Koei Tecmo America and Team Ninja are pleased to announce that Dead or Alive 6 has launched its online beta test for PlayStation Plus subscribers on the PlayStation 4 gaming system. The fighting game’s online beta test is exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers via the PlayStation Store. It will be playable from January 11th at 7:00am PST and be available until January 14th at 6:59am PST. This early taste of the intense fighting action in Dead or Alive 6 will only be around for a few days, but the game’s launch isn’t too far off.

Players participating in the online beta will get to play Online Versus mode. Only the Dead or Alive Colosseum stage will be available, with five characters. One of them is one of the most anticipated of the newcomers. It is “The Uncrowned Street Hero”, Diego. The other four characters available in the online beta are well known past Dead or Alive characters, including Ayane, Kasumi, Hayabusa, and Hayate.

Dead or Alive 6 is being developed for the Windows PC (Steam), Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4. It is set for a worldwide launch on the first of March, 2019. The press release also says that an online survey will be available to get feedback from players about the game. For newcomers just joining the series, a new “How to Play” section has been added to the official website. In that section, new players can find both a tutorial on techniques, as well as a move list.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
