Soulcalibur VI producer Motohiro Okubo has revealed the upcoming fighter will offer additional single-player modes outside of the main campaign, including one covering the series’ expansive timeline.
In a recent interview with Famitsu (via Ryokutya2089), Okubo explained Soulcalibur VI will feature a new mode called Soul Chronicle, which will take place between A.D. 1583 and 1590 to piece together the franchise’s story. As previously announced, the game will act as a prequel to the original Soulcalibur, but it will also cover events that take place throughout the series.
In this additional mode, players will experience illustrated and 3D cutscenes for each available fighter, with the ability to fight a few battles with certain characters. The single-player feature will give newcomers and seasoned fans an overall look at the major characters and their arcs throughout the franchise.
In addition to the standard story mode and Soul Chronicle, the producer also teased another major single-player mode will be available. However, he didn’t divulge any details about who to expect from it.
Fans should learn more about the mysterious new mode closer to the game’s launch in the fall. One of the more exciting reveals was the previous announcement that The Witcher’s Geralt will be a guest character in the upcoming fighter.
Soulcalibur VI will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19th.
