So can someone teach me how melee works?

10 replies 313 views Edited Apr 8, 2013
Does anybody know how fighting works in this game? What buttons you press? The reason why I ask is because the game puts you into different combat animations depending on the environment so I want to know what are you doing with the buttons while that is happening? And what if you don't want to fight?

Can an enemy just drag you into an animation?

Is there a counter button?

Can enemies break your animation?

Can you get hurt during your animation?

Anyone know anything?

Does anybody know anything?

Forgot people had played the demo. Edited my original post for amusement.

Hmm well, do we have anyone who played the demo on here?

I think there was a melee tutorial of sorts in the strings Fadi and AKyemeni posted, but I think all that stuff got deleted.
