Thanks to two publication sites, we learn from Soul Calibur VI’s producer Motohiro Okubo that there will be another alternate single-player mode, more multiplayer modes among others and how there will be new characters and episodes involving sub-stories.
Highlights from the interview include tidbits like, as you progress through the story mode, sub-story or timelines of other characters will be unlocked. Additionally, Soul Calibur VI is said to include new characters that are involved in the story mode along with new “episodes” that haven’t been revealed.
Soul Calibur VI will still follow Kilik, as noted before by Okubo, as he goes on his journey to seal Soul Edge. Moreover, there is going to be another story mode that’s in preparation right now. Not only was the aforesaid mentioned during The Koalition interview Okubo also reiterated the same information and then some on publication site Newsweek:
“In terms of other modes, there is the alternative story mode that I mentioned before and the character creator that is a key element of SoulCalibur. That’s going to be in there, we don’t know how it’s going to look yet. There will be online modes, of course, but how all of this is going to play out, I’d say stay tuned.”
Taking it back to the story mode and The Koalition interview, Okubo confirms that Geralt of Rivia is a key factor in this narrative. However, he encourages everyone to experience this firsthand by playing the game.
Furthermore, there will be different online modes to play, but the producer notes that more news on that will come later. Okubo also mentioned that there are more modes to be revealed but gave no EST.
And lastly, Okubo touched on the volume of the campaigns (plural with an “s”) and how they’ll hold the most content in a Soul Calibur game to date:
“In the single-player campaigns, we’ve prepared so much gameplay I think it’s probably gonna be the most volume of content we’ve seen in any Soulcalibur to date, so I’m very excited about that.”
