We’re still quite a while away from the Japanese release of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- for PS4 and PS3 on December 4th, and Arc System Works released today a new batch of screenshots focusing mostly on the online features of the game on PS4. Graphics aside, it’s the same on PS3, since cross-play between the two versions is implemented.
As usual for screenshots of this game, they look definitely lovely, with 3D graphics almost looking like Arc System Works’ typical 2D artwork.
We also learn that online multiplayer will feature “ranked match” and “player match,” which is basically an unranked mode where results don’t appear in the leaderboards.
Another very interesting feature is that the game will be able to search for online opponents while we play in Arcade, M.O.M (basically a survival mode) and Training single player modes. It will also be possible to have lobbies with eight people, in which four matches will be performed in parallel, with the option to spectate matches also enabled.
Speaking about offline gameplay, the “Practice” mode will include four different sub-modes: “Tutorial” will teach the basics of the game. “Challenge” will require players to perform combos in the right order. “Mission” will present players with peculiar situations and tasks that need to be correctly executed. “Training” lets you either train freely against a human opponent or the AI, with the option to display button presses.
The developer also promised to introduce the new story mode soon. You can find one teaser picture of it in the gallery below, alongside the rest of the screenshots released today.
