Don’t dream it’s over
After 20 years and five prior outings, Soulcalibur 6 will mark the series’ first appearance on PC. It’s well-tuned to impress those with a more technical eye waiting in that platform’s ranks, too, such is the devotion at Project Soul to maintaining that Teflon-smooth, Dreamcast-esque performance and rounding off every polygonal edge. The game’s most recent preview build appears rock solid throughout each bout, regardless of how many Unreal Engine 4 effects are blossoming and combusting on-screen. Through some clever alchemy – perhaps thanks to fewer postprocessing effects – Soulcalibur VI looks every bit the 2018era Dreamcast game that exists only in your head.
