Alongside traditional elements of gameplay from previous titles, Legion uses multiple playable characters that can be recruited and controlled at any time to complete missions. Each playable character has their own unique skills and backgrounds, and can be lost permanently if players enable the option of permadeath before starting a new game. Four-player cooperative multiplayer will also be included, allowing players to team up to complete missions or explore London together.

Watch Dogs: Legion is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective, and takes place within an open world setting based upon London, which can be explored either on foot - utilizing parkour moves - vehicles, or fast-travelling via the city's Underground stations. The game is composed of several missions, including those that progress the main story, liberation missions aimed at freeing the city's boroughs featured in the setting, recruitment missions for new playable characters, and various side-activities, with players able to freely pursue a mission or activity, or explore the city for secrets and collectables.




Combat includes a mixture of gunfights - 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 the line of sight with pursuers.

Ubisoft announced that a post-launch update on December 3 would add multiplayer to the game. A DLC pack named Bloodlines would be released for season pass owners. Bloodlines is a story pack that adds four characters, including Aiden Pearce, the protagonist of the first Watch Dogs, Wrench, a supporting character from Watch Dogs 2, a transhuman named Mina, and Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order. New characters, missions and a New Game Plus mode would also be released for free in 2021.
