In Xenoblade Chronicles X, most players lavish their attention on their created character. However, the game allows its players to control any party members in the same way as in Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii and 3ds.
If you ever get tired of the arms and craft of your own created character, you can always recruit a new party member by going to the active member area of your party menu and switching to the character you want.
In Xenoblade Chronicles X, as a part of being a BLADE operative, you have plenty of Party Members alongside you. Some Party Members are recruited automatically as you progress through the story, while others require you to complete their unique Affinity Missions.
The game’s terrible party interface is the main issue that gamers run into while playing Xenoblade Chronicles. Every time a player wishes to level up a character, he must locate every party member because there is no shortcut to seeing all possible party members.
Going outside to meet them each time is horrible, but using the map to poke around and locate them can be a solution. This article will assist in making your Xenoblade Chronicles X adventure simpler by outlining the methods for character recruitment.
