Team Ninja's fighting game Dead or Alive 5 Last Round has been delayed on PC by more than a month, but it's online modes still won't be ready by launch, publisher Koei Tecmo has announced.

The game, which was originally slated to launch via Steam on February 17, has been pushed back to March 30.

"In appreciation for your patience, we'll be offering the Halloween 2013 Set (28 costumes) free of charge to all users who purchase Dead or Alive 5 Last Round on Steam," Koei Tecmo said, explaining that it pushed the game back in order to provide players with "the best experience possible."

However, this doesn't change Tecmo Koei's previous statement from back in December 2014 that the game will not have any of its online modes at launch. As the publisher said then "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within 3 months of release."

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja previously announced that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will launch across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 in North America on February 17, 2015. The game launches three days later on February 20 in Europe.
