Contraband takes the open-world style of game (like Just Cause) in a new direction where stealth and careful planning are as important as parachuting in and killing enemies. There's a campaign mode alongside the multiplayer cooperative elements.
It has a focus on vehicles rather than weapons, both for the operation of each heist as well as the getaway. Here it draws on games like Fast and Furious. You will be able to upgrade and develop your vehicle to be equipped for upcoming missions - River Valley, Highlands, Coastline, and Pirate Towers.
Progressing will involve not only having a beefy well-equipped vehicle, but using the landscape, mechanics and game physics to get to the target and then get away with it safely stowed.
