there are many news Struggle content on the way
Evo 2022 is officially underway, and Arc System Works took the stage today to discuss guilty mechanism. The company outlined its plans for the near future faulty gear effort in a roadmap, which includes new content and a test of some cross-play features.
In a panel today, Arc System Works talked a bit about the past of guilty mechanismleading up to Struggle and up to the present. After answering a few questions and sharing some concept art, the team showed off a graphic detailing what’s to come for the rest of 2022 and into 2023.
In the summer of 2022, a new character and an additional character color are planned. Arc System Works is also looking to address some platform-specific concerns. For PlayStation 5 gamers, that means reducing input lag. And for Steam fighters, it’s reducing the connection time for initial server connections.
Then, in the fall of 2022, Arc System Works plans to beta test for cross-play on PlayStation 4, PS5, and Steam. The global test is currently planned for mid-September and more information on how to join will be announced soon.
Another new character is also set for the fall, and then in the winter a Battle Balance patch will arrive. Looking ahead to 2023, two new stages and two new characters are also in the works.
It seems that Arc System Works has no plans to slow down on faulty gear effort. The fighting game recently passed its one-year launch anniversary and it still seems to be going strong. It is the leading title in terms of registration numbers in Evo this weekend, beating other mainstays such as Street Fighter Y Tekken.
With even more content on the way, it looks like faulty gear effort has even brighter days ahead. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about who this mysterious summer character will be before the weekend is over. You can follow all the action from Evo 2022 on the Evo Twitch stream here.
