Navigating this realm, he shall make his way back to his ultimate destination and fight against the child of the Miracle, a mysterious being threatening the land.
There will be not only new final bosses and brutal combat. Find also new enemies, skills to develop and customize and new weapons. We know indeed about three new weapons, each one with its own gameplay feature:
- The War Sensor is a powerful two-handed mace that delivers devastating blows, despite its slowness she can smash through objects and reveal hidden secrets to the player;
- The Rapier and Dagger, a weapon which can dash through mirrors and grant access to areas which would be otherwise out of reach while also offering lightning-fast attacks;
- The Preying Blade, a weapon capable of sliding and destroying objects.
These three weapons will be the key also with progressing through the game as they can be used to traverse the environment and solve puzzles.
