Guilty Gear -Strive- is the latest entry in the fighting game franchise, and upholds the series’ reputation for groundbreaking hybrid 2D/3D cell-shaded graphics and intense, rewarding gameplay.

Guilty Gear -Strive- will bring the franchise to the next level with new gameplay and updated design, created by the main development team that is lauded over their previous work.

Sophisticated game mechanics designed to bring out the mind games we know fighting games for, including the audacious new wall-break mechanic. The drama heats up as you and your opponent clash!

With zoom-ins and slow motion camera effects, impressive text visuals and top-notch animation quality, Guilty Gear -Strive- is filled to the brim with visual elements to make the show even more exciting, not only for you but also for those who watch it.

Arc System Works revealed that the release version of Guilty Gear -Strive- will use rollback netcode for online play. Please note that the rollback implementation is still being developed so the upcoming closed beta will be using a delay-based implementation.

Guilty Gear -Strive- is having a new release date and will now be available on 11th June, 2021.

The added time will allow Arc System Works to continue working on delivering the best experience possible for players by polishing some aspects of the game, such as online lobbies and server stability.

Pre-orders for the game are available on the PlayStation Store and on PC. Owners of the PS4 version will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for free.

Early Access will have 13 out of 15 characters playable. For the Story mode, only the prologue will be available before the release. During the Early Access, online modes will not be available.

The latest chapter in the Guilty Gear franchise will finally land in the hands of fighting game fans on June 11, 2021 for the PS4, PS5 and PC (Steam) for $59.99, with the Deluxe and Ultimate Edition available on June 8, 2021.
