Watch Dogs: Legion is reduced by a whopping 35% on digital platforms for Black Friday with it even cheaper physically.
Game being on sale for black friday isnt news...
By 35%? When it came out three weeks ago?
Yea not news.
AC Origins and Odyssey were both going for decently below $40 the Black Fridays after their releases. It really pays to wait
Newer games often drop to $40 and sometimes $35 or so, but dropping to half the launch price in less than a month doesn't happen this fast usually.
Yes that's what Black Friday is all about huge deals and savings that's why, in the past at least, people have trampled over each other the second the doors opened.
It's not uncommon even for a new, popular and successful game to be on sale weeks after it's release. I don't know how many of those adjectives apply to WD:L, but it's true. 35% is on the high side, but it's happened before.
Here in Europe, it's the only next gen launch game that's on a discount. And it's a steep discount. Down to €45 from €70. Valhalla is not discounted because people are actually buying it and it got relatively good reviews (not personally interested in it though). We saw in a recent report that Legion did not register at all in the top games being played on both PS5 and XSX in the US. https://www.google.com/amp/...
The fact it can be had for $36 on Ubisoft's own website really surprised me - though I did abuse their sale a bit lol. Its on sale for $45, but if you buy 1 more item you can get 20% off your cart. So just to test, I threw a $0.50 piece of AC4 DLC in the cart. Low and behold, total is $36.31. For a game that launched 3 weeks ago, that feels pretty unprecedented. Not gonna buy it, but still...crazy low price.
It's a UBI game so it will drop in price
Exactly. This has happened to pretty much every single newly released game for the past three years. LOL
Have a look at Ubi forums for this game, its a broken mess.
Like every Ubisoft game.
I dont even think it's broken (on ps4 at least). Its just boring imo
It's uninspired, broken and worst of all boring. Played through half of it so far Im really struggling to find motivation to finish it and I really enjoy 1/2. They just dropped the ball on the writing on this one I don't care ultimately about play as anyone when you can't tell a decent story as a result
Yeh I just couldn't do it. WD2 was a lot of fun but Legion wore out it's welcome for me about 8 or 10 hours in. Uninstalled and will never be played again.
One of the main problems is that the main protagonist has only generic dialogues since they are random NPCs, the story hinges on the side characters that arent proceduraly generated to carry the narrative. I finished the campaign and liked it by the end and bagley was a very well written character, but yeah its not as good as WD 2.
Yes I agree Bagley was a very well written character and easily the best in the game. Unfortunately I felt that most of the conversation come of as one sided as a result of the generic replies which really do hurt character interactions.
Stiff competition in the marketplace w Spider-Man Miles Morales, a new Call Of Duty and Assassin's Creed, as well as new consoles have probably hurt sales. That sucks for the developers, but great for us gamers.
everyone said the story is bad so I don't plan on buying it honestly. say what you want about assassins creed but they usually have a mostly coherent story with some cool action
Did you like Watch Dogs 2? If you did you won't like Legion so you won't be missing anything.
Valhalla is actually pretty amazing. Better than Odyssey, better than Black Flag. I know people adore the story in 2, but this might be the best game in the series.
They been milking that franchise I cant play any of them it turns me off to the game kind of like Madden and the 2k series
Never played this franchise but the only way a developer is giving away a game with this kind of price drop like the article says is if the game is a flop. Knowing Ubisoft I do like them and some of their games but its probably a buggy pile of shit that is probably boring when you play it. I saw some of WD being played from what I saw I just can't get into that franchise.
then you've been paying literally zero attention the past few years
No it's called I play games that peak my interest or I play games that I like
Waiting for $5
It’s just not that fun. The open world is boring compared to something like GTA V. There aren’t multiple biomes, it’s tiny and nothing fun about exploring. I certainly won’t be anxious to buy the next one.
They need to go back to what watchdogs looked to be initially - a lonely noir linked to surveillance as an agent. Not this largest than life modern cyber group nonsense.
Agree but also I had a soft spot for 2 and it was a great decision to base the game in and around San Fran with entertaining characters like wrench and being able to explore Google and Facebook like campuses. It wasn't as serious as 1 which I also really liked equally as much. Booting up we legion I can't do it I've quit at the half way point all my characters say is brilliant or to right nothing of value which I knew was going to happen with this play as anyone garbage. Also I predicted the plot twist at the start of the game after reading a spoiler online I'm like well that's really uninspired lazy writing
It's a ubisoft game, should be expected.
Even on sale for $40 I won't pick this up. I'll buy the pathless instead.
I just was never a Watch Dog guy . I do someday want to play 1&2 but 3 sounds worse than those . The be anyone mechanic makes me believe the story will suffer because how can you tell a good story about being a random person , maybe it’s possible but you would have to be a damn good writer and need more time than they were given .
I enjoyed the first game and the second one didn't keep me interested enough to keep playing it after 3 hours. So after what I've been hearing, I won't mess with this unless it's even cheaper. But I probably would still never finish it.
Garbage game gets a discount...? Why is anyone surprised.
Because it's trash. Regardless of Black Friday, dropping 40% 3 weeks after release is a lot
This is like a "F**K you to the face of the consumers". Ubisoft likes doing this stuff. I bought assassin's creed origins at full price after 2 weeks they dropped the price. My instant reaction was "I'd never buy a an assassin's creed game at day one." Bought AC:Odyssey for almost halt the full price, and now I'm waiting for Valhalla's price to drop significantly. I am expecting it to happen before christmas.
This is funny. Another garbage game by Ubisoft
Glad I got it for 30 bucks, thats about whats uts worth.
It's broken, full of glitches and extremely repetitive. Sadly that describes the majority of Ubisoft's titles lately 🤷♂️
Maybe because Ubisoft can't make any decent single player games
I don't think I'd waste my time or the space on my console even if it was free; This entire IP is not very good lol.
Holy hell, Geekseek must desperate for clickies, ummm yeah, that title should be absolutely adjusted, so should the people that approved it (unless misleading is the way of the future). Obvious sale is not mysterious news.
All games that came out around that time will be on sale for black friday. I really don't understand why Watch Dogs is being singled out. Target has been running Buy 2 Get 1 for like 3 weeks now.
