Fans of beat-em-up Guilty Gear Strive can expect a second season of DLC content thanks to developer Arc System Works.

The studio made the announcement over the weekend during the ARCREVO America Finals event. According to them, the second season will see a further 4 additional fighters added to the game’s roster. In addition, the second season will also include the much-requested addition of cross-platform play between PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

The news also follows the announcement of the final combatant of the game’s first season of DLC later this month. The elegant grim reaper known as Testament will be debuting for Season Pass 1 holders on March 28. They specialise in long-ranged attacks, and also have their demon familiars at their disposal too. Alongside Testament, players will also be able to nab the new White House Reborn stage on the same day.

If that wasn’t enough, a brand new Digital Figure Mode is being added in a free update on March 28. In this mode, you’ll be able to create your own dioramas with scenes, characters, furniture, effects and more. Then you can adjust their expressions and poses, take pictures and share them with your friends.

The final addition in the first season will be the Another Story mode. It offers players new perspectives on the game’s lore and features characters who didn’t appear in the original game. That’ll drop at the end of April. More details on Season 2, meanwhile, will be offered in the coming weeks.

For now, you can check out a trio of trailers for the new Guilty Gear Strive DLC content for yourself down below. The game is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
