Blade Symphony: Patch 7 Restores Steam Workshop Support

Blade Symphony
Blade Symphony Steam

Blade Symphony is a fun 1v1 or 2v2 tactical sword-fighting game where you pick one of five classes available, each with its specialties. The Phalanx, for example, is a pretty balanced class that has a wide array of side attacks. He is also proficient at poking enemies from a distance, thanks to his ability to perform long-range stabs.

Additionally, you have several weapons at your disposal. For instance, if you want to chain combos quickly and easily, the Jian is a great one for that.

Anyway, developer Puny Human launched a fresh update to start the new year. Patch 7 restores support for items that you can get from the Steam Workshop. Most of the items from the platform should now be visible to you.

Furthermore, the company has added an option that allows you to automatically delete all of the unsubscribed workshop content from your PC. This is a godsend as you no longer need to delete them one by one from your disk.

Patch 7 re-integrates the global leaderboard for Blade Symphony. On top of that, you’ll not only find the global rank when viewing other players, but you will see a nice shiny league icon as well.
