The video features Gaute Godager, Andrew Griffin, and Evan Michaels from the AoC team. We are told about the importance of weapon swings hitting multiple enemies at once, and how choosing between weapons will be more than just comparing damage, seeing as they will likely have different swinging arcs. The game's shielding and directional attacking features are also discussed, as well as knockbacks and other combos.
Of course, there's a lot of fan service (read: decapitations) too, so there's something for everyone. We're not too sure if the video features the new ground textures or not, but it all looks pretty nice. And bloody. Get a feel for the visceral combat by downloading the video diary here.
