Watch Dogs: Legion will let you play as a robotic beekeeper and Aiden Pearce

Ubisoft shared new details on Watch Dogs: Legion Thursday during its Ubisoft Forward event. The publisher debuted a new gameplay trailer, offering a detailed look at all the different people you can hack and recruit in the open-world game.

The footage showed some of the people you can play as, including a street artist that shoots non-lethal paint balls and a beekeeper that — you guessed it — controls robot bees.

Following the trailer, Ubisoft revealed that Aiden Pearce, the original Watch Dogs protagonist, will join the game as a fully playable character. Apparently, some people asked for him — but we aren’t sure who. (Pearce will be added as “post-launch content,” when he’ll have his own “dedicated story arc.”)

Watch Dogs: Legion was originally slated for a March 3 launch, but the game was delayed last year to “increase development time.” Watch Dogs: Legion will be released Oct. 29 on Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. It’ll come to Xbox Series X on Nov. 10 when that console is released. It’s coming to PlayStation 5, too — but Sony has not announced when its console is coming.

Ubisoft claims it’s working to address reports of harassment, sexual misconduct, and racial insensitivity at the company, in the wake of employees speaking out about a longstanding toxic work culture. Since those stories emerged, multiple executives have resigned or been fired from Ubisoft. The company’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, issued a public apology in a video released ahead of the company’s latest Ubisoft Forward presentation, saying he’s “fully committed to leading the change at Ubisoft and to ensuring we always uphold and exemplify our core values.” Guillemot’s comments were notably not included in the live Ubisoft Forward presentation.
