Players who take the role of the evil god Hiruko cannot interact directly with the physical realm but can possess the many beasts that lurk on the island. However, if the survivors are close to making their escape, she is able to transform into a powered-up state where she can physically attack her victims assuming direct control.
Hiruko also has access to other mischievous tricks like mimicking other survivors to catch them off, guard. Survivors will have to be cautious of their surroundings and be careful of their own buddies lest they find themselves in for a surprise by the hunter.
On the other hand, players taking the roles of the Survivors will have to interact with special devices dotted around the map to unlock barriers that bar their exit. Along the way, they may access weapons and items to assist their attempts at freedom. The survivor is also assigned a class and skill that makes each unique. Some of the classes include Attacker, Medic, Scout, Engineer, and All-Rounder.
