Tomorrow morning (Feb 28th) at 8am EST (13:00 UTC) we will update the PC version of the game to V1.03. This will require a downtime of around 15 minutes. Changes contained in this update can be found below.
NOTE: V1.03 for XB1 and PS4 has been submitted for certification with Microsoft and Sony, respectively. We will update you with the timing of their release when we have it.
Fixed a bug that caused players to lose the “Hard to Kill “ Feat upon death.
Orochi & Berserker
Addressed bugs with their area of effect (AOE) ground Feats not working if the player stopped moving
The Orochi's Nail Bomb & the Berserkers Stun Trap Feats now apply their damage effects correctly to characters who trigger the trap, but stop moving towards the trap, as it was intended.
The Valkyrie Bloodlust Feat is now triggered on all types of kills as it was intended.
Berserker, Warlord, & Valkyrie
Tweaked the “Rush” Feat animation transition bug from idle to sprint animations
We reverted the Guardbreak mechanics to the Beta behavior in order to have it be a more usable skill. Guardbreak is no longer un-counterable if you're Guardbroken during Guardbreak startup.
Attacks that cannot be blocked because they are too fast no longer display the Unblockable Attack feedback.
Fixed camera clipping issues with walls on executions
Some tweaking was made on the Peacekeeper during the Beta, which caused some bugs and unintended changes. We are changing some of her moves to behave as designed.
Fixed the Peacekeeper Guardbreak and Bleed stacking bug
Stab 1 applies 2 dmg + 15 Bleed dmg over 10 sec
Stab 2 applies 2 dmg + 12 Bleed dmg over 8 sec
Stab 3 applies 2 dmg + 9 Bleed dmg over 6 sec
Bleed damage now stacks up for a total of 36 dmg, in the Beta this total was higher (45dmg) but has been reduced for balancing along with the accompanied bug fix
Increased the range of the Peacekeeper Stab Attack to fix issues with missed stabs and therefore not applying Bleed
Stab range increased from 1 m to 2 m
Changed the range distance of the Peacekeeper Light Attack. She can now connect a Light Attack after a parry.
Normal Light Attacks had their range increased by 0.25 m; from 2.75 m to 3 m
Berserker & Conqueror
Light Attack recoveries decreased to prevent free Guardbreak on Block. This was never the intended behavior.
Berserker's Light Attacks and chained Light Attacks recoveries on Block reduced from 900 ms to 700 ms
Conqueror's Light Attacks and chained Light Attacks recoveries on Block reduced from 900 ms to 700 ms
Overall Valkyrie gameplay update/buff. We found that the changes we made during our latest Technical Test were impacting too much the dueling abilities of the Valkyrie. She has gone from the 1st place in Win/Loss in Duel to the last spot.We’ve made some of her moves a little faster and we’ve added some mix-ups.
Pouncing Thrust & Hunter's Strike damage increased from 12 dmg to 17 dmg
Pouncing Thrust & Hunter's Strike can link into Light Chain faster: from 400 ms – 900 ms to 200 ms – 500 ms
Light Attacks recoveries reduced by 100 ms
Light Attack Miss Recovery 900 ms to 800 ms
Light Attack Hit Recovery 700 ms to 600 ms
Light Attack Interrupt Block Recovery 800 ms to 700 ms
Light Attack Regular Block Recovery 700 ms to 600 ms.

Light Chain second Attack Miss Recovery 800 ms to 700 ms
Light Chain second Attack Hit Recovery 600 to 500 ms
Light Chain second Attack Interrupt Block Recovery 700 ms to 600 ms

Interrupt Block recovery 900 ms to 700 ms
Regular Block recovery 800 ms to 600 ms
Increased the dodge back on the Orochi’s “Riptide Strike”
