GUILTY GEAR OFFICIAL sur Twitter : “【お知らせ】 『GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE-』DLCキャラクター第5弾「#テスタメント」が3月28日(月)より参戦！ キャラクタートレーラー映像を公開しました！ ▼ご視聴はこちら https://t.co/jysTVuBdnv #GGST #ギルティギア https://t.co/VKYsb4MtCW” / Twitter
Testament first appeared in the original Guilty Gear on PlayStation 1 in 1998 as the penultimate boss, and was originally a villain planning to resurrect Justice. Testament is a recurrent, iconic character of the series since then. However, Testament wasn’t playable in GG Xrd, so this GGST DLC announcement is a big return for older fans of the series. Testament specializes in long-reach attacks by wielding a scythe, and in long-range attacks with familiars.
Testament was once human, before being surgically modified into a Gear.
Under the control of the Conclave, they worked to revive Justice. After the events of the Second Holy Order Selection Tournament, however, they regained their sense of self. Feeling guilty, they hid in the Forest of Demons, before resolving to protect the half-Gear Dizzy from the humans who pursued her. Although this began as a way to atone for their sins, it ended up bringing back their human sensibility.
They now live with the elderly couple who once took care of Dizzy. This new life has brought them peace of mind, and they now enjoy their share of happiness.
Oh four new characters are coming too and a new stage..
The developers also announced that cross-platform play will soon be coming to Guilty Gear Strive as well as 4 more characters in Season 2.
At the same time, ArcSys confirmed Strive’s first story expansion is scheduled to release in late April and will focus on the characters who didn’t appear in the main story mode like May, Faust and Ramlethal. The new feature will be titled ‘Another Story.’
GGST Season Pass 1 additional content “Another Story” will be delivered in late April!
Many characters that did not appear in the main story have appeared!
Please look forward to it ✨#GuiltyGearStrive pic.twitter.com/Iu0Umc6S8e— ArcSystemWorks ➡️ #GuiltyGearStrive available now! (@ArcSystemWorksU) March 20, 2022
