Master x Master details the game’s tag system

Tagtacular.

No matter how many different characters you have unlocked in a given MOBA, you’re usually stuck bringing just one of them into battle with you. Master x Master, by contrast, does not share that restriction. It actively rejects it, even; you need to bring two separate masters into battle as part of the game’s tag system. If you’re in the middle of a match and you need another character, you just tag one out and tag the other in.

Some enemies in PvE encounters might be vulnerable to one character and not another, some PvP matches might require more diversity, and sometimes you might just want to swap masters to avoid death. The game lets you pick out your personal team configuration to handle any and all of the above. You can check out a trailer explaining the game as a whole just below, or you can take a gander at our hands-on from yesterday as well.

Interesting, it could pan out really cool being that you can combo with yourself – but I can also see it just being a feature that’s there, but doesn’t really help or hurt the game, it just kind of exists but doesn’t need to.

This is really starting to look quite interesting. I like the features I’m seeing. I like the pve part that will give me the opportunity to get learn a character before I take them into pvp game play. The swap is an awesome mechanic as well as the WSD controls.  Could potentially turn me into a MOBA player instead of the occasional dabbling that I currently do.

Checked steparu’s videos. Looks like there is 13 seconds cd before you can swap between characters again. Its probably for balance but imo if we could swap between characters any time would be so much better
