Online lobbies are now available in Dead or Alive 6 with update Version 1.03b

Just over a month since the game's initial release

Update: Patch Version 1.03b is now live for Dead or Alive 6 which adds in online lobby functionality for up to 16 players. You can find the patch notes for Ver. 1.03a and 1.03b after the jump.

Dead or Alive 6 saw a delay before its initial set release date of Valentine's Day to the first day of March to receive some extra polish, but players have been waiting for a month past that release now to play online with their friends or others outside of ranked matches.

Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo have announced that online lobby functionality will be coming to DOA6 this Thursday, April 11, as part of the upcoming Version 1.03b update.

The new patch will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam though roll out times will vary by platform and region location. The developers haven't stated if there's going to be anything else included with the update.

Its counterpart Version 103a update launched on March 29 bringing balance changes, bug fixes and new DLC though Team Ninja revealed that they needed a bit more time to tweak the lobby system and that it would miss its original March release window.

Lobbies had been accessible in the PC version of Dead or Alive 6 previously by using Steam's friend system to place them inside the rooms though they were quite prone to glitches and bugs.

In other recent DOA news, Koei Tecmo is jumping into the fighting game eSports circuit trend with the Dead or Alive World Championship where a total prize pool of over $90,000 will be up for grabs beginning at The Mixup in France later this month.
