The difficulty level you choose doesn’t matter in this as whatever level you are on you can have your permadeath turned on or off.
Watch Dogs Legion has brought in an interesting feature. Your character regardless of who are you playing can die permanently.
And to cater to the discouraging mood you get into, the directors have decided to make permadeath totally optional as you can enable it or disable at whatever level(easy, difficult, hard) you are playing on.
“Difficulty and Permadeath are separate options,” Hocking said. “You can play in Easy, Normal, or Hard, and you can play with Permadeath on or off in any difficulty.”
Additionally, Hocking also stated that multiplayer mode won’t feature permadeath.
Stay tuned for more confirmed news about Watch Dogs Legion that’s all set to launch on October 29th on PC, Xbox, Stadia, and PS4.
