Quick-Time Events (or QTEs) are a gameplay mechanic featured in the Lords of Shadow franchise. These involve the player pressing a certain combination of key presses in an animation-driven sequence. Most QTEs occur after a boss battle. However, the player can choose to play the entire-game with the QTEs automatically executed via the Game Options.
There are two types of QTEs in the reboot franchise; the first is a typical button-mashing, while the second forces the player to time a certain key press with the graphical aid of a circle. A successful QTE either guarantees a kill, or triggers the next phase in a boss battle. Otherwise a failed QTE will have the player character damaged, and the enemy having its s restoring to a certain percentage.
Now that Dracula himself is the playable character. He can grab any enemy having a critical amount of health. During this QTE sequence, the player must press the grab button again when the circle glows yellow in order for Dracula to finish the enemy by consuming it, healing him in the process.
