Each class has a promotion tree that enables new abilities and mounts. The total number of classes is 54, ensuring that each playthrough will be unique. Each class comes with different proficiencies and weakness, so each decision is meaningful.
All 30 characters are fully voiced, with over 400 conversations between different members. Each of these members can bond, creating different effects during combat.
Players can equip team members with “a diverse array of hundreds of upgradable weapons and spells to gain an advantage at the edge of battle.”
Alongside these are divine and ancient artefacts that will change the abilities and destinies of those that wield them.
Dark Deity is exclusive to steam and costs £19.49. It is currently 20% off, bringing the price to £15.59.
