An announcement for new and upcoming Soul Calibur 6 content has appeared, revealing that we’ll be getting at least one DLC character along with a story mode for the game. Players can expect to be able to buy Tira post-release, along with being able to play the “Libra Of Soul” story mode.
Tira has often been in other Soul Calibur games before this one, and is notable not just for her perky attitude but for being armed with the very unconventional weapon known as a ringblade. Tira is one of the franchises’s villainous characters alongside much more wicked characters like Nightmare, and is one of the first fan-favorite villains to come after a wide variety of heroic characters like Sophitia and Mitsurugi have been announced.
The game doesn’t come out for another two months, but Tira is the first bit of DLC Soul Calibur 6 content that’s been revealed for the game. Whether you pre-ordered or straight up purchase the game beforehand you’ll be able to buy her on day one, so there’s no real difference between it.
Also coming with the new Soul Calibur 6 content is news of the Libra of Soul story mode, which is fitting among the multiple other fighting games that are getting actual story modes rather than arcade modes, especially over the game’s other story mode, which only has static images and dialogue rather than full cutscenes. Hopefully it can win praise for its story mode much like the last few Mortal Kombat games and other fighting games with well-regarded story modes.
What makes the mode even better is that the story mode will also put the game’s guest character, Geralt of Rivia, into an actual role, to say nothing of the fact that players will also be able to use their own created character in the story mode.
So, if you look forward to having a different story mode to play than what Soul Calibur usually offers, you can get all of this new Soul Calibur 6 content as part of the game when it releases for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on October 19.
