Here are some brand new written details on all of the confirmed modes of Guilty Gear STRIVE, straight from Arc System Works.
  Story Mode - Experience the latest developments in the Guilty Gear saga. Taking place in the USA, join Sol Badguy as a lifetime of triumph and tragedy culminates in an epic climax.

  Gallery Mode - Get a glimpse behind the development curtain through character illustrations, design materials, and model sheets. Players can also revisit trailers, music, art and more from previous titles.

■  GG World - The “Timeline” offers a quick overview of the history and events of the series, the “Glossary” is the place for player profiles and story setting descriptions, and the “Correlation Map” details all the relationships and connections between characters.

  Online Lobby - Enjoy the communication and matches with players from all over the world with fully customizable avatars. “Celestial Floor” is exclusive for players who keep winning on the top floor of the Online Lobby. The new “Quick Start” feature lets players jump directly from the menu to the standby screen to wait for the next available match.

■  Online Player Match - Enjoy online battles with up to 9 friends in a single room. Rooms will offer a myriad of customization options to fine tune the player experience. Rollback netcode will allow all the players to enjoy lag-free online matches.

Also take another look at previously released details on GGStrive's offline modes: Arcade, Survival, Versus, Mission, Training, and Tutorial, below.

■  Arcade Mode - Core mode of the game, where players fight against CPU-controlled characters. Depending on player skill, opponents will change, and in some cases a third character might jump into the fray to help turn the tide of battle. And at the end of the line the boss character awaits. And as the fully voiced dialog* changes depending on which story route is chosen, players can experience a number of different scenarios.

  Versus Mode - Mode where players can fight against each other either locally or online or test their skills against CPU-controlled opponents. Players can also choose the skill level of computer-controlled characters. Graphs with analytics will be displayed on the result screen to help players understand their strengths and weaknesses after each battle.

■  Tutorial Mode - This is where those new to the series can learn the fundamental mechanics found in the game while enjoying the friendly banter between Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske, the two main characters of Guilty Gear -Strive-. In a change from previous games, instead of completing individual trials, players can get appropriate advice from the characters on the screen depending on the skill level of each player.

  Mission Mode - This is the mode for players who want to dive in deeper into the game systems and combos found in Guilty Gear -Strive-. By completing the challenges found in Mission Mode, players can develop skills that can be taken into battles against offline and online foes. As players earn points, the game will suggest what they should try next, such as practicing against CPU-controlled characters or facing off against other players.

■  Training Mode - The mode where players can practice moves without worrying about time or HP constraints. There are a number of features available to help players improve such as command lists complete with example videos and descriptions for newcomers, and recording and automatic counterattack settings for advanced players. In addition, there is the new “combo recipe” function that allows players to save and share custom combos.

  Survival Mode - Mode where players will face never-ending waves of CPU-controlled opponents until their character runs out of HP. Managing health is the key to excelling in this mode as HP is only sparingly replenished and CPU enemies will increase in difficulty. By keeping a winning streak alive, players can reach the highest levels of the online leaderboard.
Additional details and content can be found on the official website. Guilty Gear -STRIVE comes to PS4, PS5, and PC on April 9th, 2021. Those who pick up the Ultimate Edition will gain access to the game a few days earlier on April 6th.
