Three buttons for victory

Basically, you need only three buttons and control knobs while Active X Battle. One button is for the attack, one for the defense and one for interactions with other group members. This may sound like a small draft, but according to the developers, the exact nature of an action should change depending on the situation.

Final Fantasy 15-06In combat you control only Noctis, but also has a lot on it.

For example, an attack out of the block is a nasty counterattack or a jump attack particularly hard. The same applies to the other key actions. Depending on what situation and with what previous action or movement you apply an action, it will work differently. This is the simple approach in the system is very complex and not a silly buttons hammers.

Tag Team Takedown

This team maneuvers are becoming more effective, the more Noctis has grown his comrades warmly. So the more the group together is growing and has experienced together, the more powerful and rehearsed them as a team.

Magic and weapons

Of course, should - not lack magic - as in all Final Fantasy parts.

Furthermore, your hero Noctis may borrow up to five weapons in his "deck". The prince then selects depending on the enemy and the situation of the right weapon. Therefore, it makes sense to make himself even before the fight thoughts that you will most likely need at expected skirmishes weapons. Especially as the weather in certain circumstances, affect the course of the fight and in some weapons and attacks triggers special effects. For example, increased fire risk in dry weather.
