Welcome, warriors of the wastes! With less than a month to go until the June 7 launch of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, it’s time to take a close-up look at the new fighters and DLC options!
The world of Guilty Gear is loaded with fantastical fighters and insane warriors, all with their own unique agendas and motivations for fighting. If you’ve pre-ordered the game digitally on PS4 via PlayStation Store, you’ve no doubt been busy cracking skulls and solidifying your technique in the demo mode. While the full roster of characters is currently available in demo mode, two new characters will be available from June 7 to June 21 for free on PlayStation Store! These characters are Raven and Kum Haehyun.
Raven the “Undying Disease” is suitable for any style of play, but he excels as a technical mid-range character. Keep your enemies close (but not too close) and take advantage of his long reaching normal attacks.
Raven proves exceptionally difficult for fighters that have issues against zoners and he exploits this with a projectile that deals damage and slows down the opponent. Raven loves to take pain just as much as he loves to dish it out. Don’t believe me? Rattle off his “Give it to me here” move and see it for yourself. If you miss out on downloading Raven during launch for free, you can unlock him with free in-game currency at any time.
Kum Haehyun — AKA the “Turner of the World” — is a special kind of crazy. Looks like an old man, right? Wrong! Have you ever wanted to pilot your very own fighting mech that looked like a super-ripped, grizzled warrior of the apocalypse? Now you can! Kum Haehyun is the name of the girl who “pilots” the veteran looking warrior, a humanoid construct that delivers old style beat downs with a sensei like efficiency.
Haehyun is a power based fighter that’s built for maximum smash-imization (Yikes!) and does not utilize the gatling combo system. Haehyun’s hits deal massive damage and are ideal for link based combos. Her technical tools and power offer a very adaptable solution to virtually any combat situation. Haehyun will be available for purchase after the two-week launch window.
Lastly, you’ll have the ability to download the ultra-cool and impossibly stylish character color pack Eclipse Set for free from June 7 to June 21 as well. The Eclipse Set adds a new dimension of artistic awesomeness to your battles and will also be available for purchase after the two-week launch window.
Fans of fast paced fighters, get ready to revel in post-apocalyptic 2D glory. Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and its free DLC launch on June 7 for both PS4 and PS3!
