I was already planing on picking this game up but then I found out that you can CREATE YOUR OWN CHARACTER, that was them moment I knew I had to have this game.
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe has revealed further information about upcoming title SOULCALIBUR VI, including the announcement of the second story mode, Libra of Soul, in-depth character creation, online gameplay and first DLC character, Tira.
Libra Of Soul is the second story mode in SOULCALIBUR VI, joining the already-revealed Chronicle of Souls mode. In this game mode, players will be able to create their own custom fighter from scratch before roaming the world in a quest to stop a new evil mastermind at work to gather Soul Edge shards. Along the way, players will come up against both characters from across the main storyline, and warriors created by the community, fighting in a variety of rule-specific showdowns which shape their own path.
Players will be able to customise their unique characters through thousands of different combinations, choosing from 16 races, including human, lizard or even living skeleton, before customising the size, facial features, hairstyle, clothes, armour and, of course. weapons and fighting style!
Also revealed today at Gamescom is online play, allowing players to fight using their own custom characters or favourite SOULCALIBUR VI fighters against other players from across the world in both casual or ranked matches.
Additionally, Tira, the Bird of Death, is also announced as a bonus character for those that purchase the Season Pass. Tira will also be sold as a stand-alone DLC.
Tira, an expert wielder of her Ring Blade named Eiserne Drossel, fights using her own Dance of Death style. Trained by the mysterious Birds of Passage group of assassins, Tira abandoned the group after its leader went mad. Alone and angry, Tira, travels across the world, slaughtering any that get in her way – taking great pleasure in the trail of blood in her wake.
