Combat Gameplay


When engaged in close combat, press RB to perform light attack and RT for a heavy attack.

Light attacks are fast and deal moderate damage. Heavy attacks are slower but deal more damage and can break the defense of your opponnet.

Well-timed dodges allow you to avoid damage and reposition yourself during a fight. Quickly press X to dodge or hold X to roll.



Dodging or blocking enemy attacks with your shield and performing unsuccessful heavy, special, and light attacks consumes stamina. 

When at low stamina, you won't be able to perform dodge or protect yourself with shield, so all incoming hits you missed will inflict damage to your health. 

Stamina regenerates automatically over time, but successful light attacks replenish it faster. Using Abilities regenerates all your stamina.


Dual Wielding

You can assign any type of melee weapon both to your main and secondary hand in the Inventory menu. Use LB to perfom an attack with your secondary weapon.

Wielding two weapons allows you to perform special attacks by holding LB and depletes stamina. The attack style will vary according to what you choose, so try different combinations.

Shields equipped in your main hand will be used as the main source of damage and your fighting style, so you won't be able to use them for defense.

In order to wield a two-handed weapon in each hand you will need the skill: Heavy Dual Wield



You need a full adrenaline token at launch an Ability. You can build up adrenaline by landing hits, successfully dodging, parrying enemy attacks, and performing kills.
