The Class-Based tag refers to a game design or mechanic in which players can choose from different character classes or roles that have distinct abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. The classes often represent different playstyles and strategies, allowing players to tailor their gameplay experience to their preferred style of play.

In a class-based game, each class typically has its unique set of skills, weapons, and abilities that differentiate it from other classes. This adds depth and variety to the gameplay as players can experiment with different classes to find the one that suits their preferred playstyle.

Class-based games often emphasize teamwork and cooperation as each class typically fulfills specific roles within a team or group. For example:

  • Tank A tank class is usually characterized by high health points (HP) and strong defensive capabilities. Tanks are meant to absorb damage, protect their team members, and draw enemies' attention away from more vulnerable teammates.
  • DPS (Damage Per Second) DPS classes focus on dealing high amounts of damage quickly. They are often fragile compared to tanks but make up for it with powerful offensive abilities. Their role is primarily focused on dealing damage efficiently.
  • Support Support classes excel at providing healing or assistance to their teammates. They may have restorative spells or buffs that enhance the performance of others in the group.

By offering a range of distinct character classes with unique capabilities, class-based games promote strategic decision-making during team composition and encourage coordinated teamwork during gameplay.

Examples of popular class-based games include:

  • Team Fortress 2 This multiplayer first-person shooter allows players to choose from various classes such as Soldier, Scout, Engineer, and Medic. Each class has its unique weapons and abilities that contribute to the team's overall objective.
  • Overwatch A team-based first-person shooter that features a diverse roster of heroes, each with its set of specialized skills and role within the team. Players must work together to secure objectives in highly competitive matches.
  • World of Warcraft An MMORPG known for its extensive class selection. Players can choose from a range of classes like Warrior, Mage, Priest, and more, each with its distinct playstyle and abilities that contribute to group-based gameplay in raids or dungeons.

The class-based tag indicates that the game offers players the opportunity to assume different roles or classes within the game world with distinct skill sets, contributing to strategic depth and promoting teamwork among players.
