As you can see, pre-downloads for the stress test will begin the day before on September 27. Meanwhile, the actual build of the game will be a brand-new build, and different than the E3 2018 build. Where the E3 2018 build had only 13 playable characters, this will come packing 15. In addition to the 15 playable characters, there will be a total of nine different stages in rotation. In other words, Bandai Namco is offering up a considerable look at the game before it launches next month.
Soulcalibur VI is poised to release next month on October 19 via the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. At the moment, a Nintendo Switch release hasn't been announced, but Bandai Namco did tease the fighting game could make its way to the Nintendo platform eventually.
