The latest Developer's Backyard post from Guilty Gear Strive developer Arc System Works has been released, giving an update on the game's state.
In the sixth Developer's Backyard post for Guilty Gear Strive, Arc System Work's Akira Katano talked about some of the changes that were made after the game's betas. One of the main things that is being addressed is jump ins. After the first beta, it was thought that jump ins were very strong. Changes were made after the first beta, such as a decrease in jump movement value and landing rigidity. After the second test, the final adjustments were made, with the full game keeping the landing rigidity. Katano also stated that the team behind the game will be working bugs until the game releases, and will continue making improvements in free updates after Strive releases.
Katano also spoke on some of the modes that will be implemented into Strive when it releases. The first is Player Match. In this mode, gamers can create a room where they can freely change the regulations. By setting an ID, the room can be used to play with friends or for competitions. Nine people can enter the room, making it possible to set up a tournament with eight people and an organizer. The mode will be equipped with functions such as watching games and waiting in line. There will also be online training where players can practice with their friends for an unlimited amount of time.
The second mode that will be available when Strive launches is Mission Mode. This mode will allow players to learn the various aspects of Strive. There will be 120 missions in total, covering topics such as techniques and character countermeasures. The missions are divided into difficulty levels, and are for those who are stuck in a match or do not know what to practice.
It was also announced that Arc System Works will reveal more Guilty Gear Strive information through a Early Access Showcase on June 6th at 10:15 a.m. EST. The stream will feature a look into Strive's story, and will also give information on future updates for the game.
Guilty Gear Strive will release for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on June 11th.
