Guilty Gear Strive

Arc System Works has even more to showcase from Guilty Gear Strive before launch with a closer look at Anji Mito and a yet-to-be-announced fighter. In the meantime, it recently put out a FAQ clarifying several details, like cross-play between the PS4 and PS5 versions. While this has been confirmed, PlayStation players will be unable to play with Arcade or Steam players.

The good news is that those who purchase the PS4 version, either through retail or digitally, can upgrade to PS5 for free. The PS4 version is also backwards compatible on PS5 though it will only run at 1080p resolution and perform the same. Downloadable content can be shared between both versions with the same PlayStation Network account.

Interestingly, despite Deluxe and Ultimate Edition owners getting access three days before launch, they’ll be limited to offline modes, 13 characters and the Prologue of Story Mode. When the Standard Edition launches, then all online modes, the Main Story and all characters will be accessible. A patch will go live on April 9th to facilitate this and is required for all editions of the game.

Guilty Gear Strive is out on April 9th 2021 for PS4, PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details and reveals in the coming months.
