What is SOULCALIBUR 6?
SOULCALIBUR 6 is the next entry in the popular fighting series which focuses on weapon based fighting, and will be making the jump to PC later tonight for the first time in the history of the franchise. The game will feature 21 playable characters, from old favourites such as Taki, Sophitia, Ivy, Maxi and more, as well as newcomers such as Geralt of Rivia making a guest appearance in the series! Take on 2 unique single player campaigns, each with their own twists and mechanics. Soul Chronicle will retell the events of the original game, with new cinematics and stories to tell - while the Libra of Souls will allow players to create their own custom characters to do battle with and level up with RPG mechanics.
There's also plenty of Multiplayer action to keep players busy with as the game offers a variety of modes including: Ranked Matches, Casual Matches, Arcade and Training Modes. You'll also be able to visit the Museum to look at a gallery filled with artwork, documents, movies and more! Along with the classic 8 way movement and other mechanics that the series is best known for, SOULCALIBUR 6 features a new Reversal Edge mechanic which will give a new twist to the action in battle as players try to guess their opponents moves (a bit like Rock/Paper/Scissors). There's also the new Soul Charge which is gained over time and can be unleashed to do more powerful attacks at any point.
Like with other entries in the series SOULCALIBUR 6 is easy to pick up and start playing, whether you're a newcomer or a veteran there's something for everyone. If you've never played a SOULCALIBUR game before, or if you're looking for a fighter which is easy to learn then SOULCALIBUR 6 may be the game for you!
