In the Lies of P demo, you’ll be coming across many a fearsome fiend in the rainy streets of Krat. Some foes, however, are more formidable than others and will require a stronger method of attack. That’s where the Fable Arts come in.

Here, we’ll be breaking down everything you need to know about Fable Arts in the game’s demo alongside the best ways for you to use them.

What are Fabel Arts in the Lies of P demo?

Fabel Arts are essentially the equivalent of a special attack in Lies of P, and more powerful than your standard stabs and slashes.

There are two varieties of Fable Arts you can use: the Blade Fable Arts and the Handle Fable Arts.

The Blade Fable Arts unleash a powerful attack, depending on the weapon you’re using, whereas the Handle Fable Arts strengthen your defence and allow you to take a few more hits than normal.

However, while these attacks are powerful, they can’t be used off the cuff. So you’re going to need to know when and how to utilise them most effectively.

To use the Blade Fable Arts in Lies of P, you simply need to press Triangle to activate them. Similarly, with the Handle Fable Arts, you press Triangle while you’re guarding to get the buff.

However, using Fable Arts comes at a price, and will use up your Fable slots. Fortunately, they can be replenished by fighting enemies and by continuously dealing damage.

And with that, you’ll be using your Fable Arts like a pro in Lies of P. Be sure to check out everything we know so far about the upcoming Lies of P right here at GGRecon.
