THE DEFENDER OF THE KINGDOM RETURNS TO THE STAGE OF HISTORY
HILDE RETURNS IN THE SEASON TWO DLC PASS
SoulCalibur VI‘s release revitalized the entire franchise; so much so that another DLC season was announced back at EVO 2019. That reveal not only brought another guest character, but it brought back another franchise classic fighter in Cassandra. Now the second member of season two is another familiar face of the franchise in Hilde.
Hilde first appeared in the franchise in SoulCalibur IV, with her going on a journey to find Siegfried and end the corruption of her countrymen. SoulCalibur VI, however, is a retelling of the events between Soul Edge and SoulCalibur, so Hilde’s role is in the story is essentially changed. Chances are she may have heard of Soul Edge earlier than before and decides to prevent the corruption of her people ahead of time.
Hilde still has her short sword and spear and appears to move quicker than her previous counterparts. These weapons are perfect for controlling the range of combat and with her improved movements, Hilde may be a more beginner-friendly character. There’s no word on when the season two pass will be available.
The current roster, now with DLC is as follows:
Haohmaru (DLC guest character)
2B (DLC guest character)
Azwel (new character)
