Age of Wushu 2 Combat System Features Elements of Street Fighter Series
As Snail Games kicks off pre-registration for Age of Wushu 2, they reveal more gameplay details of the sandbox survival MMO. Many players are curious of how the combat system is like, and they can expect a Street Fighter style of combo system that requires you to know (or remember) the keys and buttons to make each move and combo.
Pressing the 1, 2, 3, 4 number keys aren't going to work in Age of Wushu 2, the developer says. Each combo is triggered by a combination of different buttons. Even each attack has "light" and "heavy" modes. Combining together the "light" and "heavy" modes, kick and fist, and different types of weapons, you can play a lot of different kung fu.
The combat system is optimized for gamepad control and if you in case have one, you should use it for PK.
Players who aren't good at close quarter combat can pick up ranged weapons such as bows, bolas, and concealed weapons. There are over 10 ranged weapons and they can be coated with poisons. Playing with ranged weapon can remind you of playing FPS games and it certainly costs "ammos".
Similar to Age of Wushu, there are internal skills (or inner skills) in Age of Wushu 2 as well. In AOW2, there are 5 types of internal skills, each of which is linked to one of the 5 elements: gold, wood, water, fire, and earth. To practice and improve a particular type of skill, you have to find the right environment. For instance, if you want to practice wood related internal skills you have to do it in a wooden hut or a Blessed Location related to wood. In the alpha zone Jiangnan, there will be 5 Blessed Locations players can discover. The developer warns that since everyone is looking for the Blessed Locations, those places are where PK will frequently take place.
