Fighting just got a lot cooler.

2. The Guard Break

Her guard has just broken; the stun is soon to come.

Also new to the series is a guard break system. Now, when you are on the defensive, you have two options. You can retreat to the corner and probably die… or you can block. Street Fighter V puts a timer on how long you can defend yourself from your opponent's attack before being forced to strike back.

As you take attacks while blocking, the Guard Break meter will slowly deplete. If it fully depletes, then the player will be temporarily stunned, giving your opponent a serious advantage.
