Like Soul Calibur IV before it, Soul Calibur V will be getting DLC support with a load of customisation items for your created historical pugilists (or freakish fighters) and some additional bombastic orchestral tunes to frame your scavvy ring out victories and clanging clashes of steel.

There'll be three DLC packs to start you off, with the first one coming on February 3rd before another two follow up later in the month. There's not just extra costume pieces, but there's classic music from Soul Calibur I, II, and III, Soul Blade (AKA Soul Edge) and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny too. Here be the deets:

Pack 1: Launch Day February 3rd - €1.99

  • Nine exotic customisation items including bikinis, wings and face paints
  • Original music from Soul Blade and SOULCALIBUR (tracks also available individually for €0.99)

Pack 2: Valentine’s Day February 14th - €1.99

  • Nine fearsome customisation items including breast plate, kimono and animal heads
  • Original music from SOULCALIBUR II and III  (tracks also available individually for €0.99)

Pack 3: February 28th - €1.99

  • Nine exclusive customisation items including mask, face paint, camouflage and skull
  • Original music from SOULCALIBUR IV and SOULCALIBUR: Broken Destiny (tracks also available individually for €0.99)

Soul Calibur V will be stepping back onto the stage of history on January 31st in North America and February 3rd in Europe.

Hate to do this but FIRST

And tbh, i'm genuinely looking forward to SCV, Not played Soul Calibur since number 3, but from what i've seen they've only gone up gameplaywise!

Two possible reasons:
1. The game was finished and was already produced on a disc before the DLC was finalized. OR...
2. They want money

We'll find out when it comes out. If it's a couple MBs, then it's probably reason #1. If it's ~100 KBs, it's already on the disc, and it's reason #2.

#5 Games normally release Wedensday in EU and Friday in UK.
So my guess is that DLC Pack 1 will be out in US on January 31 and EU/UK February 1 (Consider PSN normally update on those days).

#10 Yes I was actual also hoping the DLC would be some character.

@1 hate to do FIRST as a comment?... then dont, its pathetic

@9 LOL its no surprise you only saw bikinis considering there is characters who are quite well endowed like... well Ivy really which would probably be bordering on porn in a bikini, although Im not looking forward to seeing Ezio in a mankini.... yuk haunting image.

@12 Speaking of haunting images, how does Voldo in a tarted-up outfit strike you? True, he's usually showing plenty of skin and clad in bondage gear, but I challenge that donning the right frilly brazziere and matching bottom would unnerve human players FAR more than tanned straps and buckles. Paired with the heavy breathing and adult-prop hands?

We have created a monster...

@14 LOL exactly or even his hidden gun? ... but im more worried about where he keeps his sword ;/
@13 Bring out the gimp, the gimps sleeping, well wake him up then... Voldo! LOL he is bizarre enough without being made up as a gimp to be honest but yeah I agree we created a monster im not too sure about this game now I might feel sick playing it, Sony will need an additional health warning when you switch on the PS3
