“It plays great, looks fantastic has a ton of unique characters and has something for casual and hardcore fans alike. The much laughed at online lobby system even shines in the real release. With the superb netcode and ranking system doing a great job of letting lower skill players hang out in beginner rooms to play amongst themselves,” our review for the Guilty Gear Strive read back at launch for the game.
The game originally announced back at EVO 2019 shook its fanbase as a new installment is on the way from Arc System Works. Originally, the title was slated for a late 2020 release, but with the developing COVID-19 pandemic pushed its release to a new window in April 2021. Even still, it was not until June did the game officially arrive. Since then, the game across PC & PlayStation welcomed multiple content seasons and continued support to this day.
In a surprise reveal this week, Guilty Gear Strive is now available for Xbox alongside Windows as well. Not to mention the game is also out for Xbox Game Pass also. The announcement came from the official Japanese Guilty Gear Twitter page, and this reveal applies to Xbox in North America too.
“‘Guilty Gear -Strive-’ is the latest entry in the critically acclaimed Guilty Gear fighting game franchise. Created by Daisuke Ishiwatari and developed by Arc System Works, “Guilty Gear -Strive-“ upholds the series’ reputation for groundbreaking hybrid 2D/3D cell-shaded graphics and intense, rewarding gameplay,” the description from official Xbox page reads.
