Epic has released a developer diary for Infinity Blade II, which features Chair Entertainment’s Simon Hurley and Donald Mustard explaining and demonstrating the game’s new attacks.

The video, posted below, shows both dual-wielding and two-handed weapon attacks.

According to Hurley, the key to being “good” at Infinity Blade is to “really practice” the various combat moves available in the game, which weren’t present in the original Infinity Blade.

“The better you are, and the more you level up your character as you go through, the more engaging the gameplay is going to be,” he said.

This includes learning the art of parrying your enemy and being able to read or anticipate enemy attacks in order to be more successful, apparently.

Infinity Blade II releases on December 1 and will cost you $6.99.
