The Dead or Alive series will make its PC debut with Dead or Alive 5: Last Round on February 17, 2015, but the fighting game won't launch with all of its features.

According to the game's Steam page, "online modes for Dead or Alive: 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within 3 months of release," meaning the only way to play it against another person until then is locally.

The game will have retailer specific Costume packs if you preorder it from GameStop, Amazon, or Best Buy.

Dead or Alive: 5 Last Round will also have a free version for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Core Fighters, which comes with four fighters (Ayane, Hayate, Kasumi, and Ryu Hayabusa) and "almost" every game mode. Full details regarding what's included with the free Core Fighters version of Last Round are available here.

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.
