Gonna be honest here, from what I see in the trailer, seems like the quality of the environmental design has dropped and the cutscenes look incomplete. I'll be happy to reinstall and give it a shot, but otherwise I'm not too impressed with the presentation.
I'm under the impression that this is the jump-point into the larger story for S2, if that makes any sense... Like Venice was to Tokyo. Hence why the locations in the trailer seem smaller. It's a story-specific point that will lead to a larger area. Maybe.
