Additional battle stage “White House Reborn” will also launch on March 28 for Season Pass 1 owners. It will be available as an individual purchase for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 users on March 31, and for PC (Steam) users on March 28. As the name implies, the stage features the Presidential Residence of the United States, and serves as a key stage in the Story Mode. It suffers major damage during the events of the story and is currently under reconstruction, and has already been restored to its position as the center of the government.
The new mode “Digital Figure” mode will also be added via a free update on March 28. In it, you can freely position characters, furniture, effects, and more to create original scenes. You can also customize each character’s expressions and poses, the camera angle, and apply filters, as well as share your creations online with other players.
“Another Story,” the final new piece of content of Season Pass 1, will launch in late April and depicts an alternate perspective on the game’s lore, highlighting many characters who did not make an appearance in the main story.
Here is Testament’s description, via the Guilty Gear: Strive official website:
Crimson scythe swaying in an enchanting dance. Elegant Grim Reaper.
Testament was once human, before being surgically modified into a Gear.
Under the control of the Conclave, they worked to revive Justice. After the events of the Second Holy Order Selection Tournament, however, they regained their sense of self. Feeling guilty, they hid in the Forest of Demons, before resolving to protect the half-Gear Dizzy from the humans who pursued her. Although this began as a way to atone for their sins, it ended up bringing back their human sensibility.
They now live with the elderly couple who once took care of Dizzy. This new life has brought them peace of mind, and they now enjoy their share of happiness.
Finally, Arc System Works also confirmed Season 2 of Guilty Gear: Strive, which will include four new playable characters and cross-platform play between PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. The developer is also preparing updates to stabilize online play by improving servers and reducing connection time to the server.
Guilty Gear: Strive is available now for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
