Original Watch Dogs protagonist, Aiden Pearce, will be a customizable playable character throughout the Watch Dogs: Legion campaign.
Live producer, Lathieeshe Thillainathan, elaborated on this point during a Reddit AMA session for the game. “Aiden can replay the full game and will have a dedicated DLC with Wrench. You don’t need to finish the DLC to play as Aiden in the single player story,” said Thillainathan.
As we know Watch Dogs: Legion doesn’t have a fixed protagonist. Players can take control of any NPC and leverage their skills. However, with Aiden being a fixed character, Thillainathan was asked how he’ll fit into the game. “”Aiden will be treated as another member of the team. We are writing the full single player story again with [Aiden’s] personality. When you replay the main missions again, Aiden will be integrated into all the original cinematics,” she clarified.
Watch Dogs: Legion Bloodline is a continuation of the original game in the series, following Aiden Pearce. Bloodlines will also feature Wrench from Watch Dogs 2. Two other unlockable characters include Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order, thanks to a cross-over with Assassin’s Creed, and Mina, a subject of transhuman experiments, who possesses the ability to mind control individuals.
