The game trailer and the music video genres collide and become one. This new promo starring British rapper / phenomenon Stormzy's CG doppelganger, produced entirely in the Watch Dogs: Legion game engine by Ubisoft Toronto.
Stormzy will also appear in-game as part of The Resistance, with players trying to help him secure a broadcast of his track in Central London.
Clint Hocking, CD at Ubisoft Toronto: “We are very happy that Stormzy is part of Watch Dogs: Legion. His music and what he speaks to as an artist are extremely relevant to our London environment and to 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 the room and fascinated us all. He's a great employee and it was a career highlight for us to work with him. "
"Rainfall" (feat. Tiana Major9) is the latest single from Stormzy's number 1, gold-selling album "Heavy Is The Head," which was released in December 2019.
Watch Dogs: Legion is the third installment in the action-adventure franchise developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. It will be released on October 29, 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation4, Stadia, and for Windows PCs on Epic Games and Uplay.
