Guilty Gear Strive October update will include changes to mechanics
Arc System Works has confirmed that the next big update for Guilty Gear Strive will arrive later this week on October 15th.
The upcoming update will make adjustments to game mechanics and rules in addition to character balance changes, according to the developer. A couple of examples given include changes to the qualities of Faultless Defense, extending the input buffer time, and increasing the time window for throw clashes.
The October update will also adjust the start-up time for characters’ fastest normals, adjust the way counters work for aerial normals, and increase the number of moves that can be canceled into a jump or air dash.
Finally, Arc System Works is reducing the time required to authenticate the online server when launching the game to speed up connection time. The full patch notes for the October update will be shared soon.
Guilty Gear Strive is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
