Guilty Gear Strive‘s newest DLC character from Season Pass 1 is Baiken. Guilty Gear Strive from Arc System Works and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe arrived on PS5, PS4, and PC via Steam last year. It has since added Jack-O as DLCGoldlewis Dickinson, and Happy Chaos as DLC. If you’ve not gotten Guilty Gear Strive yet, it is one of the best games of the year. Read my review of the PS5 version here. Read my PS4 and PS5 comparison here. Today, Arc System Works revealed the Guilty Gear Strive version 1.13 update patch notes. The download size is 960.3MB on PS4. Watch the Guilty Gear Strive Baiken gameplay trailer below:
