Played through the entirety of Azur Lane: Crosswave on the PC or PlayStation 4 by now, and thinking about revisiting some of its content? Would you prefer to play it with a different set of characters than those included in the game? International publisher Idea Factory International confirmed earlier this month that five new character DLC packs will be launched simultaneously for the game from 5 October 2020.
Each downloadable character pack will cost $7.99 apiece or at a discounted price of $33.95 (15% off) for buying all five at once. Each will include one main playable character, an additional three support ships and additional story mode content centered around the playable character.
DLC playable characters include: Taihou, Formidable, Roon, Le Malin and Sirius. The newly introduced support characters include: Saint Louis, Dunkerque, Jean Bart, Warspite, HMS Neptune, Zara, Graf Zeppelin, Deutschland, Admiral Graf Spee, Essex, Baltimore, Centaur, London, Alabama and Azuma.
In the weeks leading to launch, IFI has been sharing previews of each of the characters – including their storyline and preview screenshots. The most recent content they shared was around the ship Sirius, who will be bundled with her own story arc and three support ships: London, Alabama and Azuma. More information on her can be found below:
Sirius and London were given the task of returning the Cubes the Royal Navy borrowed to the Sakura Empire. However, while en route, the Sirens attacked. They announced that they were taking the Cubes, and the Sakura Empire began handling damage control.
Sirius and London was the pair chosen for this task. In order to defend the Cubes, they were dispatched to the Sakura Empire. At the scene, both the Eagle Union and Iron Blood had come and stood against the Siren’s scheme.
Will the Kansen be able to unite to protect the Cubes from the Sirens?
