How to change a character?
To change the character, you need to press LB and A.
After changing the character, look at his appearance. The brothers differ in the shape and clothing, so it is easy to recognize them.
What is the difference between the characters?
War is perfect for melee attacks. His strong and aggressive attacks deal a large amount of damage to nearby monsters.
Thanks to his knowledge, you can also stun and knock enemies backward to increase your chance of winning.
War also has more health points, making him a better fighter against large groups of enemies.
Strife is great for attacking opponents from a long distance or for finishing enemies off.
Thanks to his pistols he doesn't need to approach enemies meaning that he has a greater chance of survival.
Do the characters move in the same way?
The heroes jump and climb the same height.
However, their speed differs significantly. Strife easily bypasses obstacles and opponents. War's slow movement affects exploration negatively. He is significantly slower meaning he must fight enemies more often.
Can I change my character during combat?
Yes. Your character can be changed at any time. During battles, you need to constantly maneuver the character to defeat the enemy as fast as possible.
What happens when one character dies?
When one of the characters die, you will have to play as the other brother. The dead character will respawn in 20 seconds.
If you die in that time, the game will load the last checkpoint. The heroes will recover their lives.
