Stellar Blade Day One Patch Fixes Input Lag For Combat Mechanics & More

Stellar Blade Eve day one patch

The long awaited PS5 exclusive Stellar Blade is out and the developer Shift Up is already focused on improving its gameplay experience. The day one patch for Stellar Blade has fixed some of the clunky mechanics of the game that were reported when its demo first released. Also, more content with New Game plus mode has been added.

The patch fixed input lag for blocking and parrying as well as for basic attacks. The game previously had over 180 ms of delay between input from controller and character movement.

The latest Stellar Blade patch has fixed parrying & blocking timings to make the combat feel more responsive. Furthermore, there were small changes made to display settings: Chromatic aberration and grain noise effects can now be toggled on/off.

This is a big improvement for Stellar Blade, as the old parry timings were way off which made it harder to deflect even easier incoming attacks.

Stellar Blade’s New Game Plus Mode Adds Extra Gear Levels, Skills, & Costumes

Stellar Blade’s New Game Plus adds a total of 34 new costumes for Eve, additional costumes for Adam, Lily, and the Drone were also added. The mode also adds extra skill tree slots which will make Beta Charge and Burst Skill even more powerful to match with tougher enemies.
