Cygames and Arc System Works have revealed more information about Granblue Fantasy: Versus- particularly the game’s villains and DLC- at Granblue Fantasy Fes 2019.
Two of the game’s villains- Chaos Bringer and Belial- will not only be the villains in the game’s RPG mode, but will also become playable. While Chaos Bringer can be unlocked though gameplay by clearing the RPG mode, he may also be purchased as part of Character Pack 1. Belial on the other hand, will be only available as the first character of Character Pack 2.
Along with Chaos Bringer, Narmaya, Soriz, and Djeeta will be part of Character Pack 1. A fifth character will also be included, revealed in March 2020 during the Granblue Fantasy 6th Anniversary live stream. Most character will launch in March 2020, with Djeeta launching in April 2020 and the unknown character having no confirmed date as of yet.
In addition, it was revealed that players who link the mobile game Granblue Fantasy to Granblue Fantasy: Versus (though as of yet unspecified means) would gain a bonus in the mobile game.
Finally, alternative character color DLC was also previewed. The three packs will be released at the same time, and will be included in the Premium Edition, Character Pass Set, and Digital Deluxe Edition.

“Do you not realize your own frailty?”
One of the Astrals who invaded the Sky Realm thousands of years ago, long before the War broke out. He was sealed away in Pandemonium until the fallen angel Belial released him from his forced slumber. Obsessed with becoming the supreme being, he wields a substance capable of slaying immortals—chaos matter. And at his beck and call is Avatar, the manifestation of destruction. Sky Realm, Astral Realm, Crimson Horizon—his hands will mold these realms into one so that he may stand above all in creation.
