BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Rollback Netcode Arriving April 2022; PC Playtest Next Week

Arc Systems Works has announced that the highly acclaimed 2D fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be receiving rollback netcode for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in April 2022. A public test for this notable implementation will be conducted next week on February 23 at 3 PM PST/ 6 PM EST.

BlazBlue Centralfiction recently acquired rollback netcode, drastically improving its online infrastructure and gameplay experience. Hopefully, this implementation for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be as qualitative in execution. It’s good to see the publisher paying attention to what fighting game fans want. Latency and connection are a huge must in this community, and these two games will only get better with the added online support.

Initially 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.

In case you missed it, you can check out some gameplay trailers for a few of the characters available in the update, including Neo Politan and Yumi, as well as a full lineup trailer showing most of the characters in action.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is available now on PS4, Switch, and PC.
