Fixed an issue with several Krushing Blow Requirements sometimes not working correctly while the opponent is still in a hit reaction animation
Added new Nether Forge Recipes for players to discover
Fixed an issue when cancelling an accepted invite would prevent further invites form the same lobby.
Fixed an issue with cinematics not being displayed in 21:9 in Theatre Mode.
We have temporarily disabled the 60 FPS MODE option, because we have seen graphical glitches with some characters, and we need a little more time to clean up the cinematics at 60 FPS. Due to this, the Krypt, Menu and Cinematics will remain at 30 FPS regardless of their setting chosen in the Options menu. This issue is now considered to be high priority to be fixed as soon as possible in a future update, which we hope to have out to you in the coming days. Thank you for understanding and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience that it may cause to some of you.
Certain languages subtitles are not present with Spawn’s intros.
We are actively working on delivering a fix for these issues as soon as possible.
