Dead or Alive 6 has been on the market officially for two and a half months now with its free-to-play version releasing shortly thereafter, and it appears that additional downloadable title is doing pretty well in the eyes of Team Ninja.

Koei Tecmo announced today that Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters has crossed over 1 million downloads across all platforms, and the developers are going to be giving out free Player Points to everyone as a celebration. On top of that, the Version 1.05 update is now available for the game which adds new lobby functions, adjusted balance and the second set of DLC pirate costumes.

To collect the free 100,000 Player Point gift, players must update the game and simply log in before the end of June 4. Then you can go on a costume unlocking frenzy as long as you have the available parts earned for them.

Dead or Alive 6's latest update also brings with it balances changes for the characters Tina, Ryu, Kasumi, Hayate, Leifang, La Mariposa, Hitomi, Nyotengu and Phase 4.

Lobbies have also been expanded to allow for multiple battles to occur simultaneously in a single room along with the ability to text chat and name custom rooms in the recently added mode.

The 'Pirates of the 7 Seas Costumes Vol. 2' DLC set is also now available after the update bringing swashbuckling outfits for 13 of DOA6's crew. This new set will cost the same as the first volume at $19.99 or can be picked up as part of the $93 Season Pass.

While downloads for the Core Fighters version of the game appear to be initially strong, the full Dead or Alive 6 shipped 350,000 units in its first month on shelves which was 40 percent less than its predecessor. Hopefully the difference in releasing the free version so quickly can make up the difference between the two.

Dead or Alive 6 Core Fighters is free to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC which comes packing four characters out of the roster that rotates regularly. You can check out the full patch notes below as well as a video showing off the new pirate costume DLC.
