Stealth has a new look in gaming! Guard blocking your way? The player can throw stones to distract the hostile while he proceeds with the mission. Hiding in the bushes helps to lose the heat when the enemies are after you. You’ve got a camera! what for? Mark your enemies, track their movement and show them who’s boss. Also, silenced weapons make sure that when you kill a guard at a distance, the others won’t come to know. Have to get up-close and personal, use the silent takedown and then hide the body where guards may not notice. Alarms can be disabled in outposts and even if you are spotted, the enemies won’t be able to call for backup.
