While the full version of Dead or Alive 6 celebrated a milestone on April 14, 2020 with the last batch of DLC, the free version is also going to have something special going on. The official Twitter account revealed a series of Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters free characters weekends is about to begin on April 18, 2020. For five weeks in a row, until May 17, 2020, people will be able to test out even more characters for a limited time.
These Dead or Alive 6 free weekends are being offered up as a means of celebrating over three million people downloading this trial version of the game. Normally, it comes with only four characters people can use, which are Bass, Diego, Hitomi, and Kasumi. Whenever a free weekend occurs, people get to use those additional characters temporarily over that weekend.
Here is the schedule showing which additional Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters free characters will be available each week. Even some of the newer DLC characters, like Rachel and Tamaki, are included.
- April 18-19, 2020: Hayate, La Mariposa, Marie Rose, Nyotengu, and Zack.
- April 25-26, 2020: Ayane, Jann Lee, Leifang, Phase 4, and Tina.
- May 2-3, 2020: Hayabusa, Honoka, Mila, Momiji, and Rig.
- May 9-10, 2020: Brad, Christie, Eliot, Nico, and Rachel.
- May 16-17, 2020: Bayman, Helena, Kokoro, Raidou, and Tamaki.
In each case, five characters will be available to sample. You’ll just have access to those additional characters alongside the four that Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters comes with. Don’t expect any extra DLC to also appear.
People might want to stop by for at least the last weekend, given how recently Tamaki was released. She only just debuted in March 2020 and marks a situation where a Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation heroine made her way over to the full game.
Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
