Dead Or Alive 6 is the next installment in the long-running fast-paced 3D fighting franchise, featuring multi-tiered stages that create a truly entertaining competitive experience.

Composed of fast-paced 3D fighting games that began with the original Dead Or Alive arcade game in 1996, and have since appeared on a multitude of consoles and arcade machines around the world. In Dead Or Alive 6, the world of DOA is brought back more vibrant than ever, featuring both enhanced visuals and an updated combat systems, aimed to provide the highest possible level of new fighting entertainment.

The story will follow the events of Dead Or Alive 5, focusing on 2 separate main narratives; namely, the battle between “Ninja and DOATEC” versus “M.I.S.T. lead by Donovan”, and the events that occur during the 6th Dead Or Alive Tournament. New side story episodes will also be added for returning characters.

With the help of a new graphics engine, DOA6 aims to bring visual entertainment of fighting games to an entirely new level. The graphics are made to be both enticingly beautiful and realistic, bringing out enhanced facial expressions, such special effects as depiction of sweat and dirt on character models, and realistic hit effects.

Dead Or Alive 6: Core Fighters is a new free-to-play experience now available to download for the PS4, Xbox One, and digitally on PC via Steam.

Dead Or Alive 6: Core Fighters offers fighting game fans a limited look into the world of DOA6, including four base characters – Kasumi, Hitomi, Diego, and Bass – as well as online ranked battles, Versus, Arcade, Time Attack, Training, and Quest modes. In addition, DOA6’s introduction to Story mode will be unlocked, along with DOA Central, the hub for everything from wardrobe and music to the library and theater.

Today also marks the release of Dead Or Alive 6’s second online update; adding more high-level DOA Quests, a variety of new entrance and victory scenes, and the tuning of costume part earning parameters in order to help enhance the overall gaming experience. Additionally, the first Season Pass content -- the Happy Wedding Vol. 1 pack – is now available, with plenty more on tap for the coming months including more costume packs and two new characters from King Of Fighters XIV.

Following the tradition, fights in Dead Or Alive 6 are based on a triangle system: strikes beat throws, throws beat holds, and holds beat strikes. Landing a well-timed attack of the type that beats your opponent’s attack, like landing a strike when an opponent tries to throw, will result in a Hi Counter attack and do more damage.

In this new title, we are introducing a new Special Move Gauge (Break Gauge) to the Dead Or Alive series, adding a new dramatic strategic element to the fights. This element is made to be accessible and easy to use even for people who are new to the world of fighting games, and is activated by simply pressing the [RB] button.

  • A strong, high-damage special move that knocks your opponents down. The first part of the move also parries incoming attacks, working as both an offensive and defensive move!
  • A convenient counter technique that can also be used while the player is heavily stunned. It should only be used in tight situations due to its light-damage output.
  • A powerful combo with a dramatic finishing move, activated by consecutively pressing the [RB] button. While it is made to be easy to use for beginner players, it can also be employed in more than one creative way by the experienced competitors.
  • If knocked into onlookers, they will push the player back into the center of the stage. It is a trap that combines the atmosphere of a real street fight with strategy.
  • If the opponent is knocked back into a large stack of boxes or barrels with a “Break Blow” or ”Fatal Rush” it will cause a large chain-explosion. This will lead to a huge burst of damage and produces an exhilarating rush.

Dead Or Alive 6 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and digitally on PC (via Steam).
