Guest characters have been a staple of Soul Calibur titles for over 15 years now, but it's been rarer to see them included as DLC options for the newer titles up to this point.

Soul Calibur 6's new DLC character, Nier Automata's 2B, is now available across all platforms with PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC for those who have the Season Pass or wish to buy her individually.

2B is the second guest character to come to the game after The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia, and she is also Soul Calibur 6's second DLC character with Tira plus two more fighters to come who have yet to be announced.

The futuristic YorHa android fights using a variety of weaponry found in her game of origin including her signature swords, spear and fist weapons which she can instantly switch between to keep the opponent on their toes and guessing. 2B can also use her Pod companion to shoot and use certain skills — she even comes equipped with a second Critical Edge that causes her to self destruct with the opponent, and it blows off her skirt like Nier.

Her release comes a day after Soul Calibur 6 saw the Version 1.10 update drop for the game which adjusts a number of character creation and online systems along with other bug and general fixes.

2B is now available on all platforms for $5.99 USD as standalone DLC or part of Soul Calibur 6's Season Pass for $29.99. You can check out some gorgeous 4k screenshots of 2B in action in the gallery below courtesy of PC Master Race along with her full move set in action after the jump via Games in HD.
