Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty controls aren’t too much different than what you’d expect from Team Ninja’s Nioh games. You’ll attack with the face or mouse buttons depending on your input device, and aiming weapons is pretty much the same. There are, however, some essential button and binding combinations that you’ll need to know about to make it through this crushing yet rewarding Soulslike.

Indeed, this Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty controls list will help be your companion guide when first coming to grips with the game or when you need to remember a combination on the fly without having to pause the game and bring up the inputs menu. Perhaps you’re trying to beat the tough-as-nails first boss or playing in multiplayer and just don’t want to take a break.

Whatever the reason, these are the default inputs and keybindings for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Series X|S.
