The new trans woman character is the latest addition to the already diverse representation of the game.

The one thing that SFTO “Last Hope” didn’t reveal was how Catalyst received her powers. However, it could be linked to the explosion at the end of the trailer, but at this point, it is just speculation.

You’ll be allowed to send out gifts five times in 24 hours. Platforms don’t restrict the gifting system. You can give gifts to anyone regardless of what platform they play on, provided that you do fulfill all the other conditions.
