Test out the combat system

Soul Calibur has a legacy type of gameplay which means if you have played any of their previous titles, it will feel rather natural. But, they did implement certain new features. With this beta test, you can test them out before the game comes out.
Check out the controller layout to get yourself prepared.

The new features to bear in mind would be the Reversal Edge and Gauge attacks. Reversal Edge acts as a counter or parry that sends you into a rock-paper-scissors situation. More information can be seen in the image below.

Regarding the Gauge attacks – it acts as a special move that the character unleashes in the game. You have the Soul Charge and Critical Edge. The Soul Charge increases your attack power and even lets you damage your opponent even while they block. It even lets you stop the clock – so waiting for the time to run out might be a bad idea. Furthermore, certain characters will unlock hidden moves when using Soul Charge.
Critical Edge, on the other hand, acts as a super or finisher. Using this will unleash a devastating attack on your opponent. Certain characters in the game might have more than just one type of Critical Edge.
