In the contaminated wastelands of New York Zero, James Heller is desperately hunting down members of Blackwatch, the company behind the Blacklight virus that is infecting citizens and destroying the city.
Playing as Heller, who possesses superhuman powers after contracting a virus from Alex Mercer, you must use your skills to uncover the truth behind the conspiracy. Possibly the most important is your ability to consume others - you can absorb their intelligence, abilities, weapons and physical form in matter of seconds. Use this amazing power to get closer to your foes, slip into enemy territory unnoticed and access information and evidence.
NYZ is a huge open world packed with missions for you to complete, such as taking down key Blackwatch members, destroying technology and eliminating mutated beasts being used for experiments. Fortunately, you can sprint up buildings and walls with immense speed and effortlessly glide between rooftops, so it shouldn't take you too long to locate your next challenge. As you progress you'll be rewarded with new abilities and powers to turn you into the ultimate warrior. Prepare to grow enormous claws to slice up foes, and huge tendrils to grab and annihilate tanks and helicopters.
When hunting down a particular rival, press the L3 button on your wireless controller to activate your sonar-pulse and highlight your target. You'll also be able to see if they're being watched so you can swoop in and slay them with stealth if needs be. If you're seen, you'll be thrown into battle with huge numbers of enemy soldiers and the colossal monsters they've created. Be sure to consume some passers-by if your health is running low to regenerate your energy before finishing off the fight.
