SoulCalibur VI’s final character for Season Pass 2 is Hwang

Bandai Namco has announced that the final character for SoulCalibur VI’s second season pass will be the swordsman Hwang, who has not been an official playable character since SoulCalibur III. If you do not have the season pass you will be able to buy Hwang as an individual character. He will be available from December 2nd. Hwang follows Setsuka who was released for SoulCalibur VI back in August. A trailer showing gameplay of Hwang can be viewed below.

Sword-y fighting game SoulCalibur VI launched in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, reviving the dormant sword-y fighting game series with a few tweaks and changes to its popular formula. Version 2.00 was a big overhaul of the game’s balance, introducing new moves for all characters, adding new combos and ways to overcome sticky situations.

Two new battle mechanics were also added:

  • The Soul Attack, a strengthened strike that can turn the tide of a battle.
  • The Resist Impact, the ultimate defense move capable of repelling any attack including the currently unblockable ones.

In our review for SoulCalibur VI, Dom wrote:

SoulCalibur VI is a fantastic looking entry in the series, but beyond that feels like something of a missed opportunity. The core combat remains as vibrant, weighty and enjoyable as ever, but the Reversal Edge adds in an element of chance that feels at odds with what most fighting games set out to achieve. The two interminably dull story modes don’t help either, with players left to rely on the the straightforward arcade and online modes for their kicks.
