Take a look at some of the weapon arts in Dark Souls 3.


Dark Souls 3 changes the combat drastically with the addition of weapon arts, which are weapon-specific movesets that offer new powerful animations and uses up mana.

You’ve probably already seen this in trailers and older gameplay footage, and today we get to see more of it. Developer From Software hosted a livestream overnight that showed off weapon arts for three different classes, and given us an updated look at the game’s scimitar.

The scimitar seems to be the most agile and stylish of the bunch, but lacks in damage output. The area shown here is the same one from the network test.

Here’s the video, courtesy of YouTube user Rikudou. There’s even a Dragon’s Dogma-esque juggle near the end!
