Arc System Works has detailed the new game modes in the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions of Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign, as well as teased at least one still to be announced playable character.
A new mode continuing further than the story of the arcade version. The story will be told through an adventure game-like format, but will try new things to set it apart from the norm.
Find a outline of the story below.
October 21, 2187. 12:12 p.m.
A young woman who calls herself Ramlethal Valentine has declared war against the world. Not a single individual, organization, or countries took this declaration as a laughing matter. Because of the prior “Baptism 13 Incident,” during which the capital of the Illyria Kingdom suffered a violent assault, the attacker also referred to herself as “Valentine.” Now, to make sure of the truth of the matter, the world must take action.
With the home console release, you can play online against players across the country. Cross-platform play will allow PlayStation 4 owners and PlayStation 3 owners the ability to play together. Additionally, both versions of the game can share save data and trophies.
Tutorial and Challenge Modes
In the home console release, Arc System Works has not only re-adjusted game modes that appeared in the arcade version, but added new Tutorial and Challenge modes, too.
Tutorial Mode will let newcomers hone their skills and learn how to play. Challenge Mode will let players put to the test the practical operation of their characters.
M.O.M. Mode, or Medal of Millionaire Mode, is a single-player mode where players fight against AI-controlled characters to earn medals that strengthen your character. Using the medals you obtain, it’s possible to purchase new skills and items in this RPG-like character development mode.
There are plans to support network play in this mode.
A new character(s) is being added to the home console release. As for which new character(s) is participating, however, you’ll have to wait for a future update.
All existing characters will return, including Ramlethal Valentine, who was added to the arcade version of the game post-launch.
On PlayStation 4, the game is rendered in full-high definition 1080p.
