E3 2019 Watch Dogs Legion Won't Feature Any Dogs Because Then You'd Have to Play as Them
A real shame
Watch Dogs Legion's 'play as anyone' mechanic is certainly an ambitious one, but it turns out the feature only goes so far. The buck stops with our canine friends, who won't be playable in the game.
