    The network test for SoulCalibur VI has now started on PS4 and Xbox One will run over the weekend.

    Anyone else looking forward to this? The main site has done a poor job of promoting the beta.

    This will be my first SC since the second game, which I loved. A lot of classic characters are returning for this entry.

    I am looking forward to it, love a bit of soul calibur and it looks like there is a decent amount of single player content to play this time.

    Plays and looks great, had a few online fights with no latency issues and one fight against an American which wasn't nearly as smooth. I only ever play online to disturb people with my gimp factory characters, some of the messages I got on the last one were amazing.

    Had great fun with this last night. It's pretty bare bones for options in this online beta, but most of the characters are available.

    Can't wait to get stuck in to the full game and learn some of the movesets properly.

    Yeah I saw that. Not the best way to engender support for a title.

    @Frogofdoom He's in the base game. Tira is the only announced DLC character so far.

    That changes a lot at later ranks. I managed to make it to 4.5kRP over the weekend using Geraldine of River Dance who transitions amazingly across as a guest character. It's really good fun, and the mechanics are good. Reversal edge is a noob crusher, but will destroy you if you abuse it against a smart opponent. Wish I could find a full move list though, some of the Soul Charge moves are still foreign to me... though in fairness, I didn't need them. Soul Charge, AARD AARD AARD AARD AARD. Obnoxious as shit but did the job!

    Really looking forwards to this now. Might enter Warriors Reborn in Manchester later this month to try my hand against some vets in a tournament setting. I know Aixy has been on a tear (he played it at Evo, came 9th, and won the EGX tournament).

    Geralt is a perfect fit for this really, one of their best guest characters so far.

    Rumor mill is still going around about other characters to be announced though - including 2B from Nier.

    I would be perfectly happy for that not to be a thing.

    Hwang would make my Mrs happy, he is her favourite fighting game character and she was gutted when he was removed.

    Tbf you can't have Seong-Mina and not have Hwang, and the rumours of these characters has been 100% on point including the order of release too

    Cassie shouldn't really be a dlc character but I was never great with her so it doesn't matter too much to me.

    When was Hwang last used though as a playable character it must have been soulcalibur?

    Soul Cal 3 was the last one he was in. And 5's "young generations" can fuck right off.

    Would be happy with that. We definitely need Hwang, or the similar character who's been in since SC2 (Yun-seong, I think).

    Not played Setsuka but from what I've seen and read she would be a good fit for a DLC character. I'm not a huge fan of guest characters but 2B would be interesting.

    Setsuka is bloody tricky to learn I found, people that are good with her are devastating though. That may be through not seeing her often and knowing her moves though

    Wow, out this month, didn't realise. No Hilde though? That's a shame. Maybe they thought she was too broken.

    @GarlVinland they haven't finished announcing all characters I think, or at least all DLC ones. This is set earlier in the series timeline supposedly, so we're mostly getting older characters.

    Meant to be a retelling from SC1 days, so legacy characters.

    Hilde can stay away as far as I'm concerned, never liked her :D

    I was only ever interested in Kilik, and I haven't played the thing since arcade SC2. So yeah, don't think I'd still know what's going on.
  • Deleted user 5 October 2018 15:16:46
    Played it to death back when it was Soul Blade on the PS1, mostly as Taki. Never since, but Hilde stood as being particular unique with the spear and sword combo, if a little broken. Hope she makes it in, even as DLC, would love to try playing as her. If 2B can then no reason why not!

    Out this week. There's also a launch event at Meltdown Bar on Caldonian Road in London on the 18th. I'll be there, getting slapped about silly trying to win a tournament where we've had zero training mode so far.
