Dead or Alive 5 – New Island Stage And More

Team Ninja have revealed that the 1.03 update for Dead or Alive 5 contains new content including a free new island stage, gameplay updates and improvements, and three new DLC packs featuring stunning new swimsuit collections to take advantage of the new tropical island setting.

The new stage, Zack Island, is a lush tropical island with a clear blue sea and white sandy beaches.  Battles take place on the beach and can carry into the waves of the sea, a ‘slip zone’ where characters are more vulnerable to lower body attacks.  Tropical items such as coconuts can fall from trees when shaken or hit during battles, too!

General updates include combat balance adjustments and new fighting moves, online gameplay adjustments, updated content and movie upload functions and general updates based on player feedback.  In depth details can be found here.

The 1.03 update is available now for the PlayStation, and due on the 29th January for Xbox 360.
