Glossary Entry: Respawn

Quick Definition

In games, being destroyed is not always the end for an entity. Often, they will be re-added to the game's world where they began. This is known as "respawning".

Typically, the player's characters will automatically respawn after a short delay if they died during the game. In such cases there is usually a designated spawn point* for their character.
