Soulcalibur VI Gameplay:

Like every game in the Soulcalibur series, it is set on a 3D plane where fighters battle with various weapons. Soulcalibur 6 includes a new gameplay mechanic that was not included in the earlier versions of the series called the Reversal Edge, which is like the combo breaker in Killer instinct & the Burst mechanic used in Arc System Works’ fighters. This feature allows player to guard against rival’s hit & directly strike him with a powerful hit.

Armor Break is also available in Soulcalibur 6 which is taken from Soulcalibur 4 & 5. It breaks different parts of armor, & it also affects player’s hairstyle.

One new mechanic which is available in the latest version is Lethal Hit. It is an advanced system where landing certain hits in the right condition sends the rival in the air.

Soulcalibur 6 includes 8 Way Run movement system which was also available in the earlier installments of the series. The game also includes the Ring Out mechanic which was not available in Soulcalibur: Lost Swords.
