The King of Fighters XV
King of Fighter XV is the sequel to King of Fighters XIV of the long-running KOF fighting series. This is being developed by SNK and will release on the current and previous-gen consoles on February 17. It will also be available on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The Playstation 4 version of the game can be upgraded to the Playstation 5 without any cost. This is great news for those who want to take advantage of the amazing hardware of the PS5. KOF XV will feature 40 playable characters in the base game with another 12 set for paid post-launch content.
What’s amazing about this installment is that this is the first game in the series to use Unreal Engine 4. KOF XV will definitely take advantage of this amazing engine that has brought many games to fame.
The game will also use the GGPO rollback networking system. This system allows for a smooth and lag-less online experience especially for fighting and arcade games. So, you won’t have any difficulty while playing online matches. The developers had previously said how they emphasized rollback networking to give players a smooth experience.
