Gestures are a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls III.


Gestures are special animations the player can perform and which usually describe either an emotion, an action or an order. These gesticulations are generally used for communication between online players.

The player starts the game with several gestures already at their disposal. These can be consulted and managed by pressing the Xbox 360 - Button Back - 01 button, which will bring up a quick list of gestures ready for use, from which the player can choose one with the directional pad and activate it by pressing the action button (PlayStation - Cross - 01 / Xbox 360 - Button A - 01).

The rest of the gestures available to the player can be selected and added to the quick list by pressing the PlayStation - Triangle - 01 / Xbox 360 - Button Y - 01 button.

Additional gestures can be learned throughout the course of the game. These are usually learned from in-game characters, after performing certain actions or even after defeating certain enemies.
