Guilty Gear Strive: Version 1.07 Now Live

Goldlewis Arc System Works

A new update was released recently for Guilty Gear: Strive, and it introduced a new character named Goldlewis. Some operational changes have also been added.

Those who have purchased the GGST Season Pass 1 can play the new character: Goldlewis Dickinson.

He is the first of five different characters that you can get in Season Pass 1. Two additional characters will be released later this year, while the other two will be added in 2022.

That said, Goldlewis’s own background music, “The Kiss of Death,” has also been added to the game. It is worth noting that for you to listen to his BGM, you must have the character unlocked first by purchasing the pass.

Notable Changes

Aside from the introduction of Goldlewis, several operational changes and bug fixes have been added.

For instance, players can now queue up as spectators even if there are no matches currently available at the Duel Station.

In addition, Spectators will no longer be kicked out of the session after being AFK for quite some time. You can relax as you watch other players battle without fear of getting kicked out.

According to the developers, they are still looking into the issue where some network features are completely inaccessible under certain play environments. Hopefully, they get fixed at the soonest possible time.

Patch Notes

Here are the highlights of Version 1.07:

  • Fixed an error in which the opponent would not block in certain situations while using the “After First Hit” block setting in Training Mode.
  • Fixed an error which caused the game to become unresponsive to scrolling after certain inputs were made while using the filter function of the member list.
  • Fixed an error which caused the player name and avatar displayed on the Follow tab of the Lobby select screen to show incorrectly sometimes.
  • Fixed an error which caused the avatar of the player who lost a match to sometimes move in an unnatural way.
  • Improved an issue which made it difficult for matches and spectating to connect successfully when the player’s connection was incompatible with the room owner.
  • Fixed several other minor issues.
  • Fixed an error which caused the “Punish” system message not to be displayed when punishing certain attacks with throws, etc.
  • Fixed an error which made it impossible to leave Faultless Defense state during certain animations.

Guilty Gear: Strive Version 1.07 update is now available on PS4, PS5, and PC.
