Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 is the seventeenth entry in the Guilty Gear series and the update title to REVELATOR. REV 2 was first announced during Arc System Works Game Award in January 14, 2017. REV 2 was released for Japanese arcades on March 30, 2017, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, on May 25 in Japan, and May 26 in North America and Europe, while the PC version was released on June 1, 2017. Players who bought REVELATOR on PS3, PS4 or Steam will only require a paid REV 2 DLC update patch. The PS4 version also received an exclusive physical disc version, which includes all DLC.
REV 2 contains the same content as in REVELATOR, but includes two additional characters, balance changes and new moves for the entire roster, as well as new Episode story scenes for Jam, Haehyun, Raven and Dizzy. The game also includes a new After Story, taking place shortly after the main Story on the console and PC versions, which is expanded through updates.
