Arc System Works made a handful of announcements this weekend for Guilty Gear -Strive-, which is getting a fan-favorite boss as a playable character for the first time this month. Testament was announced as the next DLC character, and will launch for Season Pass 1 owners on March 28, followed by an individual purchase option on March 31. 


Season Pass owners can also look forward to the White House Reborn stage on March 28, and there’s also a new Digital Figure mode coming as part of a free update on the same day. The final item in Season Pass 1 will be “Another Story,” which delivers an alternate perspective on the game’s lore and highlights different characters when it launches around the end of April. Check out a trailer for Testament and more while we wait.
