In this episode, the developers from Piranha Bytes discuss the different fighting options in the game and explain:
– how fighting is just one of the options allowing players to progress in the game, and how avoiding the fight can solve quests too
– different fighting styles available – allowing players to utilize blades, firearms and voodoo
– how much swashbuckling swordfights from classic pirate movies influenced the fighting styles in the game
– how dirty tricks, such as parrot distractions or sand throwing, complement the ‘pirate way of fighting’ and create unique variations in fighting styles
