NotesAccessibility Notes

The settings allow to turn off blood but that option is for gameplay only meaning the cutscenes will show blood. There is no manual save option just checkpoints that trigger an autosave. There are settings to adjust 3D Strength and Stereoscopy options (Off, Inficolor, Side by Side, and Top Bottom).

When in combat only the enemy you are focused on will be highlighted and glowing. Other enemies will have a small health bar that flashes when that enemy is going to attack. Enemies not in combat will have an icon indicating if they see you.

Objects that can be interacted with will be highlighted. Similarly, the path for some missions will have distinct indicators of where to go in the game world and on the minimap. There is no distinct indicator of what world elements can be traversed while free running.
