The upcoming dystopian blockbuster Watch Dogs Legion is set to take the world by storm in 2020, and so far has impressed us thoroughly with its killer grandma gameplay back at E3 2019.
Another reason to be excited about this game is the fact that Ubisoft will be teaming up (again) with HitRecord, the online creative platform founded by none other than Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
HitRecord is a community-based online creative studio that allows people from all over the globe to express their creativity, be it making music, making films or even writing books and comics. Their creations are then published on HitRecord, where others can chip in creatively, adding lyrics, beats, colours and so on to add more depth to the original piece.
Ubisoft has commissioned 10 pieces of original music made entirely by fans via HitRecord, all of which will be a part of Watch Dogs Legion‘s original soundtrack when it releases. HitRecord will then fund about US$2,000 per song, split among the selected song’s contributors, as well as have their full names credited into the game.
If anyone has a penchant for music and would like nothing more than to score for a video game, this may be their golden ticket to such an opportunity.
This isn’t the first time Ubisoft has partnered with JGL and HitRecord, though; they first struck up a partnership back in 2018, where they commissioned original music for their other upcoming title Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Watch Dogs Legion takes centre stage on March 6, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
