It was announced during Ubisoft Forward that Aiden Pearce and Stormzy will be featured in Watch Dogs Legion.

Stormzy is an acclaimed British rapper and songwriter known for the Wicked Skengman series and his political activism. He will be playing himself in Watch Dogs Legion as he will send the player on several missions. Stormzy will also be providing original music for the games soundtrack.

In a press release that was made available, Creative Director Clint Hocking has stated,

“We are thrilled for Stormzy to be a part of Watch Dogs: Legion. His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. It’s been almost a year since we had Stormzy in the studio to film his performance. He lit up the room, and captivated us all. He’s a great collaborator, and it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”
