This time around combat will be handled differently, emphasizing on one-on-one sword fighting as opposed to slaying swarms of enemies. The game was described being more like Soul Calibur than God of War.

Taking a page from Assassin's Creed, the game will be a mix of open ended exploration and linear missions.

The challenges themselves will basically be linear assault courses, emphasizing fluidity of combat and acrobatics, leading up to a boss confrontation.
