Watch Dogs® Legion: Daybreak Legacy

By Stewart Hotston

The underground resistance movement from Day Zero returns to navigate the perils of emergent AI and an authoritarian state, in this gritty, high-tech thriller set in the world of Watch Dogs® Legion

London is still going to hell, even with Albion on the back foot, but Olly and Ro are hard at work finding allies for DedSec and taking down the bad guys. When a job goes awry, they end up doxxed, on the run, and in serious trouble. Bagley, the DedSec AI, gets involved and discovers someone new, someone just like him… another ghost in the machine. Frenemy hacktivist network, 404, tips them off that since terminating the ambitious plan to digitize human consciousness, Project Daybreak, DedSec has become the target for a new player in London. Looks like Project Daybreak isn’t as dead as they thought, and neither are those who died with it.

Interviews and Articles

“A great examination of the moral and philosophical questions around the development of AI”
Big Geordie Geek

“Watch Dogs Legion: Daybreak Legacy proved to be an engaging and interesting follow-up to the game, as well as a great sequel to Watch Dogs Legion: Day Zero. It made me come to care about the returning characters a lot more, and left me wanting more from them. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of these characters, or this setting.”

“I particularly enjoy how each character compliments the others skills. All in all another wonderful entry to the Watch Dogs tie-in collection and I really hope there are more to come.”
– What You Tolkien About

Praise for Stewart Hotston

“If you want something that’ll offer both a thoughtful take on where we are currently heading, but with some thrills (and even a couple of heroics!) and a fast pace, then this is the novel you are looking for.”

The Middle Shelf, on Tangle’s Game


“Hotston gives us a pacey, globe-trotting narrative packed with incident and the characters are fun.”

Scifi and Scary, on Tangle’s Game

"An unflinching look at the future of humans and AI. Equal parts compelling and disturbing."
– Anna Stephens author of the Godblind saga
