On the program are destructive weapons, melee combat, in addition to collisions and destroyed devices that do not fail to create collateral damage.

We see wacky outfits and other unusual-looking weapons and gear, which accompany us, especially in the new feature that was previously presented.

In addition to the choice of the type of business to set up, this function also influences the characters to meet during our ascent, as well as the game mechanics and the rewards obtained.
