Dead Or Alive 6 will have a free-to-play version called Core Fighters

Dead Or Alive 6 free-to-play

Dead or Alive 6 is going to have a free-to-play version, Director Yohei Shimbori has confirmed. This release is planned for sometime after the launch of the full game and will be similar to what Team Ninja did with Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters.

News on the Dead or Alive 6 free-to-play version first appeared when a listing inadvertently showed up on Microsoft's Xbox Store. Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters was quickly deleted but is now confirmed by Yohei Shimbori to Siliconera:

“First of all, about the listing on the Microsoft Store, that was a mistake from the development team. We do have plans to make a free-to-play version, but we haven’t announced when it will be available. We can promise it will be out post-launch of the full game. We can’t talk about it yet since we don’t have concrete details about what will be included yet. But, it will be similar to what we had with Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters.”

So, Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters content is still under wraps, but Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters featured four fighters and unlockable costumes for them, so it should be similar. When I was young, we used to call this a ‘demo'. Go figure.

Dead or Alive 6 releases on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 1, 2019.
