[TGS 2013] Soulcalibur Lost Swords coming to PS3 this winter
Namco Bandai has announced the latest entry to the Soulcalibur franchise with the recently revealed Soulcalibur Lost Swords. The upcoming PlayStation 3 title will be hitting store shelves this winter, but the bigger news is that Lost Swords’ will actually be going down the popular free-to-play path.
According to the description from Lost Swords’ latest trailer, the game will be a single-player only experience and include features such as “a brand new item discovery and forging system as well as elemental-based fighting mechanics.” As for who you'll be using those new fighting mechanics on exactly, the preview displays several fighters but promises characters from across the franchise.
However, since we’re talking about a free-to-play title here, we can assume there will be some sort of post-launch purchases. Namco Bandai has yet to disclose the specifics, so let’s just hope it won't burn too big of a hole in our wallets for now.
I hope it has characters fans actually care about. Not Rikku from FFX pretending to be Taki, not some crybaby pretending to be Sophitia, and definitely not some self-righteous, homicidal racist that Namco wants us to root for.
if it's like tekken revolutions, i have no problem with it.
I'm confused. This is a single player only fighting game? What does that need a free-to-play model for?
Let's just hope it doesn't make the same stupid decisions they made with Tekken Revolution. Free to play my ass, i can't deal with having to wait one hour in order to play an arcade match.
I hope they bring back Talim and Sophita.
Give me Talim and I'll be happy
I'm guessing it will be like Tekken Revolution. This sounds pretty cool, hoping for CAS.
