Players also can control Aiden and use his abilities to pass through walls, manipulate objects, possess characters and other assorted talents. Often you're free to switch between Jodie and Aiden, though at times you're locked into one or the other. A second player can also join your game and control Aiden with either a controller or a touchscreen-enabled device through the Beyond Touch app.
