Guilty Gear Strive rocks onto Xbox Game Pass today

By Luke Albigés,

ArcSys' stunning fighting game Guilty Gear Strive is the latest title to join the Xbox Game Pass library, bringing its awesome anime action to the service after originally launching for PlayStation and PC almost two years ago.

Guilty Gear Strive marks the cult fighting game series' first foray onto Xbox in over a decade, and a lot has changed in that time. Arc's new 3D visuals that mimic anime art make the game look stunning, plus there are plenty of new characters to try out and systems to learn, so what better time to jump back into Guilty Gear?

Guilty Gear Strive launches into Game Pass today

Strive will comfortably hold its own after jumping in among the best games on Game Pass, too — it's a superb fighter evolved and improved over several iterations. Every character on the roster looks and feels unique, but without reaching Blazblue levels of gimmicks and gauges, meaning beginners can jump in and start making impressive stuff happen while experts have access to all manner of systems to help push their play to the next level. The achievements weren't live when the game dropped, but they should be up now!
