If you are fans of the third-person video games, 2020 will be a wonderful year for you. There will be plenty of great games that come in 2020, and the list on the third-person titles is expanding gradually.

As many newcomers might take your mind, let's bookmark this list of the best five third-person perspective games in 2020 so far!

1. Watch Dogs Legion

Supported platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia

Release date: March 6, 2020

The first one in this list is the next installment in the Watch Dogs series - Watch Dogs Legion.

The Watch Dogs series is definitely the golden goose of Ubisoft, and the developer certainly doesn't want to kill this at this moment. Instead, they are going to get more eggs from this goose. And that's why Watch Dogs Legion - the third main installment in the series is coming in 2020.

In this title, you'll explore the crowded streets of London. A new authority is taking over the United Kingdom, and DedSec's will take on a new mission. The group now will have to free the people here from the hand of this oppression.

Watch Dogs Legion features a brand new story

The story is different now, and so does the gameplay in this game. In fact, Watch Dogs Legion will bring a remarkable change when it comes to gameplay.

To be more specific, the last two titles in the series mainly lead you through the whole story through the perspective of a single character. However, in Watch Dogs Legion, you'll experience the whole picture through the viewpoint of various characters. It's called "Legion" for a reason, right!

Furthermore, there will be a cast that accompanies you and tells you the story. That cast is customizable during the campaign, which is the best of all!

Let's come back to the 'characters' part. As I've mentioned earlier, this title will put you in the shoes of a random character. From there, you can muster some civilians in the DedSec hacking group. The best demonstration for this progress is the demo footage at E3 2019. You can watch it in the video below:

Additionally, there will be a ton of civilians that you can bring in, and they'll prove their usefulness in the later campaign. And you won't have them with you forever since those characters might get killed and disappear forever. At that time, all you need is to recruit more and keep moving forward.

This third-person action-adventure game features decently flexible gameplay. You can opt to go through quests with brute force, or you could carry out a more of a stealthy approach. Another way to complete the missions is by using innovative devices to reach the goals.
