Fire Emblem Engage online features

Fire Emblem Engage’s online features and multiplayer come in the form of unique opportunities to form parties and group up in the Tower of Trials. These are Relay Trials. In addition to that, players can form their own teams to take on other champions from other players, with that champion controlled by AI in Outrealm Trials.

Relay Trials are quite simplistic and just have you engaging in online battles against AI with each player you are with getting a couple of turns to attack. To engage in Relay Trials you will need to get Relay Tickets. Outrealm Trials can be undertaken whenever and allow you to build your own maps and share them with other players to play on. You can also take your existing army onto another player’s map and battle against them, attempting to defeat their AI-controlled champion, as described above.

These modes are only available online and the game doesn’t have any kind of local co-op features. So, you will need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play these two modes.

That covers what you can expect in terms of the Fire Emblem Engage online features and multiplayer modes. For more about the game, see our guide on the Fire Emblem Engage chapters to know how long you have left and our Fire Emblem Engage length article to see the time it takes to finish them all.
