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 announced that the long-time Guilty Gear franchise favorite, Baiken, will arrive Friday, Jan. 28, as the fourth playable character in Season Pass 1 for Guilty Gear -Strive-.

Also this Friday, ASW will launch its free new “Combo Maker” game mode allowing players to create and share their own combo sequences as well as the additional battle stage "Lap of the Kami.” Players can purchase Baiken separately for $6.99 starting Monday, Jan. 31

As one of the original unlockable bosses in the very first Guilty Gear, Baiken quickly became a major hit among fans. Guilty Gear -Strive- players have anticipated Baiken’s debut in game, where her arrival boosts the Guilty Gear -Strive- roster to 19 total characters, including the recently added Season 1 Pass characters Goldlewis Dickinson, Jack-O and Happy Chaos. Players can purchase the Season Pass 1 DLC for $29.99, which includes five additional playable characters, two battle stages, color pack and story content.

Baiken’s backstory created immediate intrigue among Guilty Gear fans, combining the tragedy of family loss with her ongoing path to vengeance. Baiken limits her opponent's movements with special moves that automatically counterattack and wields a Japanese sword with a variety of dark weapons. ASW released a character trailer and starter guide to give players the training needed to master this new fighter.

As part of a free update, players can also fight in the new battle stage “Lap of the Kami," a Japanese-style stage based on the theme of mysterious "red seals" beginning Friday, Jan. 28. The new battle stage features breathtaking vistas with rich, colorful forests.

Lastly, ASW wants to thank fans for their amazing support of Guilty Gear -Strive- by releasing a free game mode called "Combo Maker” where players can create and share their own original combo sequences of moves with others. “Combo Maker” gives the community an all-new way to collaborate, allowing them to learn new moves, practice more difficult combos or level up their skills. The "Combo Maker" Play Guide introduces the features and how to use this mode.

Guilty Gear -Strive- is available for PS4, PS5 and PC (Steam) for $59.99.
