Tecmo Koei has announced that Bayman and Christie will be returning as roster members in Dead Or Alive 5.
Bayman and Christie have both received new character designs and have been redesigned to convey those designs. Christie is a cold-blooded British female assassin who utilizes the Shequan (Snake Fist) style, which allows her to quickly attack her enemies and bring her opponents to their demise with a single blow.
Bayman is a former assassin who specializes in holds and utilizes the Russian military hand-to-hand combat technique of Sambo. He carries out his tasks with the utmost perfection and as a soldier, he has one mission: ultimate victory.
Christie and Bayman fight on the stage known as “Hot Zone,” where an army helicopter is being targeted by armored militants with RPGs inside a decrepit building. As the battle goes on, the helicopter is taken down by an RPG attack and explode upon the fighters on the stage. Players can take advantage of the helicopter going down with precise timing to launch a Power Blow. The crashed helicopter becomes a “Danger Zone” that players can use to their advantage.
