There are many ways players will be able to take on objectives with these two different characters who share the same common destiny as they enter a new era in Japan.

Build your own spy network to discover new areas; ally with those who have highly specialized skills and abilities and take them on your own missions; hunt down targets and create your own customizable hideout to enhance your network and train new crew members.
