Developer quotes Edit
Special moves will be a way to move faster, dodge more or similar move-based abilities. Among the available move types are rolls, flips, charges, entering defensive modes, entering combat stances, sprinting etc. But you also access special abilities like listening, hiding in the shadows, opening doors, locks or even more. Climbing buildings will also be available, and possibly swimming.

Special moves are ways of moving quickly across the battlefield, dodging left or right, or making "heroic moves". These are accessed through special buttons on the keyboard, clicking on their icon, or by using a joypad. There will not be that many special moves, more like 10-20 at maximum level. There will also be class specific special skills like sneaking around and disarming traps which falls into the special move category.

The special moves are all about moving quickly, differently and in special ways in the world... dodging, rolling, tumbling, sprinting, etc.
