SoulCalibur VI Network Test

Bandai Namco just launched the SoulCalibur VI Network Test this week! Featuring a playable demo of the game, you can play as a number of characters in the latest entry of the prestigious SoulCalibur series!

What the demo entails.

The SoulCalibur VI Network Test includes 16 playable characters.

  • Mitsurugi
  • Taki
  • Maxi
  • Voldo
  • Sophitia
  • Siegfried
  • Ivy
  • Kilik
  • Xianghua
  • Astaroth
  • Nightmare
  • Talim
  • Tira
  • Zasalamel
  • Groh
  • Geralt (The Witcher)

The game gives you access only to Ranked Play. Perhaps this is to give players a fair chance to test out the new mechanics without spending hours in a dojo learning the best way to play the game. You can also select Options, which greets you to a remix of Sophitia’s theme from the original SoulCalibur, Wings of Faith. Also, you can select a dual-audio option for Japanese voices. Once you’re in the game, select your network adjustments, such as connection level and region. Once you’re done, pick your character and enter the fray!

SoulCalibur II Review

Impressions.

This game is absolutely beautiful. The new, beautiful graphics in this game completely stunned me when I got to playing. I played several rounds with Siegfried. As I imagine with most characters, Siegfried features a number of moveset changes. Therefore, keep that in mind as you bash your enemies from a distance.

The pace of this game is much faster than more recent entries, the super attacks return, and there’s a new ability that slows down time so you can use a powerful attack. It’s a new mechanic I’m still learning, but I found it to be quite interesting. That said, the game plays amazingly so far.

SoulCalibur VI launches October 19, 2018. It will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to preorder your copy now!
