Mechanics

For the first time in the series, there is a meter of special attacks –after filling it, the players can perform a series of devastating hits.

Game modes

Dead or Alive 6 features variety of singleplayer and multiplayer modes. In case of the latter, the players can participate in regular matches with friends and in ranked matches against people from all over the world.

Technical aspects

Dead or Alive 6 presents the action in a new way. The character models feature proportions and animations that are more realistic. During the fight, the fighters are sweating, receiving visible damage (like bruises) and their face changes depending on the situation. The arenas are impressive as well – they are filled with details and things that can be destroyed during the battles. The game supports 4K resolution and it features a new physical engine and a dynamical lighting system.
