The title will revamp the gameplay of the series with the introduction of the open world system. A traversable map of China will be implemented, though the game will focus on livable environments such as cities and towns as well as places where large battles take place. The characters’ moveset combinations are also planned to be revised.
Players can invade and infiltrate enemy fortifications with the utilization of a grappling hook. Time and weather now change in real time, and enemy vision is affected at nighttime or when it is raining. The map will advance in time when main story missions are completed, but are described as having a “high degree of difficulty” which can be lowered by completing associated side missions.
