The action game franchise of Guilty Gear, is one of the best places to start from. Created by Arc Systems, the first game of the franchise dropped in 1998. The subsequent years have seen the release of multiple games under their banner. With their latest release in 2015 becoming one of the best in its short history.

The stakes for Guilty Gear Strive could not be higher. But the franchise is not one to disappoint fans. The game will be marking the 24th release for the franchise. It has been touted to re-invent the series in a completely new way. Therefore it goes without saying that fans are excited.

Guilty Gear Strive: When is it Releasing?

The game will follow the rich footsteps of its predecessors. Fans were first announced about the arrival of the game during Evo 2019. The game was still in works back then, and a release date was not announced. It was later revealed that the game is eyeing a release in 2020.

However, anyone living in this year will agree, that is not a good call. And so enforced by the circumstances the release of Guilty Gear Strive was pushed back. Takashi Yamanaka- the game’s producer, made fans aware of the news. But the wait is not going to belong. As it is set for a release on April 6, 2021.

Guilty Gear Strive: What is the Gameplay?

The game is set to revolutionize the series. While that will become more apparent once it officially releases, there are a few positives already. Firstly it appears the movement of the avatars in-game is going to become a lot more dynamic. A new “Dash” ability is being added. And similarly using the various attacks is going to get a lot more challenging.

Players will have to learn several new motions. The game has also focused on improving the realism for a better experience. One such instance is when a player is thrown at the wall. He is not going to strike and fall immediately but slide down slowly. Similarly, there is going to be a lot of opportunities to earn points with combos and other acting techniques.

Guilty Gear Strive: What is the Story?

The game will begin soon after the events of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator. A conflict does not appear to be far away. It was evident in the last game that a fight between humans and Gears might break out soon. And though there is limited information about the upcoming season, that fight is supposed to take center stage. But the question remains, whether this fight will be enough to bring peace.

Guilty Gear Strive: Is there a Trailer?

Fans can keep themselves busy with the trailers about the recent season. The first one dropped in August 2020 and is available widely.

Guilty Gear Strive is going to be an epic game. It is supposed to be the culmination of all these years of storytelling. So the creators might give fans one last blast of adrenaline from this franchise. Certainly, the trailer proves that it is going to be the case.
