Koei Tecmo has announced that Xbox One players with an interest in Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive 5: Last Round can now play the game for free as part of its relaunch on Microsoft’s home console system.
The relaunch has seen the name of the game change to reflect what’s being offered in the free release. The game is now named Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: Core Fighters. As the title implies, the free release contains a small selection of fighters for gamers to play with. Also included is almost every available game mode, which you’ll find on the Xbox store to download.
What isn’t included is the game’s story mode and most of its characters. There are around 30 additional characters that can be bought separately or as part of different sets. It’s also worth noting that any costumes bought on the Xbox 360 version of the game can be transferred to Core Fighters, which is nice, isn’t it?
You’ll also still be able to take the fight online and play against other players from around the world without having to upgrade to the full version of the game. Nifty. To celebrate the relaunch of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: Core Fighters, there’s a special Xbox Live Gold sale that’s taking place from today until December 7th on Xbox One. Full details can be found below. Note: Prices will vary depending on your region and currency. The press release only covered the prices in the United Kingdom, so apologies to our North American and European readers.
