On top of that, three new paths will be unlocked, and you can choose one depending on your playstyle.

Path of the Serpent

You gameplay features an emphasis on stealth and subterfuge. Take down your foes one by one, using sound and decoys to sow chaos among their ranks. Mud and camoflague lets you lash out your foes before slipping back into the shadows.

Path of the Jaguar

Your gameplay features an emphasis on hunting and combat. Strike down your enemies with an unrivaled ferocity. Your agility and close-ranged prowess tear through your enemies with knife takedowns.

Path of the Eagle

Each path will unlock a variety of rewards that will further aid your chosen playstyle, and that won’t be available in any other way. They will also include mastery skills like “Jaguar Rage” or “Eagle Sight,” and specific weapons and outfits.
