The Party-Based RPG tag refers to a subgenre of role-playing games (RPGs) that focus on controlling and managing a group or "party" of characters rather than a single protagonist. In these games, players assemble a team of characters with unique abilities, skills, and roles, and navigate through the game world as a cohesive unit.

In Party-Based RPGs, players take on the role of the party's leader or main character. They are responsible for making strategic decisions regarding party composition, character development, equipment upgrades, and overall progression.

Some key features that distinguish Party-Based RPGs include:

  • Party Customization Players have control over selecting and customizing individual party members, choosing their classes or roles within the group. This allows for diverse gameplay strategies and tactics. Examples include assigning warriors as frontline tanks or mages as ranged damage dealers.
  • Tactical Combat Party-Based RPGs often emphasize strategic combat encounters where positioning, teamwork, and understanding each character's abilities play critical roles in achieving victory. These games may employ turn-based combat systems such as those found in the iconic Baldur's Gate series or real-time with pause combat like in Pillars of Eternity.
  • Character Development As players progress through the game, they earn experience points to level up their characters' skills and unlock new abilities. This progression allows for specialized roles within the party to be enhanced further over time.
  • Narrative Focus Storytelling is often an essential component within Party-Based RPGs. The relationships and interactions between party members can be explored in-depth, and the game's plot may revolve around the development of these characters as individuals and as a cohesive unit.

Some examples of well-known Party-Based RPG games include:

  • Dragon Age: Origins Developed by BioWare, this game allows players to assemble a diverse group of companions, each with their own background stories and abilities, to embark on an epic fantasy adventure.
  • Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire This isometric CRPG lets players lead a party across a richly detailed world filled with complex quests and tactical battles.
  • Fallout series (classic titles) The original Fallout games such as Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 are Party-Based RPGs that take place in post-apocalyptic settings where players control the actions of several characters at once.
  • The Divinity: Original Sin series These modern CRPGs allow for cooperative multiplayer where players work together controlling multiple party members, solving puzzles, overcoming challenges in turn-based combat encounters within richly interactive environments.

Party-Based RPGs provide immersive experiences that emphasize teamwork, strategic decision-making, character growth, and storytelling. They offer a depth of gameplay opportunities through managing different party compositions, exploring synergies between characters' abilities, and orchestrating complex battle strategies.
