Guilty Gear -Strive-‘s upcoming DLC character Jack-O’ has received a starter guide video from developer Arc System Works.
“Jack-O’ fights by summoning servants,” begins the video. “Take control of the ever-changing battlefield as you go on the offense.”
The technical fighter was revealed as Guilty Gear -Strive-‘s next DLC character with a trailer on August 16. She is set to release on August 27 for Season Pass 1 holders. For non-Season Pass owners, Jack O’ will be available for purchase on the same date for Steam and on August 30 for PlayStation 4 and 5.
Jack O’s release will be accompanied by her BGM “Perfection Can’t Please Me” as well as various fixes and adjustments. These include reduced input delay on the PS4 Pro and PS5 and a fix for an error involving replay data not saving properly. For input delays on the regular PS4, Arc System Works says that it is “looking into addressing this in the future.”
Additionally, the patch notes say that the developer is looking into a major issue where network features are “completely inaccessible under certain play environments.” They also include a rundown of character adjustments that are planned for August and October.
The upcoming update with Jack O’ will focus on “changes to identified issues, such as individual moves.” For next month’s update, Arc System Works is “currently looking into improving and making changes to overall mechanics as well as certain actions such as projectile special moves and grounded overhead attacks.”
Guilty Gear -Strive- was released worldwide on June 11. Its first DLC character, Goldlewis Dickinson, became available in July. The 2D/3D-hybrid fighting game is the latest installment in the Guilty Gear series, which began in 1998.
