Ver. 2.80 Patch Notes

The gameplay has been significantly updated with the addition of new battle mechanics Tactical Move – Rush, Tactical Move – Backshift, and Overdrive, and character adjustments have also been applied. Bug fixes have also been implemented.

■General

New battle mechanics Tactical Move – Rush, Tactical Move – Backshift, and Overdrive have been implemented.

■Tactical Move – Rush

A new mechanic where you close the distance on foes with an attack.

The command is + M + H (Costs 50% of the SBA Gauge). While moving, the player is invulnerable to strike attacks, so this can be used as a punish by avoiding foes’ normal attacks. However, it is not invulnerable to projectiles and throws, so it must be used with caution in certain situations. But even if the attack is blocked, the player is at an advantage, and it can be used as a tool to get a read on your foes.

Rush can also be used to cancel normal attacks, with the exception of crouching U. Additionally it can be further chained into other skills to extend combos upon a successful hit. So players can try to go for combos such as normal attack > Rush > skill.

■Tactical Move – Backshift

A backstep that is fully invincible from start-up.

The command is + M + H (Costs 50% of the SBA Gauge). The buttons can be held down to activate it at the earliest moment, so it can be easily used after a block or on wake-up.

The main purpose is to avoid foes’ attacks. It is especially useful at midscreen, where foes’ attacks can be avoided to safely create distance.

Furthermore, in order to balance with characters with invincible skills and (+) skills, their recovery on Backshift is slightly longer (the invincibility duration is the same for all characters).

■Overdrive

A new power-enhancing system called Overdrive will activate after a hit box surrounding the player is generated. The input is G + M + H (Costs 100% of the SBA Gauge and can only be used once per round). The activation is invincible and will create a hit box surrounding the character. The hit box will push foes back significantly, regardless of if the Overdrive registers a hit or block. So this can be used effectively even when the foe is blocking.

When activated, the SBA Gauge will transform into the Overdrive Gauge. Since the SBA Gauge is no longer available, Rush and Backshift cannot be used. But the Skybound Art (Super Skybound Art) is still accessible (Overdrive will end immediately if a Skybound Art is used.).

After activation, attack strength (with certain exceptions) will increase, normal attacks now deal chip damage, and overhead attacks will have faster start-up. On top of that, other enhancements include negating chip damage and skills from simple commands will have the same properties as technical commands.

■Mission Training

New battle mechanic missions have been added in Basic Mission.

New battle mechanic explanations have been added in Glossary.

Ver. 2.70 Patch Notes

Vira and Avatar Belial have been added as playable characters and a new random select feature is now available. Additional weapons have been added to RPG Mode. Updates have also been applied to various modes and bug fixes have been implemented.

■General

Vira and Avatar Belial have been added as playable characters.

*Vira’s color variants 1-19 are available with purchase of the “Legendary Edition” or “GBVS Additional Character Set (Vira & Avatar Belial).” Unlike the other Color Pack sets for other characters, these color variants will not be sold separately.
*Avatar Belial shares color variants with Belial, so the unlock requirements are the same. All of Belial’s available color variants prior to installing the update will be unlocked for Avatar Belial with installation.

■Vira’s Battle Concept

The Lord Commander of Albion Citadel and a blademaster on par with Katalina, Vira excels at assault from mid-range.

She has various attacks ranging from the long-range Summon Luminiera to the rushdown Scarlet Oath, which can be used to close in on foes. Once in close range, Vira can apply pressure with a multi-hit stab attack, Darkane, or break foes’ defenses with her command grab, Blade of Light. The invincible Red Beryl Sword rounds out a balanced arsenal of skills that can be used for offense or defense.

Vira transforms into her ultimate form upon a successful Blade of Light or activation of the Luminiera Merge skybound art. Transformation will power up each of her (M) and (+) skills, and her Unique Action, Blade of Light, will become Graceview. Her overall combat abilities will be significantly enhanced with abilities such as an air dash.

Outside of her ultimate form, use Scarlet Oath to close the distance on her foes. Once in her ultimate form, use Graceview to move freely and define the offensive tenor of the battle.

■Avatar Belial’s Battle Concept

Belial’s descent into madness is reflected in his appearance and his aggressive fighting style.

His attacks retain the intense pressure that he possesses as a boss character. These include Rejected Truth, a ground-traveling attack; Destructive Delusions, Goetia projectiles launched over a wide range; Habbakkuk, a high-speed beam projectile; and Blind Devotion, a close-range reversal option.

Avatar Belial also has a rushdown attack, Carnal Passion, as well as a flying attack, Wings of Bestowed, which allows him to perform various follow-up attacks from mid-range. Some powerful follow-up attacks include the rushdown attack, Beleth, and a command grab, Barbatos. Use these follow ups effectively to gain an edge over your foes and keep them on their toes.

Finally, Avatar Belial’s biggest feature is that even though his (+) skills deplete his health, the cooldowns are significantly shortened. He also has access to Pacts, follow-up actions after various skills. These will also deplete his health but will change some of his skills.

Using Avatar Belial correctly requires a careful balance between an aggressive offense and depleted health.
