As mentioned above, The First Descendant is a looter-shooter where you play as Descendants, each with unique skills and passive abilities that favor different playstyles. It’s a PvE-only co-op experience that features a narrative-focus campaign, multiple open-world activities, and a sprawling endgame.

Like Destiny 2 and Warframe, The First Descendant puts much emphasis on buildcrafting, with resource and gear farming being a vital aspect of the gameplay experience.

It remains unclear as to how intricate and time-consuming buildcrafting will be in The First Descendant, but if the recent open beta is any indication, expect to spend plenty of time grinding for in-game resources and materials to build your ideal Descendant.
