How to unlock character classes in Silent Hope
To unlock your additional classes to equip, you will need complete the objective listed in the class description at the top left of the class menu. Typically this will consist of reaching a specific area of the dungeon or reaching a high enough level on that particular character. Once the objective is completed, you will be able to equip the class to the character.
