During The Game Awards event, Bandai Namco officially announced SoulCalibur VI, the next mainline chapter of the SoulCalibur series.
Following the 20th anniversary of the franchise, the famous weapon based fighting game returns to its roots whilst bringing brand new gameplay features. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, SoulCalibur VI will feature the most dynamic and intense graphics ever seen in the series.
SoulCalibur VI's story takes place in the 16th Century, where players will get the chance to revisit events from the original SoulCalibur and find some hidden truths. Players will travel through signature 16th century stages and experience the struggle for the two legendary swords using a roster of returning characters along with newcomers.
Gameplay has been revamped with the all new Reversal Edge feature allowing players to take balance between attack and defence. Once activated, players can defend against the opponents attack and directly counter with a powerful strike highlighted through a dynamic camera.
SoulCalibur VI will launch in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
