Samurai Shodown's season pass is now available for free on Xbox One

With the official release of SNK's latest fighting title, Samurai Shodown, taking place earlier this week, fans on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been "embracing death" around the world. It was announced that those who pre-order or purchase the game before June 30 would receive the game's season pass free of charge, but that was recently extended out to the pass being free for everyone on PlayStation 4 — even if you haven't bought the game.

Now, players on Xbox One can also take advantage of the free DLC. Be sure to download it right away, as this offer won't be available for long.

On the PlayStation Store, the listing notes that the Samurai Shodown season pass will be free until July 2. While it does not specify if the Xbox One offer will follow that same date, it's probably a good idea to snatch it up before then just in case.

Samurai Shodown's season pass adds four additional fighters to the playable roster. We'll be seeing Rimururu, Basara, Kazuki Kazama, and Wan-Fu join the fight between now and early 2020.

Rimoruru will be the first to see a release in August. From there, we'll see Basara launched in October, Kazuki in December, and Wan-Fu in February next year.
