Players can follow various questlines or freely roam the world to find their own opportunities, while forming bonds between people, constructing their own village, and more.
Each of the game’s various actions, including jumping, climbing, and swimming, has its own associated level, with over 500 skills available to unlock in total. Players are also able to craft gadgets and equipment, fish, cook, brew potions, and more. Players can also use their foresight to witness events set to happen in the near future and plan their adventures and actions accordingly.
