WiIl The King of Fighters XV be on PS Plus?

After initially being planned for 2020, then delayed from 2021 to Q1 2022, the release date for KOF XV has rapidly been counting down for those looking to experience the fast-paced gameplay of SNK's upcoming flagship 3v3 fighting game. Here's the breakdown of whether or not KOF XV will be available on PS Plus on day one.

WiIl KOF XV Be on PS Plus?

Although KOF XV will be dropping on PlayStation 4 and PS5, as well as have a PlayStation-exclusive Open Beta Test in November, it does not appear that the 3v3 team battle fighting game will be offered on PS Plus.

In addition to PS4 and PS5, KOV XV is set to release for Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store) on Feb. 17, 2022. Unfortunately, those on Xbox One will not be seeing the game release for their platform.

KOF XV marks the 15th mainline title in the KOF series, which first started in 1994. The upcoming game will be the sequel to KOF XIV (2016) and the first to use Unreal Engine 4.

Thirty-nine playable classic characters and resurrected favorites will be featured in KOF XV, reigning from the series' Orochi, NESTS, and Ash sagas.

In addition to simply improving the visuals, the King of Fighters' signature 3v3 team battle system will be supplemented this time around by a new Shatter Strike mechanic that is said to allow enemy attacks to be countered.

MAX Mode has also been said to be improved upon, while a new MAX Mode (Quick) option will reportedly add a rush function to allow rapid combos to be pulled off.

Local two-player battles will be available for those in the same room, while the online battle modes for two to eight players will include ranked match, casual match, room match, online training and a draft versus mode.
