Free-To-Play Version Of Dead or Alive 5 Version Coming To Steam

A free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 5 will be coming to Steam on PC on October 3 with four characters and nearly all of the game modes.

Dead or Alive 5 Last Resort: Core Fighters, the free-to-play version of Dead Or Alive 5, has been announced for Steam early in October, allowing players that don’t want to pay the full amount of money for the actual Dead or Alive 5 game to at experience at least one part of the game.

The free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 5 includes four different fighters: Ayane, Hayate, Kasumi, and Ryu Hayabusa (from Ninja Gaiden), along with nearly every game mode available in the actual full game. In celebration of the game’s Steam launch, the character Mila will also be available as free DLC for the Steam version of the game from October 3 to October 30.

Dead or Alive is one of the more…notable…fighting games out there, mainly because instead of a wide variety of characters of both genders, its characters are mainly just scantily-clad women wrestling or fighting in other styles.

The game also has a number of spinoffs such as the Dead or Alive Xtreme series, where all of those scantily-clad women go to a beach resort on vacation, allowing you to play a number of minigames with them.

There’s also, of course, a beach volleyball spin-off. But, whether or not you like the sort of images of women that the game decides, the free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 5 at least keeps up the tradition of the game looking pretty for…a number of reasons.

Whether you’re into it for the fighting, or the minigames, or just to ogle the girls, the game will allow you to fulfill any sort of wholesome fantasy with them that you could ask for.

if you want to actually play the full game, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is available to buy on Steam for forty dollars, and has not only all of the game modes but all of the characters on it too.
