Rumour has it that Ubisoft have been preparing for Watch Dogs: Legion reveal for a while now, but they remained true to their pre-E3 'tradition'. You know - the one where a Ubigame leaks just in time to drum up some excitement for E3.

So, Amazon UK apparently slipped and leaked Watch Dogs: Legion, although there are no dates or images. We're looking at a full AAA price of course, but there will be some novelties this time.

The description says, "Play as anyone. Every individual you meet in the open world has a full set of animations, voice overs, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems".

Watch Dogs: Legion's listing was caught by The Nerd Mag, but Kotaku's Jason Schreier chimed in with a few valuable nuggets of info. 

Apparently, the decision to not have a fixed protagonist and instead go with NPCs, was the reason behind at least one delay. The system is said to be so ambitious that Watch Dogs: Legion developers have had difficulty nailing it down, but hopefully they pull it off by E3.

Your choice of NPC player in Watch Dogs: Legion allegedly affects the narrative flow as well, which should make each playthrough unique, provided you change characters of course. 

That said, we're not sure what sort of demonstration we'll be getting from Ubisoft, but we'll definitely be getting something.

The rest of the Watch Dogs: Legion description reads, "Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It's a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London's fortunes."

Ubisoft said that London is a perfect playground for Watch Dogs: Legion, as the city oozes history and perhaps more importantly - it boasts one of the biggest surveillance systems on the globe.

Ubisoft confirmed that their new IP Roller Champions will be making an appearance at E3 as well. If you were hoping for Beyond Good and Evil 2 , however, you'll have to wait for E3 2020.
