Ubisoft’s newly announced Watch Dogs Legion allows you to play as anyone in its depiction of near-future London. Every passer-by can be scanned and then eventually recruited to the cause of the resistance.

On top of that, the season pass for the game promises to add ‘four iconic heroes’ after launch. But who will they be? If you’re listening, Ubisoft, here are some suggestions.

Ubisoft’s newly announced Watch Dogs Legion allows you to play as anyone in its depiction of near-future London. Every passer-by can be scanned and then eventually recruited to the cause of the resistance.

On top of that, the season pass for the game promises to add ‘four iconic heroes’ after launch. But who will they be? If you’re listening, Ubisoft, here are some suggestions.

1. The Queen

Helen the badass ex-assassin OAP was undoubtedly a highlight of the Watch Dogs Legion trailer, and we can only think of one elderly matriarch who could possibly follow in her footsteps. The Queen would naturally wield a ceremonial mace as a melee weapon, and summon corgis for support attacks.

2. Noel Edmonds

The coiffured beardmonger would surely be a natural addition to future London. His specialist skill of speaking gently to confused gameshow contestants while seeding doubt in their minds would come in handy during hostage negotiations. And if you have Edmonds, you simply have to include…

3. Mr Blobby

A natural berserker-type character, the war cry of the pink monster would strike fear into the hearts of Albion mercenaries across the capital.

Blobby.

Blobby.

BLOBBY.

4. Danny Dyer

Ian from the Watch Dogs Legion trailer supplied a fair amount of geezer-ness, but we could really up the cockney quota with the inclusion of Dyer. His special skill would be telling it like it is.

5. David Attenborough

The kindly nonagenarian could command the animals of London, sending phalanxes of pigeons and mangy foxes to attack his foes.

6. Noel Fielding

The Camden leisure pirate would be right at home in the seedy Camden Market depicted in the trailer. His attacks are mostly based on baked goods, including a pastry sword and Viennese swirl shield.

7. A Pigeon

I mean, why not? They’re blimmin’ everywhere in London.

8. Sharon from EastEnders

The run-down boozer glimpsed in the Watch Dogs Legion trailer would be the perfect stomping ground for East London’s most formidable fictional landlady. She would easily be able to terrorise the security forces into submission by bellowing catch phrases such as “LEAVE IT!” and “YOU’RE DEAD TO ME NAH!”

9. Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones member would make a flamboyant addition to the Watch Dogs Legion cast, but more importantly, the permadeath mechanic would have no effect on him. Considering everything he has lived through and survived, we can basically assume he’s indestructible.
