Arc System Works recently revealed the Guilty Gear Strive release date for PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam. An official FAQ page (via Gematsu) confirmed two important details about the upcoming fighter on consoles and PC. Guilty Gear Strive will support cross play between the PS4 and PS5 versions but not the Steam version. Guilty Gear Strive will also have a free upgrade for owners of the PS4 version for PS5. PS4 disc owners will not be able to upgrade to the PS5 version if the console is a PS5 digital edition. Guilty Gear Strive PS4 will be playable via backward compatibility as well but it will be limited to the PS4 version’s performance and support a maximum output of 1080p.
