Bandai Namco is gearing up for their next major update to Soul Calibur 6. On August 3, the version 2.20 and 2.21 patches will be going live for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC users, which will bring in support for the new DLC, introduce balance changes, and more.

Compatibility for paid DLC 11 and DLC 12 is being put into place with ver. 2.20, which will pave the way for the latest DLC character, Setsuka, as well as the new character creation set. Setsuka and the creation items will not be available in-game until tomorrow, August 4.

On top of a new, returning warrior, fans can look forward to a slew of balance changes and character adjustments with 2.20. A full list of patch notes has been released and you can find it here.

With this batch of changes, Bandai Namco aimed at giving more variation to each character's offensive options. Attacks that were previously difficult to utilize have been improved, and other moves have been toned down where they weren't intended to be as powerful.

Additionally, a new stage is coming included with this patch. Murakumo Shrine Grounds will be available for everyone to use when the update goes live.

We have posted a quick preview of the patch notes in the gallery below detailing some general changes. Be sure to hit the above link to read through all of the specific character tweaks.

- A setting in the Character Creation mode will be added that toggles whether the character's equipment will be destroyed during battle.

- Quick Character Selection will be added to Training mode.

- A feature to the options menu will be added that toggles whether or not actions performed after a match has ended will be displayed on screen.

This feature only applies to online battles.

-Game System Adjustments (PS4®/Xbox One/STEAM®)

- Some text errors have been fixed.

- Stability has been improved for certain actions, etc.

-CHARACTER CREATION Adjustments (PS4®/Xbox One/STEAM®)

In order to prevent an error in which body parts become transparent, certain pieces of equipment can no longer be equipped together at the same time.

- "Destiny Lower Body Garment" and "Boxing Trunks" can no longer be equipped at the same time.

- "Crown Princess Attire" and "Raven Leather Leggings" can no longer be equipped at the same time.

- "Baihu Coat" and "Sword Demon Costume" can no longer be equipped at the same time.

While we try our hardest to avoid limiting possible customization options, we feel such a change is necessary to prevent character models from displaying incorrectly. We kindly ask for your understanding.

- "Rubber Mask" and "Oval Glasses" can no longer be equipped at the same time.

One of these items would not have displayed when equipped with the other anyway, so this change has no effect on visual customization options.

- "YoRHa Unit Number Two Standard Armor (White)" can no longer be equipped at the same time as "Nakoruru's Dogi (Top)".

This is due to an issue in which these parts would significantly clip through each other.

The black version of this equipment was already incompatible with "Nakoruru's Dogi (Top)", so the white version was adjusted to match.

Changes have been made to certain stickers.

- An issue in which stickers placed on "Padded Headgear" are visible on the opposite side they were placed has been fixed.

- An issue in which stickers cannot be placed near the backside of "Chinese Hat (Brimmed)" has been fixed.

(Other changes have been made as well.)

- An issue in which hair with the "Braided Half-Up Style" disappears when certain head equipment is equipped has been fixed.

- An issue in which Astaroth's and Haohmaru's abdomens become transparent if they are equipped with "Enlightened One's Armor" has been fixed.

- The color palette for the 4th color-customizable place on "War Maiden's Costume" has been changed, increasing customization options.

- "Kuroko's Hood" was designed after stagehands in kabuki theater (called "kuroko") who would never show their faces, and in consideration of that fact, the item was intentionally designed so it could not be broken. However, in version 2.20, players are now able to turn equipment breaking on or off, so "Kuroko's Hood" is now treated as breakable equipment.

- An issue in which the angle of movement for "Seeker's Earrings" and "Aristocrat Earrings" differs between Extra 1 and Extras 2 & 3 has been fixed.

-BAN policies for players who violate the EULA (End User License Agreement)

We will enforce bans on players who have been confirmed to have violated the EULA that is agreed upon when they first play the game. Please note that players who are repeatedly reported to have violated the EULA are subject to the ban once we confirm such violation has actually taken place.

Ver. 2.21

Update Ver. 2.21 Patch Notes for PlayStation4®/Xbox One/STEAM®
