Guilty Gear Strive Patch 1.09 Introduces Balance Changes, Reduces Input Delay on PS5 / PS4 Pro


A new Guilty Gear Strive patch is now live on PC and PlayStation consoles, introducing some system-wide changes as well as balance tweaks for all fighters.

Patch 1.09, among other things, reduces input delay on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 Pro, which is an extremely welcome change, considering how different the game felt on consoles compared to PC. The patch also introduces support for Jack-O, the second DLC character for the game, as well as plenty of balance changes for all characters. Sol Badguy is the character that has been tweaked the most, but most characters received some significant changes, which can be checked out in full on the game's Official Website.
