E3 2018: SoulCalibur 6 Release Date Announced For PS4, Xbox One, And PC

Bandai Namco has revealed the release date for SoulCalibur VI at E3 2018, the latest installment in the 3D fighting game franchise. The game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19, 2018.

SoulCalibur VI features more of the weapons-focused combat the series is known for, and Bandai Namco is demoing the game’s story mode at E3. It’s set in the 16th century, and players are sent on “a voyage of discovery” as they uncover events from the original SoulCalibur “to learn hidden truths.”

The game blends some of the series’ favorite characters with guest characters like Geralt of Rivia, from The Witcher series, who will even be featured on the game’s cover. Witcher developer CD Projekt Red is working closely with Bandai to assure he looks and feels like the real Geralt. Watch him in action in the gameplay video above.

When it releases, SoulCalibur VI will also be available in a Collector’s Edition that comes with a 12″ Sophita figure, a 120-page book, a metal case with built-in soundbox, soundtrack CD, and the game’s season pass.
