When it comes to the theme of parkour, which game will you immediately think of? Assassin’s Creed? Dying Light? Or Sleeping Dogs?

Not really in depth. However, what makes the game special is not the plot element but the graphics and gameplay, which I am about to praise, but we will learn about it in the next article. Bye
