The latest update, Version 1.34, for Guilty Gear -Strive- has been released on January 11, targeting multiple platforms including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows.
This update primarily focuses on fixing various issues in the game. The Battle Version has been updated from Ver. 3.02 to Ver. 3.03, indicating a significant focus on combat-related enhancements and bug fixes. Key fixes include addressing game responsiveness issues, particularly with Elphelt’s Finish Blow post-round victory, and correcting unintended behaviors and visuals involving characters like Elphelt, Millia, and Faust. These fixes aim to improve the overall gameplay experience and eliminate irregularities that have affected players.
Notably, the update tackles a specific issue with Faust’s Scarecrow move, which had caused unnatural camera movements and unintended positioning in previous versions. The developers have adjusted the timing when Faust faces the opponent during the Scarecrow’s active phase to resolve these issues. This change also influences certain in-game combos and positioning, necessitating new inputs for players to adapt to. The developers have apologized for any inconvenience caused to players due to these changes and have committed to keeping the community informed about future updates and release schedules through their official channels.
