Legion is set in a futuristic post-Brexit reality. At this time, no release date has been confirmed for Legion, but the next installment in the hacking series is due for 2020.
The trailer reveals hints the upcoming battle royale game Hyper Scape, which was very recently announced for PC. Console versions are also expected at a later date.
According to Ubisoft, Hyper Scape is described as "the one and only urban futuristic free-to-play Battle Royale where Contenders engage high and low in close-quarters, fast-paced FPS battles to become the next global Champion."
Hyper Scape will further "change the way we watch video games by allowing streamers and content creators to interact with their audiences like never before."
Valhalla is due for release in Holiday 2020, launching on the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X, including current-gen platforms. Back in April, Ubisoft gave Assassin's Creed II for free on PC via their service uPlay service.
