If you're looking forward to a new MMO to invest all your free time into, you may be looking forward to Blue Protocol - in which case, we've got a breakdown of all the classes available to play. 

Blue Protocol is an online action role-playing game developed by Bandai Namco and published by Amazon Studios. With a focus on a dynamic combat system that allows players to switch classes, it's important to know how each one works. So, check out our explainer for all Blue Protocol classes.

There are a total of five classes confirmed for Blue Protocol so far. These are:

  • Blade Warden
  • Twin Striker
  • Keen Strider
  • Spell Weaver
  • Foe Breaker

It's worth noting that classes in the game are very flexible and not tied to a character permanently. Instead, you can change classes as you wish, allowing you to use different weapons and skills to adapt to different circumstances.

We caught up with Mike Zadorojny, Franchise Leader on Blue Protocol, about developing the class system at our hands-on preview. He described each class as a "spectrum" of options.

You're picking a spectrum, and then it's your job to figure out where you wanna play on that spectrum," he explained.

"Do you want more DPS? Do you wanna be more supportive? Do you want to offer more heals? All that's kind of in the player's hands.

"It's not like the Blade Warden is strictly a tank," Zadorojny explains.

"It's just the opposite. It was like, okay, Blade Warden (traditional Sword and Shield) is a tank option, and we understand that, but we're also going to be more expansive about there being pure DPS options and crowd control options in there, and even crowd control support options."

Read on for a more in-depth explanation of each Blue Protocol class. 

Blade Warden explained

"A master of sword and shield, this close-range class is the cornerstone of any defence."

The Blade Warden is a melee knight class with a focus on crowd control and tanking hits for other players. The shield is the cornerstone of this Blue Protocol class, providing offensive and defensive options to stop enemies in their tracks and absorb their damage. 

Twin Striker explained

"A close-range class that unleashes a fierce, continuous attack with two axes."

The Twin Striker is mostly a fighter-focused class, allowing them to cleave through enemies with ease thanks to their high agility and strength. Wielding two axes, they have potential for a lot of damage, but when the tides shift in battle, they're also able to adapt into a tank role as needed. 

Keen Strider explained

"A technical class that specialises in party battles and excels at mid and long-range attacks and support."

The Keen Strider is essentially an analogue for a traditional ranger class, providing raw damage and helpful utility from a distance while others get in close. If you want a full view of the battlefield to help out where needed, this class might be for you. 

Spell Weaver explained

"A high-difficulty, long-distance class suitable for parties. Stay safe from the frontline with the ability to eliminate enemies by firing high-power attribute attacks."

Taking on the role of a mage, the Spell Weaver can put out a litany of magical attacks based on Fire, Ice, or Lightning - whatever the situation calls for. They can support other players indirectly by providing debuffs to enemies, or stand far back and charge up their attacks for maximum damage.

Foe Breaker explained

"A close-to-medium-range class that maintains the battle line with a heavyweight hammer that has a blow that can shake the earth." 

Foe Breakers are slow but heavy hitters, with their hammer providing massive damage when enemies stand around long enough to take the hit. They're also useful as a tank class due to their high HP, but their primary role is in getting close and dealing damage or standing just far away enough to load up their cannon. 

That's our full breakdown of the five classes in Blue Protocol, and now you understand a little more about the game's class system, along with what each class can do.
