Musician to record video inside Watch Dogs Legion.
Watch Dogs Legion is Ubisoft’s next big release. The third game in the famous hacking franchise will arrive later this month, more specifically on October 29th. Surprisingly, the devs used the protagonist, putting the DedSec group in great evidence for the first time. Without a fixed role, the hacktivist group is the great star of the work. Players need to recruit NPCs scattered around the city to assist in the resumption of London.
Interestingly, more than a stage for hackers, Watch Dogs Legion will serve as the location for recording a music video. The musician Stormzy decided to record the clip of the song Rainfall inside the game. Music is obviously one of the songs that pack the project’s soundtrack.
9 hours and counting until the world premiere of Stormzy’s music video for Rainfall created entirely in Watch Dogs: Legion!

This is certainly an initiative that can be successful. Stormzy’s musical style matches the game very well, which can attract many fans to the game and the artist itself. Surprisingly, this is not the first time in the year that an artist has gained prominence for creating a music video in a game. Singer Noah Cyrus also used a game, Dreams, to record one of her clips. This crossmedia between the entertainment media has become more and more frequent, showing that initiatives like this are here to stay.
About Watch Dogs Legion
In the plot, a terrorist known as Zero Day has detonated bombs in London. However, he blames the attacks on the DedSec group, causing the government to declare the organization as a terrorist entity. Thanks to this, a brutal hunt against the group is initiated. Amid such chaos, London still suffers from two organizations. The military group Albion, which has used ctOS to dominate the city and Clan Kelley, a criminal faction that controls the city through the Dark Web. Surprisingly, the title will have several brutal missions involving controversial topics such as organ trafficking and government repression.
As expected, the game will feature a very robust Season Pass with dozens of missions and new content. In short, the two big highlights go to the set of missions involving Aiden Pearce, the protagonist of the first game, and, for the missions related to Assassin’s Creed. Yes, the universe of both franchises will finally be intertwined through these missions. Watch Dogs Legion will be released on October 29, 2020 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will have a free upgrade for the new generation of consoles.
