BECOME THE HERO OF YOUR OWN LEGEND IN SOULCALIBUR VI’s SECOND STORY MODE TITLED… LIBRA OF SOUL
Tira Returns to the Stage of History As a Special Season Pass Bonus Fighter
A great story mode can provide much needed context for rivalries in fighting games and SOULCALIBUR VI will be delivering double the drama with two story modes. Libra Of Soul is the second story mode in SOULCALIBUR VI, joining Chronicle of Souls mode. In Libra Of Soul mode, players will be able to create their own custom fighter from scratch before roaming the world in a quest to stop a new evil mastermind at work to gather Soul Edge shards. Along the way, players will come up against both characters from across the main storyline, and warriors created by the community, fighting in a variety of rule-specific showdowns which will shape their own path.
Players will be able to create their own unique characters through thousands of different combinations, choosing from 16 races, including human, lizard, or even living skeleton, before customizing the size, facial features, hairstyle, clothes, armor, and…. weapons & fighting style!
Additionally, Tira, the Bird of Death, is also joining the stage of history as a bonus character for those who purchase the SOULCALIBUR VI Season Pass. Tira will also be available as a stand-alone DLC for those who choose to purchase her character separately.
Tira, an expert wielder of her Ring Blade named Eiserne Drossel, fights using her own Dance of Death style. Trained by the mysterious Birds of Passage group of assassins, Tira abandoned the group after its leader went mad. Alone and angry, Tira, travels across the world, slaughtering anyone who gets in her way – taking great pleasure in the trail of blood in her wake.
