Watch Dogs: Legion gets bizarre gameplay from Gamescom 2019, features old heroes who randomly die on missions

What you need to know

  • Watch Dogs: Legion lets you play as anyone.
  • One of the characters you can play as, an old man, can die at any moment.
  • Watch Dogs: Legion releases on March 6, 2019.

Remember when E3 gave us a gun-wielding grandma from Watch Dogs: Legion? She's not your average grandma, she's a cool grandma. And now a new challenger approaches for new favorite character: a grandpa that can keel over and die at any moment. Seriously. Ypu can be strolling along going about your day and he'll randomly die.

There were other interesting parts of its latest gameplay trailer shown off at Gamescom 2019 explaining the ability to play as anyone — and each character has their own strengths and weaknesses — but honestly how can you top that moment? You can't.

Watch Dogs: Legion takes the fight to London in a post-Brexit world on March 6, 2020 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia. You can preorder it today.
