Nintendo revealed more gameplay information about Rex, one of the two leaders of the Liberators in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC, and a powerful Driver that wields two massive greatswords. Rex is the protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and alongside Shulk he formed the Liberators to fight back against Moebius. Rex lost his left eye during a battle a long time ago.
Rex’s class is Master Driver, and Attacker type class that focuses on dealing a lot of damage quickly and build up critical hits. He wields two Flaming Twinswords in battle. Nintendo shared a video showcasing Rex in battle, and you can watch it below.
レックスのクラスは「マスタードライバー」。武器は「焔光の双剣」。大剣の二刀流で無数の斬撃を放つアタッカー。強力なクリティカルですべての敵を粉砕しますも。タレントアーツ「インフィニットブレイド」は、ガードを無効化し、かつ防御力無視のダメージを与えますも！#ゼノブレイド3 #新たなる未来 pic.twitter.com/CcievecxH5

Rex’s Talent Art in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC is Infinity Blade. It nullifies enemy guard and deals damage that ignores enemy defenses. During the animation for Infinity Blade, Rex combines his two greatswords into a massive and powerful sword. All three swords are reminiscent of the Aegis swords in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
In addition to quickly dealing a lot of damage, Rex’s move set seems to benefit from critical hits by recharging Arts cooldown, and also by toppling and launching enemies for powerful combo finishers.
The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC will release on April 25, 2023. Nintendo also revealed a relationship chart for some of the main characters that will appear in Future Redeemed.
