A special PlayStation 4 demo for the upcoming Koei Tecmo fighting game Dead or Alive 6 is coming to the PlayStation Store. If you’re a member of PS Plus, you can download and test out Dead or Alive 6 for free starting tomorrow, January 12, and lasting until January 14 at 7:00 a.m. (PST) and 10:00 a.m. (EST).
PS4 Demo for Dead or Alive 6 Begins January 12
Addressing the beta, the Dead or Alive 6 website specifies:
“The Online Beta will be exclusive to PS Plus subscribers through the PlayStation
As noted by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja, the content included in the demo is extremely limited with the only accessible mode being Online Versus. Fights in this mode will all take place in one set location, the Dead or Alive Colosseum, and the only characters available for use are Kasumi, Ayane, Hayabusa, Hayate, and Diego. This makes sense, as the demo serves as a way to encourage gamers to purchase the game.
If you fall in love with Dead or Alive 6 after playing the demo, there’s plenty of time to pre-order a copy before the game’s release date of March 1. Alternatively, if you don’t own a PlayStation 4, you’ll be happy to hear that Dead or Alive 6 will also be available on Xbox One and Windows PC.
As of right now, there’s no word as to whether or not Xbox One and Windows PC owners will also get a Dead or Alive 6 demo prior to the game’s release. It’s definitely possible, and we’ll be sure to post an update if a demo is announced for either of those two platforms. Until then, PlayStation 4 users should take advantage of the free Dead or Alive 6 demo between January 12 and January 14.
