The free-to-play third-person MMORPG, Skyforge, announced today that there will be character profiles added in game with the next big update. Allods Team and Obsidian Entertainment told players that “it is just as important” to have information on your allies as it is your enemies, and thus the addition of character profiles is essential.
According to developers, the character profiles will showcase plenty of information about their equipment, symbols, and adepts. Players can access a character’s profile by hovering over the desired character in-game and press the default key of G. This will then bring up the radial menu where you can then select the “Character Info” option.
Players can also find character profiles through the game chat and Pantheon screens by simply right clicking a hero and selecting “Character Info.” The character profile is a very basic-looking screen with all the necessary information readily available for anyone looking at it.
The developers urge players to “use the knowledge gained wisely.” In MMOs, this is an extremely helpful feature for a multitude of reasons. Anyone looking to recruit an ally during a boss battle or raid would want to see what sort of build the character in question has. A more experienced player could also very easily see what kind of gear a newer player has and perhaps help them get something better.
On Steam, Skyforge has some mixed reviews, but as a free-to-play title, there is definitely a strong fan base behind it. These character profiles are just one item in a long list of additions to the game. Obsidian and Allod Team are constantly trying to add in features to improve upon the player experience.
