What's more, you can walk up to characters now and talk to them. There's cinematic dialogue, voice acting, choice and consequence. And with this new RPG presentation comes a greater focus on the role-playing elements in the game. Yes, there's a whole story about a Blight and you'll have to stop it, but the more interesting part is how? And the 'how?' is determined by the Ideal you align with. This is a major new system. There are four Ideals - Order and Anarchy, Power and Finesse - and everything in the world is aligned to them.
