The newest Remember Me video, a walkthrough narrated by creative director Jean-Maxime Moris, gives us a look at the game's complex combat system.

The newest Remember Me video, a walkthrough narrated by creative director Jean-Maxime Moris, gives us a look at the game's complex combat system.

Remember Me allows you to build your own combat moves using an interface called the Combo Lab. It may seem limiting to be restricted to only four active combos, but you have a wide variety of fighting moves called "Pressens" to choose from. The Pressens come in four varieties — Regen, Power, Cooldown, and Chain — and the ones you construct a combo with will determine the amount of damage it does, the amount of health it regenerates, and the reductions it provides to your cooldown timers.

Those cooldown timers apply to your Special Pressens, five unique abilities that prove useful against tougher enemies like shield-carrying soldiers and dangerous robots. Integrating S-Pressens and cooldown combos — with Chain Pressens to multiply the effects of Cooldown Pressens — is the only way to survive the game's most difficult battles.

Moris notes that Remember Me will automatically design combos for players who don't want to bother customizing their own. "But for those who master the system," says Moris, "the reward will be much greater."

Dontnod Entertainment's Remember Me is set for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in May 2013. Check out our Gamescom preview for more details.
