There're some new details on the RA website about the items, skills and other stuff you'll find in the game.
Jessica Parker is the only charakter that ist able to enter the
Cyberspace. And because she is a hacker, she has only a few minutes or
seconds to reach her goal (e.g. to download secret documents or hack
into bank accounts). While she is in Cyberspace, anti-hacker software
will try to eliminate her, so be careful.
Cyberspace also offers a second very important resource, nodal points.
With these points, Jessica is able to control special machines in the
real life (i.e. an automatic machine gun.) Note: Nodal points can be
only use for the current mission.
The last kind of special resources of the Cyberspace are secret
blueprints, which allow Jessica to build various modification into her
weapons and cyberware.
That sounds kind of interesting.
