Arc System Works has already confirmed that the next major Guilty Gear Strive patch 1.10 is confirmed this October. New gameplay mechanics will be introduced in this game once the month rolls in. Here's what we know about this major update.
According to the Patch 1.09 update released in August, the developers already gave a date for the major patch update 1.10 to be in October. However, the developers only gave a release window as the patch notes didn't specify which day exactly in October. For now, fans can only wait for further announcements to know which day we'll get it in October.
As of now, the only confirmed changes for the Guilty Gear Strive 1.10 is adding something to the grounded overheads and projectile special moves in the game. The developers have yet to say something about what changes are going to add or take away from these moves.
Currently in patch 1.09, both options are considered not too strong in the game. Most projectile specials in Guilty Gear Strive are slow and reactable if they reach far and barely reach half of the screen up if they're fast. Players often use special projectiles to compliment their pressure options rather than making it a main option to keep foes away.
Meanwhile, the grounded overheads are also considered a weak option to open up your foes. Most characters don't need the universal grounded overhead, Standing Dust, to stop foes from crouch blocking. Other options to open them up such as jump-ins and throw have more reward and have less risk than using the Standing Dust.
Arc System Works may give something new to these moves to encourage their use and not be a forgotten button that no one uses to avoid giving away their advantage.
As of now, we've yet to get any info about Patch 1.10 right now. We'll update you as soon as we can once we get details about this next update 1.10 for Guilty Gear Strive on October.
