Nope. That's just one of the things removed from the game. It'd make sense to have it considering there's audio logs you can find in the game world with no way of currently listening to them except staring at a menu screen.

Spent the afternoon playing this. Done a mission and recruited a couple more people.

I saw a review of this and it said it was broken due to one huge benefit of certain recruits. I've tried it and it does break the game in many ways. I recruited a construction worker who can summon a cargo drone. Now I float around London and collect all the green tech points from roof tops. If they are in secure location I float down grab them and float off laughing.

If they had removed the larger drones the game would lose some amazing views but the game would be better balanced.

Still it looks fantastic and plays really well. It doesn't have any dynamic events as far as I can tell. Like GTA or Spider-Man but it does make for a more relaxing game.

It's a tourist simulation and a bloody good one.

This game is pissing me off now, twice it has lost a whole nights progress and I’ve had to do it all over again

As much as i enjoy wandering around virtual London, it's still not a patch on the real thing.

I haven't been to London since August.

I love London, I miss London, no travel and no London make Vermi go crazy.

As terrible an idea as being stuck in a glass ball for half an hour probably is, I still want to go on the real London Eye sometime. And explore more than those areas I've previously been.

The London Eye is great fun, though I personally prefer The View from the Shard, and the Sky Garden (the latter you can actually visit in Legion).

That's really unfortunate. :lol:

Also, can you not get to the top of the Shard? Seems like no drone can go above a certain height.

It's not possible as far as i know, but you can get to the top of the walkie talkie (aka the sky garden).

Unlocked two zones now and got the special recruits. The bee keeper is a great design and very unique. I really want a queen's guard, a spy, a punk rocker, a mascot and a escort Hopefuy the game delivers all of them so I can form the world's best team.

The little intros when you get a new character and the game shows off London are really well filmed.

I'm not a passive fan of the skills, as they are all boring and the open world has little to do apart from recruit or get tech points. Also I think money in the game is just for buying cosmetic stuff? Which feels odd, I want to spend it to upgrade a base of weapons or something tangible.

Trying to do the statue trophy where you have to get a 5 star alert level. Thing is I've completed the game and cleared out Albion, and it's incredibly hard to get the cops after you, any tips?

On the map hover your pointer around and it shows you the different zonesm each one has 3 red activites to complete and it'll say who it unlocks once you have all 3 done. I think the bee keeper was classed as a specialist but there are other ones like getaway driver, drone expert and spy. Do the 3 missions, it unlocks a recruitment one and get the bee keeper.

Ah cool, I've been leaving the zones and focussing on the main missions. Now I know what to do next.

I've not cleared out Albion myself, so this may not be as effective...but I got a 5 star alert level by blowing drones out of the sky and any enemy vehicles as they arrived with the spy cars targeting missiles.

Do the Albion drones disappear upon completion too?

Albion seems to disappear, a few cops about but they're a needle in a haystack to find.
