The character selection menu allows the selection of one of thirty-six different character kits. Available character kits are shown in color while greyed out versions aren't available yet.
There are a limited number of actions that can be completed in this menu. It is really for selecting the character to play during matches.
The current level of a character is displayed below the character picture. A light-blue arrow will be displayed on the upper left of the picture if the character kits has gone up a level.
The currently chosen character kit will display statistics on the right side of the screen with the current rank, current level, current XP to next level, health, shields, skills, and bonus stat level for the kit.
Choosing this selection will switch the view from the statistics menu to a small description of the currently selected character kit.
This is the mechanism for changing the character kit to a newly selected kit from the available choices. This allows for the selection of a character kit from different character classes and seven different races to play thirty-six individual unique multiplayer characters.
This option changes the Character Selection menu over to the Character Customization menu. No customization is available in the Character Selection menu.
This name of this option will change to Select And Customize if the currently viewed character is not the selected character. This will select the character and go to the Character Customization menu.
Once a character kit reaches Level 20, a new option called "Reset Level" will be added to the lower portion of the Character Selection menu. This IS NOT a Character Respec card that resets skill points. This does not reset the rank (I-XX) of a character kit. This resets the character kit back to level 1. All skill points will be reset back to the minimum amount of Level 1. All skill points from gaining levels will have to be earned again. Selecting this choice will bring up a confirmation menu allowing you to change your mind before making this choice.
Exits back to the multiplayer main menu.
