In the beginning of the game, players create their custom characters and choose from four classes. Each of these classes has unique abilities that the players can utilize. The four classes are:
- The Trickster, which has the ability to manipulate time
- The Pyromancer, which can manipulate fire
- The Devastator, which can unleash seismic attacks
- The Technomancer, an artillery platform in human form. (I think this one has lots of KaBOOM)!
These special skills have a short cooldown time and can be combined with other skills for maximum effects. The game features a skill tree that allows players to unlock and upgrade their skills.

You can use different weapons such as shotguns and assault rifles to defeat enemies, and firearms can be customized with weapon mods.
Players can hide behind cover to shield themselves from enemy attacks. In a twist to other games, your health will only regenerate if the you manage to hurt or kill enemies.
You will find yourself combating both monsters and human enemies. As you progress, the world level (the game’s equivalent to gameplay difficulty) will increase. If the world level is high, it is more likely that you will get high-end loot dropped by defeated enemies.
The game incorporates various role-playing elements. As the players explore, they will uncover different hub areas, talk to non-playable characters and complete side missions. In cutscenes a dialogue tree allows you to decide the outcome of some conversations, although it does not affect the story’s progression. The game can be played solo, but you can also complete the game together with two other players.
It is set to be released on February 2, 2021 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S. It will also released on Stadia later in 2021
