Mission 1 – Release Walkthrough
The Game start with a cutscene where Faith Connors wakes up from a dream from the past then after a quick check from the guard Faith is set free to enter the world after 2 years of a prison cell. Once you get control of the Character Faith, you can explore the room and follow the arrow path. Instead to getting shipped to Food Drone 4 you manage to get out of the Kruger facility from the Red Door with the help of Icarus.
He claims to know Noah and he has sent him to help you escape, here you have no other choice but to trust him so simply follow him. He provides you with the beatlink that will show you the Echo and keep in touch with Noah. Get started with your tutorial for the running and jumping the walls and pipes. You will soon encounter your fight opponent who is a melee KrugerSec Guard and he can be easily taken down with two blows. Once you make it through you will meet Icarus again and he will ask you to split up again and meet him at the Warehouse.
The Combat Tutorial
Once you get used to all the jumps and running it’s time Noah will update you with the runner Echo which will show you how to vault over the Baracaids, run along the wall and slip down the pipes. Noah then updates you with the change in the World and some heavy guards patrolling the rooftop and before you take them you must learn how to use the combat. Icarus will soon update you Beatlink which shows how to beat up the KrugerSec Guards with Combat skills.
You need to follow the marker and defeat the Echo Guards with the exact same move or else you’ll have to redo the move. Once you are done with the program it’s time to test it with the real guards so Springboard through the window and get ready to face the KrugerSec Guards, you can easily take them out with the combos you just learned and don’t worry if you miss you can still take them with normal melee attacks.
