Update: The official Soul Calibur Twitter account has confirmed that Tira will be included as a bonus for the season pass. She is NOT a pre-order bonus. Tira will be available as a standalone DLC character too.

Earlier: Gamescom is currently in full swing over in Europe showing off new games and trailers where we learned that Tira would be joining the cast of Soul Calibur 6 as its first announced DLC character.

We previously knew that a Season Pass was on the way for the new Soul Calibur title though the wording about the Soul Calibur 3 favorite's status in that pass is a bit confusing at the moment.

Bandai Namco first stated on Twitter that purchasing the Season Pass would unlock Tira as a bonus character, or she could be purchased as a standalone character. They then went on to clarify that "Tira is available as a bonus character in the SC6 Season Pass. Pre-order the season pass to get Tira on day one as well three additional playable characters and armor packs in the future."

At first glance, this may look as though players will need to pre-order the Season Pass in order to obtain Tira, but we don't believe that is the case. Promotional material before listed three characters plus one bonus as a part of the pass plus their previous statement suggests that she will indeed be in the pass if you buy it after launch.

Pre-order pages for the Season Pass do not have much information on what's included with them — if the pages exist at all — though we do know that it will sell for $29.99 USD and launch with the game on October 19th.

We've reached out to Bandai Namco for further clarification about Tira and the Season Pass, and we'll update this article with any new information provided. You can check out Bandai Namco's Tweets for yourself to see what you make of them.
