We’ve known for a while now that Koei-Tecmo would be releasing a free-to-play version of Dead or Alive 6, like they did with Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters. And now, with the base game itself having been out for just two weeks, its free-to-play version has been made available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters will allow players to play through several modes, including DOA Central, Time Attack, Arcade, Versus, Training, a few DOA Quests, as well as the introduction of the story mode. While the selection of modes is impressive, players will be restricted to a much more limited roster of playable characters, with only four – Kasumi, Bass, Hitomi, and newcomer Diego – being available.
For those who want to try out the core systems of the games and dabble in some of the modes on offer, this presents a good chance to test the waters and judge whether or not the game is worth a full purchase. You can also read our review for it through here for more information.
