■ Battle System
Cancels your attack, sends a shockwave, and slows down your opponent’s movement. You can use it while attacking to strengthen your offense, or use it defensively to weather your opponent’s attacks. Roman Cancel is a mechanic that can add depth to your matches, depending on how you use it.
Drive the opponent to the edge of the stage and unleash a certain attack to break the wall and blow them away into a different stage with a flashy scene. Not only will they take additional damage from the blow, your character’s attack power and other stats will increase for a limited time.
■ Offline Modes
The fated conclusion!
The story of Guilty Gear finally reaches its climax! The Story Mode loved by fans in previous titles returns in Guilty Gear: Strive! Now with further evolved direction and graphics.

Control your own custom avatar and enjoy battles and communication while using emotes and chat.
—A New Rating System Pits You Against Players of the Same Skill Level!
Guilty Gear: Strive‘s Online Lobby assigns you to a floor depending on your skill level. Skill level is determined not only by the outcome of battle, but also by the analysis of your actions during matches. And because players at the same skill level naturally gather on the same floor, everyone from new players to veterans can enjoy tense battles!
—The Floor at the Top of the Lobby Reserved for Only the Most Skilled Players
Only players who continue to achieve good results can enter the “Heaven” floor at the top of the Online Lobby. The entrance to this floor is an extremely narrow gate. It is quite literally the top of the top.
—Use “Quick Start” to Quickly Jump into Online Battles
Guilty Gear: Strive features a “Quick Start” function that allows players to move directly from the menu screen to battle standby. Jump into an online match immediately!
Up to nine players can enter a “Player Match” room, allowing players to enjoy online battles with specific friends.
Guilty Gear: Strive is due out for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on April 9. The Deluxe and Ultimate Editions will launch for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 three days in advance on April 6. Read more about the game here.
