Death End Re;Quest 2 Combat Mechanics Detailed

Those familiar with Death End Re;Quest, which is readily available for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, will already be acquainted with the combat systems with its sequel, Death End Re;Quest 2; however for those unfamiliar with these systems then Idea Factory International have provided a breakdown on what to expect.

A breakdown of each key combat (gameplay) element within Death End Re;Quest 2 can be found below:

Turn Based Combat:
This game uses a turn-based command battle system. The order of turns is determined by each character’s speed. At the start of each character’s turn, they are able to move about freely on the field.You can choose to perform combos with your character, or attack from outside the enemy’s range to keep them safe.

Triact System:
The Triact system allows players to take three actions in one turn. Actions include “Attack”, “Item”, “Guard” and “Skill”. Selecting multiple of the same action can compound effects. For example, choosing “Attack, Guard, Guard” commands an attack and a strengthened guard, allowing you to strategize the potency of your skills.

Knockback System:
When using either “Action” or “Command”, some attacks within the Triact can initiate a “Knockback”, which blasts your enemies across the battlefield. Knockbacks damage enemies, while also damaging “Field Bugs” – tiny glitches lurking around the battlefield that carry negative effects. If you blast an enemy monster into another, both receive additional damage. If an enemy is knocked into an ally, she may perform the “Knockblow” action, which allows her to strike the incoming foe for a devastating combo.

Glitch Mode:
Enhance your abilities to a mortifying degree with Glitch Mode. When Mai and the others step over Field Bugs or take damage, they will accumulate corruption. Once corruption surpasses a certain threshold, the character enters Glitch Mode. Each character has special skill that only can be used while in Glitch Mode.

Flash Drive:
The Flash Drive system allows characters to perform unique skills that initiate only when a certain skill combination is performed in the Triact. Each character has a variety of skills at their disposal, but some are only discoverable by performing them with the Flash Drive system. Experiment with skill combinations to complete all skill sets!

Field Bugs:
Creatures known as Field Bugs may appear on-screen. Coming into contact with them can harm or help your party members, as well as increase their Corruption Level.

Death End Re;Quest 2 will be released on the 28th August 2020 for the PlayStation 4 within Europe and worldwide on STEAM (for Windows PC) on the 25th August 2020.
