The King Of Fighters ’98 Is Getting Rollback Netcode In New Update

SNK has announced that The King Of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition will finally be getting a highly-anticipated feature via a new major update. Something that online players will definitely appreciate.

Rollback netcode.

The King Of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition will receive a major Steam update this winter, adding major online features and interested players will be able to check out these new features in a Community Beta Test (CBT).

One of the most important features of online matches in modern fighting games is rollback netcode, making online matches more precise and circumventing delays caused by latency. The King Of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition’s original, delay-based netcode will be swapped with the fan-acclaimed, state-of-the-art rollback netcode by Code Mystics.

The game will also receive online lobbies, offering more than just 1v1 matches. Players can host or join large rooms with multiple players for epic online battles. And if they simply want to observe and learn or cheer on their friends, they can join online battles via spectator mode.

Before the update goes live this winter, there will be a Community Beta Test, allowing SNK to collect player feedback. From 9am GMT+8 on 30 November to 9am GMT+8 on 4 December 2021, players will be able to check out the online lobbies and spectator features.

The King Of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition is currently available on Steam. It’s also on sale for only RM10.23 at 67 percent off from now until 2 December as part of the Steam Autumn Sale 2021.
