includes an army of hacker grandmothers, if you so choose.

The presentation also included information on post-launch content for the game. Watch Dogs 1 protagonist Aiden Pierce is coming back as a unique playable hero in his own story DLC. It’ll be available as part of the game’s season pass sometime after the game’s release.

Watch Dogs Legion releases on October 29 for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Stadia, with free upgrades to Xbox Series X/S and PS5 coming once those consoles have launched.
