Even more expected features are appearing in Dead or Alive 6, thanks to the April 25, 2019 update. Once people download patch 1.04, they’ll have access to things you would have thought would be in the game immediately, cosmetic additions that are a nice bonus to have, and quality of life adjustments. In addition, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo are thanking people for playing by doling out 100,000 Player Points to everyone who have the game, download this update, and play it before May 13, 2019.
The Dead or Alive 6 leaderboards are probably the biggest inclusion. Previously, when playing Ranked matches, you would see both your position and your opponent’s position before it began. However, there weren’t any you could consult outside of those fights. Once this update is applied, people will be able to see where they stand.
There are both paid and free cosmetic additions to Dead or Alive 6. New animations are here, for example. Ayane, Lisa, Rig, and Tina now have new entry ones, while Honoka, Mila, Nyotengu, and Zack can behave differently after they win. You can get 15 Stage BGM pieces, for more songs. Also, should people wish to pay $19.99 for them (or purchase the $92.99 Season Pass 1), they can get a Pirates of the 7 Seas Vol. 1 costume set with outfits for Ayane, Bass, Christie, Diego, Hayate, Hitomi, Honoka, La Mariposa, Mila, Nyotengu, Rig, Tina, and Zack.
Here is the trailer for the Dead or Alive 6 pirate costumes.
The other additions in the patch mainly involve balancing and bug fixes. However, two other quality of life changes have been made. One keeps Free Training settings from resetting after you Throwdown. The other gives you Player Points instead of Costme Parts if you already earned all costumes for the character you are currently using.
Dead or Alive 6 and Dead or Alive 6: Core Fighters are available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
