Players can select one of 4 different heroes to play, each of which has their own distinct capabilities based on their class: Assassin, Warrior, Specialist or Support. Each class takes skill to master, thanks to a fast console-style control mechanic which unlocks character-specific abilities and traits. Killsquad’s class system means players have access to plenty of upgradeable gear and design options to completely customize their chosen character including their appearance with character skins. With a variety of different weapons and contracts to unlock and equipment to acquire, players have a seemingly endless selection of options to utilize in a deadly universe that’s always active.
Powerful attack skills specific to each character class can also be acquired to employ against the more deadly enemies or boss encounters along the way. Defeated enemies will drop useful resources, currency and DNA, which can be used to buy better weapons and gear in the game shop, as well as buying perks to upgrade them.
Novarama has big plans in store for Killsquad with much more content planned for the game later this year including revealing more details on a proposed console version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
