Watch Dogs Legion is the next title in the Watch Dogs franchise and the game offers the play as anyone feature which we have not seen in any other game. The devs talked about this feature and how it allows Watch Dogs Legion to have a lot of potential replayability.
The game also has a permadeath feature. Once a character dies, he or she cannot be brought back. With that in mind, you need to be very careful when it comes to your actions in the game. Art director Josh Cook talked about the replayability of Watch Dogs Legion and here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Something else within that city that maybe people really don’t know about know about is the locations are recastable. To make a complex system like play as anyone work, we have to have that opportunity to return to different places and do different things; so you might see the E3 demo, where you’re sent to Scotland Yard to perform an objective.
He mentioned that if the same mission was done with another character then the location could be different as well. So not only can you play as anyone in the game but the location of missions change depending on the character that you have selected. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter:
If I was to do that mission again with a different person, it might be sending me somewhere else. It might be sending me to Camden police station, or down to the one in Nine Elms or over to MI6. The locations and the world are very diverse and recastable, so we have a huge amount of potential for replayability within our version of London.
All this is very interesting indeed. If this is true then the replayability of Watch Dogs Legion will be very impressive indeed and I am sure that players will be able to spend hundreds of hours in the world trying out different characters. That is great keeping in mind that this is, in fact, is a single-player game. Single-player games are often very linear and you do not really want to go over one once you have finished it. That might not be the case with Watch Dogs Legion.
Let us know what you think about Watch Dogs Legion and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out on March 6, 2020.
