The mobile action RPG Guild of Guardians will have its combat influenced by four key components: your squad, strategy, the actual combat and enemy actions. Every player will have multiple heroes, most likely four, when going into a dungeon, but controls only one. In a blog post the developers at Stepico revealed some of those details, which are – of course – subject to change.
Guild of Guardians will offer a singleplayer campaign in which you control a team of heroes. Most likely there will be four heroes in each squad, but players only control one at the time. The others are controlled by the computer. Most likely players can switch their characters, but they didn’t elaborate on this topic much.
Even though the game features singleplayer, it’s promoted a lot as a cooperative game. In co-op raids players can work together, using their own characters, to beat a single boss. These will have the best loot. Guild raids require coordination to succeed and for example the power level or class of a character can influence the outcome. Each participants in a successful raid is rewarded, and therefore communication and strategy can be considered key.
Based on your team, some monsters are easier to beat than others. The composition of a team is important to counter passive buffs, debuffs and spells. While player buffs can also help team members to overcome challenges. There are also team buffs, for example by having a group of characters from the same class. While combat itself will be inspired by Diablo, Hades and other popular dungeon crawlers. Dodging, light and heavy attacks, attack combos, and ultimate attacks need to make combat fun and intuitive.
