You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the Empress. Framed for her murder and driven by revenge, you must become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. As you navigate a world torn apart by plague and oppressed by a government armed with strange new technologies, the truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city. The choices you make will determine the fate of the world-but no matter what happens, your old life is gone forever.
- Approach your targets with precise first-person control and eliminate them with your own ruthless strategy-with numerous powers and tools at your disposal, each encounter plays out based on hundreds of factors
- Battle your way through an industrial retro-future world and exact fierce revenge, or move like a ghost and resist corruption-the way you play and who you decide to execute (or spare) will ultimately determine the fate of the country
- Stalk through the decaying city streets of a plague-infested whaling city where half of the population is dead or dying and the other half live in fear of an oppressive regime
- Make use of the dark arts to surprise and assassinate your enemies-teleport from rooftop to windowsill for stealth approaches, or bend time itself to orchestrate unearthly executions
