As well as the main storyline, a wealth of side missions provides chances to collect new weapons and upgrades to make Rex Colt an even deadlier Cyber Soldier.
You’re free to roam the island, engaging enemy compounds to liberate the scientists held hostage inside. Collect new weapons and capture vehicles to travel through the ravaged terrain more easily. There’s more to the island than gun-toting enemies though; the craggy cliffs and untamed undergrowth hide packs of wild cybernetic animals who watch your movements with a glowing red eye and pounce when you least expect it. You’ll be tasked with taking them out to make the island a safer place – and to win the rewards that come from these futuristic big game hunts.
With the weapons you’ll collect, you can tailor your tactics to suit each mission; need the silent and deadly approach? Grab your bow and arrow and pick off enemies without being seen. If you need to storm a base with an explosive shock and awe style hit, that’s not a problem either – the more missions you complete, the more weaponry will become available at the stores located in each compound.
And what’s the one thing more awesome than being a Cyber Soldier? Being a Ninja Cyber Soldier, of course. Take down your enemies with a stealth attack and you can follow up with a deadly shuriken to finish off anyone else lurking nearby. The more difficult kills you make, with headshots, stealth attacks and combos, the more cyber points you’ll be awarded, allowing you to upgrade your skills and armour and become an even deadlier killing machine.
