Soulcalibur VI is coming out this fall, according to new information by publisher Bandai Namco. The big announcement today was the games official release date, along with the games planned special editions mapped out for players to consider purchasing.

First off, three versions of the game will be available, the standard edition, as always, will be priced at $59.99 upon launch. The other two editions this time around are named the Deluxe and Collector’s Edition.

The Deluxe Edition, priced at $99.99, will include a season pass of the game, which contains three upcoming DLC characters and two armor packs. You also get a free bonus character for getting the games season pass. On top of that, players will obtain two physical goodies, a steel case box and the games soundtrack on disk.

The Collectors Edition, priced at $149.99, contains all of the previous bonuses plus a 120-page artbook and a 12” collectable statue of fighter Sophitia, all found in a lovely collectors edition box.

Soul Calibur VI also saw a new trailer released just for E3 this year, detailing a bit of the games story. The trailer didn’t really show off any new surprises other than already announced characters interacting with each other, save for the series guest character, Geralt of Rivia from CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher series. The action did, however, show off some of the moves of favorites such as Xianghua, Ivy and Maxi, along with newcomer Grøh. Those who are attending E3 this year will be able to play a demo of the game, while learning more about the intricacies of the games storyline.

Soul Calibur VI will be available on October 19th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam, with a guest appearance from Geralt of Rivia.
