Guilty Gear Strive has just joined the likes of MultiVersus and few others who can say that anybody can play with everybody with its new release and expanded cross-platform play.
Arc System Works just released Strive on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Xbox Windows store to return the franchise to the platform for the first time in a decade.
On top of the release, Strive is also included as part of the Xbox Game Pass on both console and PC although it unsurprisingly only comes with the base version of the title.
With its launch also comes the rollout of crossplay across every platform now, so PlayStation, Xbox and PC players can battle each other without limitation, which is fantastic to see too.
GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE-™ AVAILABLE NOW FOR XBOX & WINDOWS!
Take advantage of cross-platform gameplay across #Xbox, #PlayStation, and PC platforms starting today.

The last time a Guilty Gear game came to Xbox was Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus all the way back in 2012 though ArcSys did upgrade it to Plus R in 2013.
Xbox players completely missed out on the Xrd era and first 2 years of Strive, but now it’s back again to stay.
The base version of Strive is available to purchase on Xbox for $40 while the bundle including the Season Pass 1 is up for $60 and the largest one including all current DLC for $80.
