Ahead of the big Watch Dogs: Legion reveal during today’s Ubisoft Forward online presentation, Ubisoft rolled out a faux-live-action short film setting the game’s stage: The city of London in the grip of an authoritarian surveillance regime, where every step is seen and tracked, and no deviation from the strictures of the law is tolerated.

The first couple of minutes of the video provides a quick overview of a familiar but fantastical London, which has rapidly spiraled downward into an embrace of bigotry, fascism, and technology without oversight. It’s not pleasant, but there’s a glimmer of hope at the end: A common man, standing up for what’s right, because he knows the consequences of staying silent.
