The Daily Moot: Watch Dogs: LegionNews Picks
1. Watch Dogs: Legion
Watch Dogs: Legion has officially launched. Set in near-future London, the highly-anticipated game is the third in the Watch Dogs series and gives players the ability to “play as anyone,” as each character in the game is able to be recruited to your party. The Xbox version of the game launched with a game-breaking bug that prevented players from progressing in the campaign once they reached the aptly named mission “404,” but the issue has now been hotfixed. Watch Dogs: Legion is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One; you can check out the story trailer for the game below.
2. Cyberpunk Causing More Delays The most recent delay of Cyberpunk 2077 is apparently causing other gaming studios to delay their upcoming games and content as well. For example, developer Grinding Gear Games announced that they would be postponing the launch of Path of Exile’s end-game expansion from December 11 to January 2021 so that they would not have to compete with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. This is despite Grinding Gear Games claiming that the expansion is “in a very stable and polished state” and will be finished “by early/mid-December.” Cyberpunk 2077, which was expected to launch on November 19, is now set to arrive on December 10.
3. Shadowlands Release Date World of Warcraft’s upcoming Shadowlands expansion now has an official release date. Shadowlands was originally expected to launch on October 27, but was delayed until “later this year” in order to “polish the expansion and shore up the endgame.” The Shadowlands expansion will be World of Warcraft’s eighth major DLC, and will have players exploring the game’s version of the afterlife. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is set to arrive on November 23 with a pre-launch event starting November 10; you can check out the newly-released story trailer for the expansion below.
4. Far Cry 6 Delay During their recent earnings report, Ubisoft announced that the launch of Far Cry 6 will be delayed. The studio said that both Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine encountered “production challenges caused by COVID-19” which led to their delays. Although Ubisoft didn’t specify an exact release date, they said that Far Cry 6 won’t be coming out until April 2021 at the earliest, meaning that it will miss its planned launch day of February 18. You can check out the reveal trailer for Far Cry 6 below.
5. Final Fantasy 16 Details Square Enix just launched the official website for Final Fantasy 16, unveiling a ton of new details about the upcoming game. Some of the highlights include the reveal of the protagonist’s name: Clive Rosfield, as well as several of the other main characters in Joshua Rosfield (Clive’s younger brother) and Jill Warrick who is a childhood friend of the brothers. Although the website shares plenty of exciting information for Final Fantasy fans, it does not reveal any expected release date window for the game. The developers did note, however, that the “next big information reveal is scheduled for 2021.” In the meantime you can check out the Final Fantasy 16 official reveal trailer below.
