The backyard of the new version of the developer provides some insights after the previous beta
After the game was delayed last month, Guilty Gear Strive conducted the second public Beta test, and now we can finally confirm the existence of the next iteration.
Arc System Works has now released the developer̵
“We are planning to conduct a second Open Beta test based on player feedback,” reads the bottom of the developer’s post. “The time has not yet been determined, so please be aware of future updates.”
Considering that the new release date of Strive is June 11, the latest ArcSys may get this additional opportunity in early May to let us participate in the game again, so the date should be deleted at any time.
The developers said they hope to conduct a beta test after the planned lobby changes are completed.
So far, Strive’s online lobbying system has the lowest score after the Beta test, with more than 50% of respondents rated it as bad or very bad.
In order to solve the problems in the previous Beta, ArcSys said that they will make the following changes to the updated lobby:
• Change to the system to allow players to choose the visible area where they want to play
• After winning the game, unless the level is changed, the player will stay in the state of preparing to fight
•Add rematch option
• Expand the area of each lobby, add the option to hide the news display, and add dashes to the avatar.
These adjustments may make the Strive lobby function similar to the developer’s previous title, although it sounds like they clearly insist on using the 2D multi-level stage in the mode.
This has not been confirmed in the post here, but Guilty Gear Strive’s release sheet seems to indicate that the second Beta will again only be available to PlayStation owners, with digital pre-orders, and a one-day early experience.
