Developer Arc System Works has announced that the highly awaited rollback netcode update for their 2D fighter, BlazBlue Centralfiction, is arriving to the game’s PC version via Steam tomorrow. For those unaware of what rollback netcode provides, it grants an inestimably improved online gameplay experience, resulting in smoother inputs and more cohesive matches. It is steadily becoming integral in almost every fighter out there, so seeing it make its way to such a prolific 2D one is thrilling.
It’s great to see the publisher paying attention to what fighting game fans want. Latency and connection are a massive must in this community, and these two games will only get better with the added online support.
BlazBlue Centralfiction is currently available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
As for other entries in this acclaimed franchise, there is BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
Originally launching in 2018, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a 2D fighter featuring characters from across a handful of franchises. The playable character roster even extends into anime with RWBY characters. Each character is unique, and players can create a team of all-star fighters to bring into a match and combo until their heart’s content. It’s quite an enjoyable time-sink.
