Everyone’s got their own opinions about Souls-like games having a pause button. Well, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty does have one, and it functions as the game’s Photo Mode feature. Here’s our mini-guide to help you use Photo Mode in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.
How to use Photo Mode in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty
To use Photo Mode in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, you can press the “P” key by default (for PC players). For those using a gamepad, the default should be R1/RB + start. However, because R1/RB is also used to activate your Martial Arts skill, this can lead to an instance where the action wheel will pop up instead.
In any case, here are some examples of the Photo Mode functions in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty:
- Camera tilt/roll
- Field of view
- Depth of field
- Lighting – This allows you to add multiple light sources in the area, illuminating your character or a particular section of the screen. You may also move the light sources around.
- Frames and stickers – Allows you to add different frames, text, and logos to the image.
- Character controls – For the most part, you can hide objects like your melee weapon, ranged weapon, helmet, and even blood spatters. There are also a few facial expressions that you can select for your character. Likewise, line of sight refers to where your character is looking.
- Shortcut settings – You can change the Photo Mode activation keybind shortcut depending on your control scheme.
Last but not least, Photo Mode in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty not only acts as a pause button, but it also lets you forward the scene frame by frame. In effect, if an enemy is charging at you and you activate Photo Mode, advancing the frame shows you how they’ll move or attack.
