Players are able to utilize the new Umbran Climax and Witch Time powers to take out hordes of angels and demons. Gamers are able to use 0ver-the-top weapons, such as the Kafka, a bow that shoots poisonous arrows; the Rakshasa, a pair of katana blades; and the Chernobog, a giant rifle-inspired scythe.
