In addition to the exploration and technology hacking of the first games, Legion lets you play as multiple people with unique skills and backgrounds. If a character dies, they are lost permanently with a new Permadeath setting.
You use these characters to explore on foot with parkour moves, in vehicles you steal, or through the city's underground system. Each mission can be tackled in different ways. An open-combat approach would use weapons. A stealth approach would use the environment to avoid detection. A hacking approach would use technology to subdue enemies.
Combat includes a mixture of gun fights - involving lethal and non-lethal fire-arms - and hand-to-hand combat moves, with enemies making use of different methods depending on how the player acts against them in combat (i.e. a guard hit with a punch will use melee attacks). Players can be pursued by enemies when escaping, including hostile drones, but can lose them by utilizing hack-able environmental objects (i.e. vents) and avoiding line of sight with pursuers.
