The original Watch Dogs character Aiden Pearce will be available throughout Watch Dogs: Legion’s main campaign, and can be specialized.
The game’s live producer, Lathieeshe Thillainathan, said that “Aiden can replay the full game and will have a dedicated DLC with Wrench. You don’t need to finish the DLC to play as Aiden in the single-player story.” and added, “Aiden will be treated as another member of the team. We are writing the full single-player story again with [Aiden’s] personality. When you replay the main missions again, Aiden will be integrated into all the original cinematics.”
Moreover, three other characters, Wrench from Watch Dogs 2, Darcy, and Mina, will be playable; but it’s yet to be confirmed that these three players will be available throughout the main campaign. However, Thillainathan gave the good news that we will see these players both in single-player and online modes.
When it comes to the question about the customization of the characters, Lathieeshe Thillainathan answered by saying “Once they are on your team, you can customize them as you wish. can’t wait to see everyone’s version of Aiden and Wrench.”
Watch Dogs: Legion will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 29, and will be a launch title for Xbox Series X and S on November 10. It will arrive on PS5 digitally on November 12, and physically on November 24.
