Military Advisor and Motion Artist Introduced
Biddiss is the military advisor and action coordinator for several movies and TV shows in the past. He offered his expertise to the game development team as well as their motion capture artist for Karl Fairburne. This gives the game the highest possible level of authenticity to Karl’s takedowns and movements. Paul said, “All the takedowns are realistic to the training that was given to SOE operatives… everything is realistic. There is no embellishment.”
The video shows the details of the other stealthy options open to Karl, which includes the new traversal mechanics. This can now open up hidden areas of other maps as well as give player other routers that he can approach their objectives. Players also have to consider the audible distance of both their weapon and ammo when taking a shot if they want to remain undetected.
