Tactical Sword Fighting
There are no unlockable advantages in Blade Symphony. All unlockables are cosmetic. You care about proving your skill and so should your game.

Every attack has openings that are determined in real-time and efficacy is entirely up to you. Did you start an attack too early? Turn away and end the attack in a safe location. Did your opponent stupidly use a lighter stance? Go in and punish him! By switching stances mid-combo you can chain attacks into your own flurry of death.



The fighting system is open for your exploration, you can dash, jump, do an air attack, land, swing sideways with a heavy stance, parry with a light stance, and then roll away.

Every attack flows from your blade in true three dimensional space. As does your opponents! Swords collide in mid-air and you will need good timing and aim to defeat your opponent.Advanced Character CustomizationCustomize your character with skins, masks, swords, and multiple attachments streamed directly from Steam Workshop.
Fight as a TeamPlay in the new Control Points game mode and participate in team-based sword fighting.

Blade Symphony reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
very tactical game, hard grip, little game mode is a kind of free ARENE to fight, no ranking or goals just beating his opponent but without having any rewards. 4 characters with the posibility to unlock others (paying) and many weapons with their carateristics and own styles (other paying are possible) otherwise for the moment I put it on one side to see how it will continue in the dev

"Does the invasion of multiplayer games only make a new victim? Let's wait and see. Blade Symphony still has a nice gameplay to put forward (we will never say enough) and with the good updates, it could well come out of the lot. In this State, however, it is difficult to convince and we can only reek in front of this tutorial forgetting to explain some actions (while specifying that the continuation of the training will arrive in the form of updates). Blade Symphony is clearly out too early (but not to fall into oblivion?) of the early access catalogue and we really pray that it will get out without too much damage...

Gameplay both excellent and a little rusty? Before anything else, I write this review after less than an hour of play. These are my first impressions. If I play again, I will update this review (probable). Already, FPS or TPS games to integrate interesting combat phases are rare. Here the game is a set of sword fights. Roulades, dash and especially customisable combos made by personable characters with a customizable weapon. It's a dream. We can almost talk about several gameplays because the styles are very varied. Unfortunately, we still feel that the mechanics are a little rusty. This is the kind of argument that is difficult to move forward because it is a series of little things that disturb a little, like the length of the jumps, the small bugs at the reception of the wallruns. Since I am a super boring player who hates coercion, I hesitated to make a refund. Then I remembered that the game costs almost nothing, that it is fun and that we feel that the work of ideation of the developers (especially on the system of combos), the variation of styles etc. feels the hard work but the lack of means. To encourage you, I keep the game and I will play again (because it is well eh:p), I hope one day we will have an update to make the mechanics of play more fluid. Summary: 6/10. A little rusty but very original and fun all the same. I would rather recommend. (especially with such an honest price)
