As we mentioned about change in playing style, newest Samurai Shodown will deprive new and season players of "Combo", which is an intentional move by developers to gradually make you skilled in combat other than relying on button mashing.

In fact, relying on the latter and being impatient in a face-off can cost you dearly if you are not paying attention. So, learn from mistakes you made in each battle and hone on striking at a precise time to be far more effective in a fight.

One core gameplay elements distinct to the franchise is Rage Gauge that gets heated up for each time you take a hit and when it is at max Rage, players get bonus attack damage for every single blow they can land on their opponent in a match.

Other than that and a Weapon Flipping Technique to disarm your rival, you can now deliver a Lightning Blade attack by performing Rage Explosion. Once used, it will take away your Rage Gauge and you are to survive with skillful moves.

It looks like SNK has added a Dojo Mode for players to "git gud" before they go butting heads in multiplayer. Through a revolutionary deep learning AI, your play style will be analyzed from offline or story mode playthrough.

Thus, the game creates a simulation with your unique way of playing into a CPU-controlled "ghost" character. You can either send your ghost fighter into clouds to challenge other players or even go up against a top professional from around the world.

Over a decade may have changed a few aspects of the series but a heavy influence of Japanese culture remains intact in its core to unleash a new era of samurai warriors upon us once again with a brand-new installment.

Despite being a weapon-based fighting game series, Samurai Shodown always relied heavily on a plot and upcoming 2019 game is no different. Set prior to the events of Samurai Spirits from 1993, this reboot can become another hit for staying true to its heart.

World War Z Season One DLC Roadmap

Saber Interactive reveals their post-launch free DLC roadmap for World War Z in coming months on 2019.

Although involvement of developer Saber Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive in the third-person shooter title World War Z was a bit assuring, many were doubtful whether or not it would turn out to be another zombie game.

After ruling over UK sales charts following launch, WWZ has most recently sold over one million copies within first week of its release. It got developers all worked up to reveal their roadmap for upcoming free DLC updates to show their appreciation.

Starting from June, a new mission will take survivors to Tokyo where they would come across a new type of zombie that spits a deadly virus. On top of that, these particular enemies can come back by resurrecting themselves if not dispatched properly.

Judging by their appearances, these undead were most probably subjected to some sort of experimentation forcefully before or after a global pandemic that granted them abilities that are stuff of nightmares compared to its brethren.

RELATED: World War Z PvPvZ Mode

Then in June, another free update will add six-skull difficulty setting, which is suggested to be an extreme difficult level but it comes with bonus cosmetic items and exclusive rewards for dipping your toes into intense difficulty setting.

July would deliver a new weekly challenge mode that would bring some additional cosmetic accessories and useful items. Obviously, WWZ players on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would have access to these post-launch DLC updates.

RELATED: World War Z Launch Trailer

Aside from these highlighted offerings, Saber Interactive studio also planing for features like a wave-based survival mode, ability for anyone to join private lobbies or switch between player classes while in PvPvZ matches and more.

World War Z post-launch DLC schedule seems pretty jam-packed and will surely keep survivors busy trying to outlive the dead. Despite initially having some connectivity issues, the game has successfully crawled back onto its feet again.
