In Live by the Sword the characters are the same strength at the start of the game as they are at the end. You are the one who gets better.
No equipment means you cannot brute force your way past an encounter by farming over and over for one specific piece.
Engage in multiplayer with a friend or a random opponent online. Battles can be 3v3 or 5v5.
Choose from a pool of abilities when placing a character. At the moment you can choose from 6 but in the December update we are adding 2 new ones to every class.
Starting in December we will be releasing content updates that add new game modes, new characters, new abilities/traits and more to the game. Adventure Mode will see the majority of updates.
