    Photo Mode

    Due to popular demand, we’ve decided to implement a Photo Mode! This feature will be available in single-player game mode, and you will be able to launch it in most situations. Still, due to the complex parkour mechanics, it might be unavailable in some action sequences or poses.


    • Multiple camera manipulation options, including aperture, focus distance, zoom, and roll, will help you create dynamic screenshots.

    Color adjustments such as temperature, exposure, saturation, contrast, and vignette, with the addition of filters, will make each photo just beaming with climate and style.

    • Special Effects will allow you to create unique sequences straight from the action movies.
