We were treated to "Blood Trail," a mission that capitalizes on the superpowers of Cole, our hero. Cole survived a devastating explosion that left thousands dead and him with a supernatural ability to control electricity. In "Blood Trail," these superpowers allow Cole to follow a "ghost" of previous events by reading the electrodes off an NPC's brain. For example, if a man was murdered, Cole can recall that man's previous actions and follow his ghastly silhouette to unravel the mystery."
