Controls for Salt and Sanctuary are shown below.

The controls are rather intuitive and simple to follow.

PS4 Controls:

PC Controls:

 Default PC Key Mapping

Additional Controls:

  • Holding R2 (default) while descending a ladder will allow your character to slide down the ladder.
  • To parry, press Square (Attack) while holding L2 (Blocking). When parry is successful a red Circle icon will appear infront of the enemy, press Circle before it dissapears to deal major damage.
  • Press X and R2 to perform a longer jump, use joystick in direction to jump even further.  Be careful, if you don't do this correctly, it is easy to accidentally roll off a ledge!
  • Circle (O) opens secret doors.

Gameplay Tips:

  • Practice dodge rolling with the R2 to take advantage of invincibility frames similar to the Dark Souls franchise.
  • Using your Creed's health restore item is a very quick animation, don't hesitate to use it during an intense fight.
  • You are able to jump and stay mid-air for as long as you are attacking which can create new combat strategies.

  2. Accesibility

      I reassigned controls so it's like Dark Souls. I don't get why it's not like that by default.
      Y to switch loadout, L1 to block, Rb light attack, Rt heavy attack, O to roll, X to use estus

      I kept A for jumping and put action on L2.

        Was really that hard to include an option to customize the controls the way the player wants it WITHOUT needing to change the mapping of the controls itself from the setting?? There needs to be a patch about this. Highly unacceptable.

          Intuitive to Souls Players?15 Mar 2016 15:23  

          The controls may be simple to follow and but controller layout is different from the Souls games and therefore not intuitive to Souls players.

            Is there a way I don't know about to remap the controls? I prefer using the d-pad for side scrollers.
