Dead Or Alive 6

It looks like Koei Tecmo is utilizing the drug dealer method when it comes to Dead or Alive 6. You know, giving fans a little taste of the game for free and then charging them once they’ve become hooked. The free-to-play model has worked exceptionally well for many games, though most have been in the battle royale genre. However, Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters has included a few features from the main, paid game for those curious about it.


I’m always curious to see what’s included when a game boasts options to play a part of the experience for free. In this case, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo have offered up a decent number of modes and characters to take for a test ride. The modes available in Core Fighters include traditional online battles (ranked), versus, time attack, and quest modes. Outside of this, a portion of the story mode will also be playable. The information for the game details an “introduction” to this portion of the game. DOA Central will also be explorable. This area is a hub for “everything from wardrobe and music to the library and theater.”


For playable characters, there is only a handful available in Core Fighters. Bass, Hitomi, Kasumi, and Diego are the four people you’re able to test drive during your free-to-play sessions. Considering the modes available to play through, and the characters available, there’s a decent amount of content to more than get your feet wet.

Dead or Alive 6 released on February 25 and is currently available for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Core Fighters free-to-play version of the game becomes available today. You can head to the game’s Steam page to install this free version by heading here. The full version of the game, plus bonus content, is available for $59.99.
