More Details On Combat Mechanics

Closest Enemy Will Challenge You On Standoff

When you initiate a stand off, the enemy closest to you will take part in the standoff. The challenging enemy can even be a Mongol Leader.

Hold △ And Release When Enemy Attacks

Hold △ And Release When Enemy Attacks

Once your stand off starts, hold the △ button until your enemy swings in for an attack. Releasing any earlier or later may result in you failing the stand off and being critically wounded. The enemy may also throw a feint to throw your timing off.

Push △ For Standoff Streak

Once you have a Chain Stand Off technique unlocked, up to 2 more enemies will jump in after your initial stand off. Tap your △ as they close in to kill the assaulter. Take note that you do not need to hold you △ down for the Standoff Streak.
