The upcoming update, 1.11, is actually quite different
than the recently released update, 1.10. 1.10 was released for the DLC
character 2B from NieR: Automata and it was a main priority at that time.
1.11 gets several changes added in and game developer
Project Soul is attempting to improve the online matchmaking process. They are
trying to achieve this to assure that everyone meets similarly experienced
opponents online. Here are the inclusions:
Changes to stages that made it easier for
players to get a Ring Out” win than others.
Various Hitbox Issues, mentioned in the stream
were Astaroth and Cervantes.
Removing differences of the ways a move works
offline and online to harmonize the gameplay in both modes.
Balance changes for all characters to balance
the roster in general but also to emphasize the design philosophies behind
each of the characters.
Some news also got revealed about the DLCs coming to the
game. There are at least two more DLC characters coming to it and the next DLC
is all about the Create-A-Soul Mode. There will be two packs with over 100
items with the first one coming soon after the upcoming patch. It will include
new costume parts, items from previous game, and some from characters that did
not make into the recent title of the series. There will be music from the
previous SoulCalibur games included as well.
The team wants to release some of the items of the upcoming DLC for free, but there were no details given about these items yet. The game is now available on PlayStation 4.
