Yes, lore fans, it seems at least in this case, Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs exist in the same Ubisoft universe. Darcy, a member of the brotherhood with the trademark hood and stealth, will appear as a character in the game.
"The AC crossover has been a long time in the making for us as a team," live producer, Lathieeshe Thillainathan told GamesRadar. The Watch Dogs Legion team worked with the Assassin's Creed team to bring the idea to life and create the female assassin.
"Darcy herself is heavily inspired from the Assassin's Creed universe, her movement style, her look, her abilities. She'll also have dedicated content that is specifically part of the AC universe that I can't go too far into it just yet."
...more familiar couple of characters who will make a return in the game are Aiden Pearce from the original game, and the much-loved Wrench from Watch Dogs 2. They'll have their own storyline with a new campaign called Bloodlines, and you'll be able to play through the main game as Aiden, Wrench, new character Mina (who has mind control powers), and Darcy.
Alongside these narrative treats, players can expect the standard co-op modes, dynamic events, an arcade-like spider bot battle arena, and a return of invasions throughout Year One. Thillainathan admits he's looking forward to seeing groups of grandmas working together to handle the challenges.
