"Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator" is the follow up to Arc System Works' "Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign" released back in 2014. The game is developed using "Unreal Engine 3" and uses cel-shaded 3D models. It features 17 returning characters with 6 new characters joining the battle. The story mode continues where Xrd: Sign's tale left off, players are treated to a full cinematic movie experience. The story mode does not feature any player versus computer matches, which might surprise veteran fighting game players.
Beginners can go through the tutorial mode to learn combat techniques and match strategies. "Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator" also includes a stylish mode option for beginners, which allows them to execute flashy moves and combos with minimal input. The PC version sadly lacks the Lobby function found on the console versions.
