Here’s a rundown of all the featured highlights of the game:

  • Cinematic Main Campaign and Ample Side Content: Blue Protocol takes players on a heroic journey through Regnas, a world teetering on the brink of destruction after millennia of conflict and technology overuse. As players journey, they encounter characters who illuminate the history of Regnas and guide them as they face down powerful foes and unlock their memories. During this epic adventure, players can also explore the beautiful world and get to know the inhabitants as they complete side quests, hone their skills in different challenges, enjoy fishing, and more.
  • 5 Classes at launch: Each class has a unique set of skills that can be strengthened and modified with Skill Points, which players earn by raising their class level. As players increase a skill to its maximum level, they’ll unlock a new class ability. Players can also switch classes at any time.
    • Blade Warden: A master of both sword and shield; making it a balanced class for front-line attacks.
    • Twin Striker: Excels at short-range damage dealing, wielding two devastating axes.
    • Keen Strider: Agile, with a bow for long-range attacks and area effects; excels at weakening enemies so front-line fighters can finish them off.
    • Spell Weaver: Manipulates the elements for powerful fire, ice, and lightning attacks.
    • Foe Breaker: Wielder of a massive hammer that deals powerful blows up close and can fire a cannonball for short-range attacks.
  • Using Echoes: During combat players can summon the power of Echoes, the spiritual remnants of mystical creatures with powerful attacks, to aid them in battle.
  • Character Customization: Players create and play as their own avatar, with fully customizable features including mix-and-match outfits and accessories, hairstyles, and mounts.
  • Dynamic Multiplayer: Players can enjoy all of Blue Protocol’s story alone or with others, with group content including Fields and Dungeons for up to six players, and epic Raids for up to 30. Gameplay can also trigger rare open-world bosses that bring together players from across the map to take down for rare loot.
