Soul Calibur V Patch Coming This Month

Posted on March 15, 2012 AT 08:41am

THE BUZZ: Namco Bandai has announced that Soul Calibur V is set to receive a new balance patch this month.

It will be released March 21 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The patch offers re-balances to various characters, gameplay tweaks – based on fan feedback - and optimizes the online ranked match search.

The patch will be followed by monthly DLC costume packs for use in the game’s Creation mode. The first pack is due out April 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

EGM’s TAKE: There’s nothing more important in a fighting game than balance, if one character turns out to be more powerful than the rest then the online competitive side is ruined. Certain character  have already surfaced in Soul Calibur V and the development team will be looking to even things out quickly. Nobody wants another Hilda situation from Soul Calibur IV, for those that are unaware she was banned from tournaments for being to over powered.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
