A couple of weeks back, we learned that Live by the Sword: Tactics would be getting its biggest update yet. The dev team says they’ve heard your feedback, positive and negative, and have made numerous meaningful changes to the game that haven’t just resulted in new content, but changed content.
We now know that the update will arrive on Switch at some point early next year. Unfortunately, we don’t have anything more specific on release timing. When that info becomes available, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Here’s what you can expect to see with the Winter Update when it goes live:
- Story Mode has received numerous changes on every single encounter, adjusting the enemy team composition as well as limiting the characters players can use to introduce new strategies.
- Adventure Mode has had multiple new systems introduced, Stat Points, Grand Effects, New Items, New Boards, New Abilities and Traits.
- Animation Speed has been increased as well as regular movement speed.
- New Traits and Abilities added to every class and a balance pass has been performed.
