The deck building in Forced Showdown means players will have a large variety of different builds for each character. Cards can be used for a wide range of things, including boosting abilities, summoning allied minions and changing the arena rules.


Players will choose a campaign at start (beta is currently single choice). New players will need to complete a 'tutorial' of multiple events to learn the game with a pre-selected character. During this arena event, players will learn to use multiple abilities against enemies. A majority of the arena barriers are destructible. Enemies with red health bars will need to be defeated to continue while enemies with yellow health bars are optional.

During play, random cards from a pre-selected (by the game in tutorial mode) deck will become available. Players select the cards by clicking on them. The effects are immediately applied to the character.
