  • Online Battle – Up to eight players are divided into Alpha and Bravo teams and compete to cause the most damage to a boss character that populate the map. Threats come from all angles as players manage their time damaging boss character while also denying the other team from scoring points.

  • Online Cooperative Battle – Four players and their ArFA-sys support characters team up to take down the enemy boss.  Players must make use of their unique skills and carefully consider their roles as they complete their objective.
