Today via press release Koei Tecmo had detailed the Pre-Order bonuses and combat styles for the upcoming release of  Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. It appears the Pre-order bonus is a set of six DLC costumes and will be available to those who Pre-Order from Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games, and GameStop. These will include  the White Swordsman and Golden Swordsman costumes for Guts, the Golden Hawk and Black Hawk costumes for Griffith,  and the Pirate and Blue Stripe costumes for Schierke,

Here are some screenshots of the DLC costumes:

Here is a bit more about the combat straight from the press release:

A lone mercenary and the series’ main protagonist, Guts wields an impressive array of powerful weapons to choose from, and each alters the pace of gameplay. For example, utilizing his massive Dragonslayer Great Sword allows for devastating attacks, and players will subsequently feel the weight of the weapon throughout battle. Similarly, players can enjoy customized playstyles tailored to the other playable characters, like Griffith’s rapid sword attacks and Schierke’s magical powers.

Utilizing a vast array of different weapon styles, players will slash and smash their way through gripping battles in Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Attacks become more ferocious as a fight rages on, allowing players to smash monsters against walls or slash them in two with a single strike! However, during the course of his adventures Guts encounters creatures known as Apostles – giant demonic monsters that possess deadly attacks. Unlike other enemies, typical battle strategies will not work on these beasts, and players must make swift tactical decisions in order to take them down. These exciting sequences aim to perfectly capture the tense, action-packed style of Berserk.

There are also some new screenshots and trailers  for your viewing pleasure:

 

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk will launch on February 21, 2017 for the PlayStation4 phyiscally. It will also launch digitally on the PlayStationVita and on Windows PC via Steam.

 

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
