Soulcalibur VI Adds Tira As DLC, Introduces Libra Of Soul Story Mode

Update: We received word from Bandai Namco that Tira is available day one regardless of whether you purchased or preordered the Soulcalibur VI season pass. If you did not purchase the season pass at all, she is available standalone, but you do not get her early either way.

The original story is as follows:

With Soulcalibur VI launching later this year, fans are wondering which of their favorite characters might be returning for this soft reboot. While mainstays like Sophitia and Mitsurugi were never in doubt, Soulcalibur VI has not had many major returning villains yet with characters like Cervantes still MIA. The villainous aspect at least is being addressed with the reintroduction of Tira through a new trailer today.

Tira is the first announced DLC character for the game, which itself does not come out for two months. While she is part of the season pass, she will also be available as standalone DLC later, though Bandai Namco's wording seems to imply that preordering the season pass is the only way to get her early. The Soulcalibur community is fairly split on whether announcing the DLC before the entire roster for the game has even been revealed is alright or not, but Tekken brand manager Mark Julio argues that it's an extra incentive to reward players who purchase early.

People look at DLC as a negative. It’s a preorder bonus, so if you were buying game anyways you’ll get access to Tira no problem. There’s nothing wrong with giving incentive to those who are purchasing the title.

Jump Force Trailer Adds Vegeta, More One Piece Characters, And Teases A New Hero

The latest trailer for Jump Force, care of Gamescom, adds a ton of new heroes and stages, and teases that, "a new hero rises."

Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z, Sanji, Sabo, and Blackbeard from One Piece, and Gon and Hisoka from Hunter x Hunter all appear in the trailer, alongside a collection of stages like the one seen above which places the statue of liberty on Namek. At the very end, we also see a character wearing Luffy's straw hat. I have my money on a custom character, but I suppose we will have to wait and see.

Forza Horizon 4 Teams Up In Multiplayer

Playground Games has talked about Forza Horizon 4's shared world, but today at Gamescom more details about the racer's team-based competitive multiplayer were revealed.

The traditional competitive multiplayer games like Infected and Flag Rush are now all team-based. For instance, Infected is now Survivor where your teammates can heal an infected friend.

Similarly, in a team-based traditional race (the demo showed off two teams of six players) who wins is not based on who crosses the finish line first, but by which teams score the most points overall.
