During CEOtaku 2022 this past weekend, Arc System Works America, Inc. announced the upcoming Rollback Netcode support for 2.5D brawler Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 on Steam, the third installment to Guilty Gear’s popular Xrd fight game series. The public test for Rollback Netcode will begin on October 28th, 2022.
Rollback Netcode will bring Steam players a variety of enhancements to Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2’s online play. This will reduce delays in online matches to allow players to enjoy fighting fellow players across distant regions. Steam players can take advantage of the Beta Testing period starting October 28 for an initial Rollback Netcode experience. Arc System Works is also planning toward future Rollback Netcode implementation in Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-.
As the third installment in the Xrd series, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 remains a fan favorite even five years after its initial release. The game offers balance updates while new characters Baiken and Answer join the base game Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- for a total of 25 characters. The storyline from Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- also continues with new scenarios detailing the events after the main story. Players are challenged to test their skills and prove their mettle within a post-apocalyptic world filled with an eclectic cast of insane fighters.
