Now the character is available for season pass holders and individual buyers alike to to the battle android for a spin.

If you have no interest in the other season pass characters who have yet to be detailed, you can pick 2B up for $5.99 on her own. She uses a fighting style reminiscent of the game's katana weapon, mostly focusing on that but also occasionally bringing out her fist weapons as well. The Soulcalibur subreddit has been going back and forth since her release trying to decide if she is overpowered or not.

For her super, 2B uses the pod's charge attacks to spear the enemy from the ground. She also has a two-player skin which Nier director Yoko Taro has named 2P, giving her a different skin color and a white dress. Nier: Automata also recently got a Game of the Yorha edition announced with a special message from Taro alongside it.

Life Is Strange 2's Second Episode Lands On January 24

Life is Strange 2 has had a bit of a non-traditional schedule. While episodic, the episodes seem to be coming out at a kind of a strange pace, with a preview episode releasing during E3, the official first episode hitting in September, and a second episode coming out months later on January 24.

That means there will be about 119 days between the first two episodes. In their self-described pursuit of quality, Dontnod is actively eschewing the traditional monthly episodic model, which honestly made very little sense in the first place. The developer emphasized the quality aspect when they initially narrowed down the release date to January.
