Gaming News Guilty Gear Strive: Game Modes and Details
What better way to ring in the new year than with Guilty Gear Strive details? For those of you well acquainted with the series, y’all know what I’m talking about. For those who have never played GG… y’all need to fix that ASAP! Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R got rollback, and is on Steam for a generous $14.99. The lovely folks at Arc System Works dropped a game modes trailer for their highly anticipated new installment to the GG series, Guilty Gear Strive. So while the Beast reacts, I am here to put fingers to keyboard, give y’all a brief rundown.
Guilty Gear Strive Game Modes as a whole!
Guilty Gear Strive will feature a variety of Modes to accommodates both hardcore fans of the series, and new comers. What’s important to note about Strive is that it has developed a new innovative battle system. So that players can pick up the game quicker than usual. There’s always been this notion of “in order to play GG, a needed level of skill is a must” associated with GG. It’s always had a thriving community of niche players. This new system aims to change all that, and as hardcore fans, we here at Beast Gamer Kuma are happy to see Arc System Works welcoming the newbies with open arms. The Mode’s have also been designed for players looking to flex their skill, play solo, or get heavily invested in GG story and lore.
For you who flex their skills in GG looking to initiate or demand the salty run-back. Training Mode allows players to set up match specific scenarios, as well as combo practice to boss up and polish their skills. Online mode is where players can square up with others from around the globe to rack up points and move through the ranks. Online Lobbies allow players to customize their avatars, create 9 player rooms, and the new waiting system adjusts to players levels, so a newbie won’t have consistent run-ins with an OG. And fear not you PS5 owners! No need to buy 2 copies, for there is cross play between PS5 and PS4. If you laid the smack-down and want to relive your moment of glory, there is a Replay Theater for you to be reminded of your awesomeness at your own convenience.
Those who aren’t too crazy about games having more online features than offline ones (*coughs* me *coughs*), you can skip the lobby and jump right into any of these modes. There is a Tutorial Mode to get acquainted with the new system and graduate to Mission mode, where they learn combos to polish their skills. For those looking for some story with their beat-downs, there’s Arcade Mode, where players square up against the CPU while playing through a fully voiced story. Players can also make the Survival Mode leader-boards by beating as many powerful opponents as they can.
More than expected:
Last but not least, those looking to follow the in depth story, grab a bag of popcorn and head over to Story Mode, where players watch the events of Strive unfold. New to the series and don’t know what the French toast is going on? Or what the hockey puck these random terms mean? Fear not! Strive has gotcha covered with GG World, an archive of GG essential terms, and the entire story’s chronological order. And no need to get confused about who hates who, who’s married to who, and all that good good, because Strive has a nifty correlation map that identifies characters’ relationships to each other. And then there is the Gallery, where players can enjoy the breathtaking artwork GG is famous for. So no need to spend an on the GG Fandom Wiki.
So there you have it, this is a rundown of what Strive is offering gamers. I’m very hype about this, given all the content Strive is offering alone. so keep your eyes peeled for our review of Guilty Gear Strive in April!
