Sunday finals day for EVO 2023 kicked off in exciting fashion with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Once the first Top 6 of the day was finished, it was time to get to the first of several expected announcements. The first was for Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, which got a new trailer, release date, and information on the game's next online beta test.
EVO 2023 attendees got to check out the latest Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising trailer, which featured fresh looks at the series' 1v1 fighting, as well as some of the secondary game modes and new peeks at the three-part story and the Grand Bruise Legends side mode.
Those who may not be totally sold on the game will also have the option to pick up a special Free Edition. This special version of Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising contains four playable characters, the first part of the story, online play, and a fully playable version of Grand Bruise Legends. However, those who own the Free Edition will only have access to limited features.
Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising and its Free Edition will release on PC and PlayStation on November 30. A second online open beta is also set to deploy at some point this fall prior to the game's release, which will include lobby matches, cross-platform play, and a chance to check out Grand Bruise Legends. We'll continue to watch EVO 2023 throughout this Sunday's finals day. Keep it on Shacknews for the latest announcements. Plus, don't forget to check out our full list of winners, trailers, and announcements from the entire weekend.
