Jump Force roadmap and DLC schedule reveals a free update in April, Seto Kaiba to be first DLC character

Jump Force is set to take its anime crossover fighting fest to the next level with oodles of upcoming content for us to tackle our way through. 

Bandai Namco revealed a Jump Force roadmap on Twitter which outlines all the scheduled content we can expect from April right through to August, and happily we’re going to get a lot of free updates. 

The first free update hits in April with new Avatar costumes, a Vertex event and the Clan Feature.

Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh will be the first paid-for DLC available in May along with two other yet to be announced playable characters. Topped off with some additional avatar costumes and skills, the paid for content is included in the Characters Pass, so it will download automatically if you’ve already bagged it for yourself. 

Along with the new characters in May, another free update will give players an Online Link Mission, a Boss Raid Event and a new World Tournament Stage. 

Here’s what you can expect through to August: 

- Free Update: Arena Event, new avatar costumes

- Free Update: Tournament event, new avatar costumes 

- Paid DLC:  3 New playable characters and avatar costumes and skills
- Free Update: New avatar costumes, New Stage: Valley of the End

With six new playable characters joining the roster and a generous helping of free content, it looks like we’ll have plenty to keep the fighting fresh in future.

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
