On the occasion of the debut of Watch Dogs: Legion set for October 29, IGN has released a new video showing the first fourteen minutes of the story, from the opening movie to the first fight as a member of the DedSec. Furthermore, all the details on the permadeath mode have been revealed today.
Below you can look at the gameplay section in question, recorded on PC with a resolution at 1440p (2K), 60 fps, and active Ray tracing. The game will run on next-gen consoles with relatively similar settings.
As for the permadeath mode, this will be activated and deactivated through the settings, but it will not be activated a second time during the game. This means that if, after activating it, you regret your choice, you can only deactivate it permanently.
With permadeath mode active, any characters on your team killed in action will be completely removed from the game, while all operators’ death will lead to game over. Instead of a simple screen, the game over will lead to a sort of “alternate ending,” complete with credits and thanks to the fallen operators.
Watch Dogs: Legion will be available from October 29 on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia, and from launch day on both next-gen consoles.
