The real time strategy title offers a free restricted version of its multiplayer. The restricted version allows players to use all of the Human race with no restrictions on units or buildings in multiplayer. The free version allows its user to host games on one map or join randoms on any of the maps featured in Tryst. Upgrading from the free restricted version to the full game unlocks the race known as the Zali.
This race differs from the more traditional Human race by requiring players to merge units rather than upgrade them. The Zali also have the ability to resurrected fallen units by collecting scrap pieces left behind after their deaths. The nature of the Zalis merging units opens up a wide range of skills, roles and strategic advantages for the player to use.
