Greater emphasis on stealth and evasion not only makes it easier to avoid enemies, but also to escape from them if you've been detected. Players can now lean around corners to see what lies up ahead, disappear into hiding places from which they can safely observe enemies, and lose pursuers by outsmarting them.
Diverse locales keep players jet setting across the globe from a feudal Japanese estate to a Soviet military installation in the Siberian tundra to the exotic streets of India.
A rich, interactive environment can work for you or against you. Casually knock over a bottle and you might bring enemies to investigate. Unscrew light bulbs to create hiding places in the shadows. Leave a door open and a guard may become suspicious and decide to search the area for intruders.
An advanced AI system allows enemies to recognize everyday items within the world. Each henchman has unique goals, such as guarding a safe or unloading a truck, but their own internal urges can be triggered by objects in the area, sending them off to get a cup of coffee or sneak away for a quick nap in their favorite chair.
Overcome obstacles and adversaries with an assortment of cunning gadgets and deadly weapons. Dispatch enemies quietly with Japanese throwing stars and the Vindicator Model 6 crossbow. Decipher encoded messages with the HR-4 Ladies' Compact Code Breaker. Snap incriminating pictures with a pocket size lipstick spy camera in Tulip, Cate's favorite shade.
Remarkably clever henchmen provide plenty of challenge. Square off against devious Ninjas, Tulwar-wielding Indian assassins, and machine gun toting Soviet soldiers.
