Libra of Soul, New Character, and Tira Reveal Trailers

Gamescom trailers are starting to get pumped out by Bandai Namco and we got two awesome reveals. Libra of Soul is a new game mode for SOULCALIBUR VI where you make your own character for an alternate story. You will be able to travel, complete missions, and meet SOULCALIBUR VI characters along the way.

In the Libra of Souls trailer, we can see that there is a new antagonist that will be in SOULCALIBUR VI. Considering the quality of his details, it is safe to say that he will be a playable character. Based on appearances alone, he will most likely be a magic staff user.


Tira was also announced! She will be a pre-order bonus incentive and she will also be available with the season pass. She still retains her Jolly and Gloomy stances from SC4 and SC5. Tira also refers to each mood as names for the different personalities in her head which is a nice touch. Personally, I am super excited for her reveal in particular. The main question at this point is if she will be a part of any story modes in SOULCALIBUR VI since she is a DLC incentive.


In other news, as of yesterday you can pre-order the game digitally on all platforms. SOULCALIBUR VI comes out on October 19, 2018. Keep in mind that Steam releases globally all at the same time, so for the western world, the game will be releasing on the 18th.

*Rolls through to the surprise of absolutely nobody.*

Gee, all of those parts and patterns look really familiar, almost like they're all exactly out of Soul Calibur 5! This is great news for me, because unless they drop the rococo skirt for no reason, my OC from then is coming back. And getting to run my own little adventure with her is super duper exciting! :D But it also kind of looks like they just copy/pasted the entire mode wholesale. That said, I'm not remotely mad about that because it still beats the pants off of every other creation mode since it came out even way back when; don't fix what ain't broke! And people can recreate the characters they've become attached to.

I still have some points of curiosity. First: are there any improvements at all? Can we choose which parts break during lethal hits? Do we still have arbitrary sticker limits? Is the specular color bug from parts like the rococo skirt fixed? The UI doesn't show a number for sliders. I honestly think it really should otherwise recipe sharing will still be a pain. We can still get around that by using offsets from the start position but there's no reason not to show a number.

The announcement on Shoryuken mentioned that community-made characters would be hanging out as LoS opponents. If that's true, where do we submit those, if we even do? Are they just scraping designs from match replays saved on SC5's servers? The ToS we agreed to when we started the game probably gave them permission to do that.
 
Loveeeee herrrr! My whole day, week, month, year, life has been made.

Also people shit talking DLC needs to stop. Would you rather a disappointing set cast like Soulcalibur 5 again, ‘cause I’m sure as hell glad more options are coming.
So...um. I'm not sure I should be telling you this... but uh...
...Tira was in Soulcalibur 5

I'm sure they'll have more customization options in the real game, they've never slacked on it before so I wouldn't expect them to now. I personally hope they expand on the hairstyle and shoe/boot types. Mostly Female hairstyles. (Maybe get a longer ponytail with bangs this time? Or at least let you change the length of existing ones?)
 
DLCing a main antagonist is an EA move, sorry man.
In order to release the game on the promised date, or near enough, they needed to bite the bullet on content management.
I'd rather receive a properly managed game, than a rushed one that caters to everyone. And since they already have a deadline for financial considerations, that's how it's going to be. Notice how they already gave it one more day? They know what they are doing and they are doing their best.
tldr I disagree and you're entitled to your own, wrong opinion sorry breh.

I am still thinking that SHE shouldn't be DLC'd, maybe a *side* character like, well, I dunno.
Or an old classic llike Arthur or Li-long. You know, someone DLC-able.

NO WAY, REALLY?! I meant the fact that the cast of SC5 literally didn't change. Dampierre was DLC but was ON THE DISC.
She has no story significance at all until SC3, and she doesn't really antagonize the main protagonists until SC5.
Technically speaking, it happened at the end of 3 and during 4, 'cause all I can remember Sophie saying in 4 is that she'll find her whiny ass daughter.
 
@Party Wolf two questions: I can't seem to find the pre-order on steam, is there some other way I'm supposed to be pre-ordering it? And do you mean that SC6 on steam will be out Oct 18 12:01 am? Or were you talking about the time difference?

There is no perfect man...

*INTENSELY Looks at mitsurugi
 
Tira is confirmed to have her “own adventure” in Chronicles of the Soul mode. He also confirms that she WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN THE GAME had it not been for DLC, so stop crying about the price tag. 💛💜

I think you mean Soul Chronicle story just like the other 20 characters out of 24.
