We may now know the identities of Guilty Gear Strive's upcoming DLC characters.
Dataminers may have discovered who will be coming to Guilty Gear Strive (via TechRaptor). By datamining dialogue files, several voice lines for characters were discovered. The voice lines seem to be combat related, hinting that the characters could be playable. The four characters are Slayer, Baiken, Jack-O' Valentine, and Happy Chaos. All four of these characters appear in Strive's Story Mode, making it plausible that they could be playable. Of course, this is not a guarantee that these four will end up as fighters in the game.
Guilty Gear Strive's first DLC fighter, Goldlewis Dickinson, is available now for those who own the game's Season Pass. He will be available for everyone else on July 30th. Goldlewis is one the biggest fighters in the game, and is a heavy hitter. He is capable of wielding a number of weapons, including a gatling gun. He also carries a large coffin on a chain that can be used to attack. Inside of the coffin is an alien from Area 51, which is able to assist Goldlewis in some of his attacks.
Guilty Gear Strive's Season Pass will feature five characters. The second DLC fighter is expected to be revealed and released next month. The third character will then be released later this year. The two remaining characters will be dropped in 2022. The fighters will be a mix of veteran characters as well as characters that will be new to the series as fighters. Strive's Season Pass will also feature two new stages, which will both release next year. The Season Pass will also include new content for Strive's Story Mode, though this content will be exclusive to those who own the Season Pass.
Guilty Gear Strive is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
