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 a unique mission starring the massively popular British rapper Stormzy in the game alongside the other characters.

The mission is called “Fall on My Enemies,” and sees you helping Stormzy secure a broadcast to play his music to the people of London. 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 expansion. It’ll be available as part of the game’s season pass, which also contains extra DedSec missions, four unique heroes, and even a digital copy of the complete edition of Watch Dogs 1. The first part of the Aiden Pierce post-launch expansion will arrive sometime after the game’s launch.

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.
