Some of the spots you can get into are wild, but there's also a lot of risks running around on rooftops and breaking into areas where there may be undead waiting for you. They also delve into the mechanics of combat as you'll explore new ways to fight people and deal with unsavory characters with everything from bare knuckles to crafted weapons.
