The next new ability shown in the gameplay video is the “Ultrahand” ability. Players will be able to fuse large objects such as tree logs and wind turbibes to create vehicles. The last new ability seen in the gameplay footage is known as the “Ascend” ability. Players will know be able to use this ability in areas that feature ceilings in order to quickly emerge above them.
