[Update]: Good news! Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 has now added rollback netcode in order to improve online multiplayer.

Besides being nigh unpronounceable, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is an expanded edition of the post-apocalyptic 2.5D Brawler. The upgraded version brings with it Baieken and Answer as new playable characters, a whole host of balance and ability changes for existing characters, a bunch of new storylines, as well as major improves to the online modes.

If you're interested in seeing what all of this looks like in gameplay you'll find the recently posted introduction trailer right below. The spoken language is Japanese so you might have trouble picking up on some of the details that the subtitles miss, but given that the video is 11 minutes long I think you're going to get a good feel of what the gameplay is about anyway. Have a look:

It is worth noting that Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is not a standalone game, you will need the original Guilty Gear Xrd - Revelator in order to play around with the new content. To learn more, or just grab yourself a copy, you should head over to either the official website or Steam. And finally, here's a few images showing the new content:
