Fire Emblem Engage: All Online Multiplayer Features Listed

To the delight of many players, Fire Emblem Engage does include some online multiplayer features, though it may not be as robust as you’d imagine.

Firstly, to access online multiplayer features in Fire Emblem Engage, you’ll need to travel to the Tower of Trials in the Somniel, the game’s hub area between missions. The Tower of Trials will be unlocked after completing Chapter 6: The Stolen Ring.

Within the Tower of Trials are a few options for online multiplayer features:

Relay Trials

In Relay Trials, you’ll be able to team up with other players online, each taking turns controlling the same army and battling against an AI-controlled army. Each player will get two to three consecutive turns controlling their team, resulting in battles that last between 10 to 15 turns.

Relay Trials can be created by using Relay Tickets, of which you’ll earn once every 24 hours by playing the game. Alternatively, you can take over Relay Trials that are already in progress without a Relay Ticket.

Outrealm Trials

Outrealm Trials allow you to stretch your creative muscles, giving players the opportunity to create and share their own arenas for other players to play on. You can download other players’ maps and battle their armies with your own, or you can battle other players’ armies on your own created maps.

In Outrealm Trials, you can take your army onto another player’s map and attempt to emerge victorious in a battle against their own. Whether you win or lose, both players will be rewarded at the end, which can be claimed in the View Results section.
