We can't say we ever thought we would write a headline including the names Aiden Pearce and Stormzy, but it's 2020 and quite literally anything can happen. Yes, the UK superstar and the iconic protagonist we all know and love named Aiden Pearce will both feature in Watch Dogs Legion when it hits PlayStation 4 at the end of next month. One of those descriptions was definitely a joke, by the way.
The video above details how Stormzy will feature in Ubisoft's recreation of London, complete with a performance of his latest single on London Bridge. There will also be a mission all about him in the game named Fall on My Enemies. The sequence then shows off even more gameplay before landing on the real reason you clicked on this article — Aiden Pearce is back! Him and that iconic hat will be added to Watch Dogs Legion via a post-launch update for season pass owners along with a new story arc. Apparently we asked for this!
Aiden Pearce is a good reason to avoid the season pass!
Aiden is iconic?
That's a good comedy routine you got there. He will be remembered just as unanimously as Rayman or Ezio.
I almost missed the Iconic reference there.
Stormzy being there’s bizarre but he pretty much personifies London. Can we have Blandy McBlandface as a tiny cameo without speaking like in the second game? Plus he spells his name with an e instead of an a which is a war crime.
@TheFrenchiestFry Ubisoft seemed to strongly believe so back in 2014. Do you not like his Iconic Cap?
I am looking forward to having a team of pensioners at my disposal more than anything else.
Played the first game over and over again love it . 2nd one love the different things you can hack wonder whats hackable here lol
Yasssssss loved the first watchdogs, the second one one less so . Much prefer the darker vigilante story!
Aidan is one of the worst protagonists I've ever played as in a game. His ***** doesn't endear me to the season pass at all. He even still has his stupid Batman voice, which made me laugh out loud.
Never heard of Stormzy until this presentation, but his song just straight up sucked from the little they played of it.
I keep getting Stormzy mixed up with Stormy Daniels.
@AdamNovice Let's hope Trump didn't make the same mistake.
I don’t understand the hate for Watch Dogs and Aiden. I knew what to expect after the downgrade and it was a decent game.
Him being placed behind a season pass is a little annoying though.
(Blah blah minimum comment length requirement filler)
@ShogunRok did you not enjoy saving Aiden in Watch Dogs 2? Did you not wear the iconic jacket with pride?
Urgh rap "music" is not something that entices me to a game, hope i can avoid this guys level/section altogether.
Will def be buying this. I’m from the uk and love rap, but I can’t stand the uk accent when it comes to rapping. Completely puts me off, hopefully there’s an option to play with the music on. And I liked Aiden character from watch dogs 1
I quite liked Aiden Pearce, Watch_Dogs is one of the only games I've ever played twice, although I did skip every cut scene which may endear him more to me than others.
As for Stormzy I'm definitely too old to have any clue and I think I want to skip that scene for sure.
Iconic Aiden Pearce.
With that ICONIC HAT
Well done Ubisoft you just lost a customer. Anything that has that anti white piece of crap Stormzy in it, loses my money.
Stormzy is a racist, plain and simple. An untalented former gang member who constantly slags off white people in his so called 'music'
Turned up at Glastonbury in a stab vest and said he was representing London. What a scum bag. Aiden though, NOICE
Yeah I don't understand the hate for Aiden..the first game was so much better than the sequel which had the WORST cast of characters in any videogame ever.
This new game hasn't appealed to me ever since it's reveal.Bring back the darker feel of the original.
And as for Stormzy...definitely NOT a way to convince me to buy the game.
this will no doubt be awkward, weird and cringe
@Danloaded I did, but I couldn't understand why the characters were so in awe of him. When I played the original Watch Dogs Aiden was a lunatic. He ran so many innocent people over. Almost wished I'd left him in jail!
@resigamer28 You sound pleasant.
@ShogunRok yeh i never understood that either. Especially since at the end of the first game Aiden made an enemy of Dedsec
@resigamer28 Wow, triggered much?
@Col_McCafferty I'm plenty pleasant unlike Stormzy
Including Aiden make this the first time I am actually interested in Legion. The fact that it looks completely devoid of any story are characters makes me utterly uninterested in it. But it sounds like the Aiden functionality will be in a post-launch DLC?
I have been blowing up comments sections and message boards about how much I love Aiden Pearce, and the First Watch Dogs. It still is one of my favorite games of this console generation. So it definitely excites me that he's included in the game, although I'm not too thrilled about him being a bonus DLC character
Ok cool.. Still think this game would have benefited greatly from a main character.
Just not feeling this game at all.. It's hard to feel connected with the story with "npc's" but I gope they will prove me wrong.
My guess is after Aiden comes Marcus as a DLC character. Also Ubisoft again with the DLC promotion for a game that is not even out yet...
Aiden and stormzy.. I guess ubi thought a 1984 John Hurt DLC would be to much
Stormzy? Hard pass from me.
@resigamer28 well said mate I feel the same way.
This will be the first and only warning to stay on topic. Comments that are off topic will be removed.
This is weird...but Stormzy is an incredible artist and hopefully enhances the game! Looking forward to this
No idea who Stormzy is, but looking forward to playing as Aiden again!
Man, I wonder if one of the missions is going to a famous computer game dev, digging up evidence not only about the harrassment and abuse going on there but also how the higher-ups shielded the cuplrits from the consequences of their actions.
Wiley or no deal. Though, he seems to get himself in trouble a lot. Stormzy is boring.
@Col_McCafferty Is this dude a antiwhite dude if so i can understand the hate. I dont know the guy and i probably dont want too of he is like that. But i think his music sucks if thats his normal sound.
Is it just me but i think the game does not look that great?
Maybe I'm wrong, but weren't video games always meant to be escapism?
Why the need for sll this real world cross-promotion?
Maybe I'm petty, but few things turn me off as quickly as these contaminations do. They break the immersion and "magic" of a fictional world for me, just like they do in movies.
Keep your freaking advertisements off my game, please! I don't know who this dude is and, if anything, I'm even less inclined to find out now than I was before.
@Toadie here's a solution don't listen to it
@Taylorzombie Wow thanks for that, could never have come to that conclusion myself......
You also missed the part where i said i hope i can avoid his "singing" section so i don't have to, you know, actually listen to it.....
@Toadie ok babe
