In addition to introducing the game’s story, characters, and locations, the trailer highlights the brand-new State Combo system. The State Combo system "offers players a wide selection of options during attacks. Flow Attacks create move-set combos that differ depending on the enemy’s position and seamlessly continue when enemies become prone, are in mid-air, or stunned."

"Reactive Attacks are extremely versatile and can range from counterattacks, dash attacks, assaults, to guard breaks and finish moves. Trigger Attacks are powerful moves that change an enemy's state. Attacks will change depending on the combination of buttons pressed" says the press release.

There's even a new character, Xu Sheng, a young, charismatic ruffian/general of the kingdom of Wu. Serving as a military general of Sun Quan, he played a key role in the battles at Chibi, Hefei, and the in the invasion of Jing. He was known for his "fake towers" ruse which caused Cao Pi to retreat believing Sun Quan knew of his attack and had the city heavily fortified beforehand.
