Guilty Gear Strive 1.10 Update Patch Notes Now Available

Arc System Works just released notes for the upcoming patch to its 2D fighting game Guilty Gear Strive.

Long story short, update 1.10 is a huge balance update with a lot added into the game. Each character in Strive is receiving a ton of buffs with the rare nerf or two thrown in for balance’s sake. The game’s universal mechanics also received some adjustments like throws, throw techs, Faultless Defense, and projectiles.

The update itself will be out on 15th October. In the meantime, here are the notes.

Highlights

  • Number of moves that can be cancelled into air dashes have increased.
  • Some projectile moves have less recovery, making them easier to use in neutral.
  • Time window for throw clashes now extended; it’s now easier to counter opponent’s throws with your own.
  • You can Roman Cancel at any point during the animation of throws (except for Overdrive command throws).
  • Faultless Defense now creates a minimum amount of pushback distance.
  • Psych Burst hitbox expanded.
  • Jump S, Jump HS, and Jump D now triggers the Counter Effect. Ky Kiske and Jack-O’s Jumping D doesn’t trigger this.
  • Jump S, Jump HS, and Jump D can now be jump canceled and air dash canceled.
  • The update will take place tomorrow at 15th October 3pm-5pm GMT+8.
