June 1 on PS4 or buyable for $30 (DLC included)
The “Legendary Pack”, which will launch alongside Ultimate Showdown on June 1, will add alternate skins for every character on the roster, replicating the classic “Virtua” look that took the arcade scene by storm back in 1993. While this turns back the clock for classic characters such as Pai, Wolf, and Sarah, it’s going to be fun to retroactively see latter-day fighters such as Vanessa, El Blaze, and Eileen recreated in beautiful, box-headed glory.
In addition to the retro skins, the Legendary pack will also include a “Classic” U.I., which replaces the redesigned health bars and on-screen prompts with those of the original release. The Legendary Pack will retail for around $10. It bears repeating that Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown will also be part of June’s PlayStation Plus offerings. Once the title leaves PS+. it will retail for $30, which includes the Legendary Pack.
Sony Interactive Entertainment and new esports venture RTS have jointly acquired the Evolution Championship Series
Sony’s statement said the Cannons will “ensure that Evo remains a one-of-a-kind, grassroots competitive platform for fighting game players and fans around the globe.” None of the parties to the deal revealed the cost of the acquisition, and Sony and Endeavor are likewise silent on their stakes and ownership split in the RTS venture.
Evo Online will take place Aug. 6-8 and Aug. 13-15 as an open format tournament, offering free entry to players in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The tournament lineup features Tekken 7, Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, and Guilty Gear Strive, which launches in June.
“We want to reaffirm that harassment or abuse of any kind has no place within Evo or any of our future events, and we’re taking every precaution to make sure members of our community will always be treated with the respect, dignity, and decency you deserve,” reads the letter.
Also very important to note. @EVO is still open to all platforms. The teams at PlayStation and RTS are enabling us to continue working with our community to support fighting games. https://t.co/NKMQUSvkfj— Mark Julio (マークマン) (@MarkMan23) March 18, 2021
