Arc System Works revealed the latest addition to Guilty Gear Xrd’s playable roster with Elfeldt, who will appear as a DLC character on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Zaregoto shares some more details from this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine.
While we don’t have a closer look at the new character, you can get an idea of what she looks like on the left part of the above image of the magazine preview.
Unlike most of the other characters from the Guilty Gear series who use melee weapons, Elfeldt is a gunner who fights using both rifles and shotguns. She can snipe to deal damage from a long distance and also has some sort of powerful potshot attack.
She also has some unique characteristics that will let you aim while and reload. Arc System Works feel that players will get to enjoy FPS-like controls while playing as her.
Elfeldt will be available as a free bonus DLC for those who purchase first-print copies of the game, and will be purchasable later on for 800 yen. Her and Sin Kiske will both be playable during Tokyo Game Show 2014.
