Additionally, 2B is also available as a Premium Avatar, enabling players to personalize their gaming experience with this beloved character. Several enhancements have been made to 2B, including the addition of a music track, weapon skins, badges, titles, card design, sticker, and Figure Studio poses and expressions.

Enhancements in Battles and Online Matches

The update focuses on enhancing battles and online matches to offer players a smoother and more enjoyable gaming experience. Notable improvements include a reduction in input delay specifically for the PS5 version, ensuring quicker and more responsive gameplay.

Another significant addition is the incorporation of Oceania as a selectable server in online Ranked and Casual Matches. This enables players in the Oceania region to have a more optimized gaming experience with reduced latency. Players can further enhance their online gameplay by adjusting their network region in the System Settings.

For improved visibility and information on network quality, a network quality indicator (RTT) has been added to the pre-match confirmation screen before Ranked and Casual Matches. This indicator displays the RTT millisecond value, providing players with clear insights into their network’s performance.

To keep players engaged and rewarded, weekly challenges have been introduced. By completing these challenges, players can earn rupies to enhance their gaming experience and unlock various in-game content. Additionally, players now have visibility of all available challenges, enabling them to plan their gameplay effectively.

In online matchmaking, adjustments have been made to reflect the player’s voice language setting for the opponent character, ensuring a consistent and immersive gaming experience for all players.
