Cygames held their giant Granblue Fantasy Summer reveal stream earlier this morning where they finally showed off Belial's gameplay trailer for Versus along with more announcements, and now we know more about what and when new contents and updates will be hitting the fighting game.

The Granblue Fantasy: Versus publisher released a full roadmap for the game's Season 2 additions as well during the event including character launches, balance updates, changes to the online and a lot more in the coming months.

Season 2 for the Arc System Works-developed fighting game will begin on September 24 with the release of Belial though there's going to be a bunch more added with him.

Every character will receive balance adjustments though there's more gameplay-related changes coming too which should catch the interest of GBVS players.

Cygames states that Versus' online match functionality will be improved at this time along with the lobby system as well. Online rankings will also be reset at this time which points to a pretty big overhaul next month.

No further details about what the online changes will entail, but any improvement is a welcome change for the playerbase.

There will be two more characters releasing in 2020 with Cagliostro in late October followed by an unannounced fighter who will bring a new in-game event and weapon skins for some of the cast.

The final three remaining inclusions will drop in 2021 until early Summer where Granblue is scheduled to add in more RPG Mode chapters, stages, weapon skins and more.

Those looking for new Granblue content right now won't have to wait very long, as the Version 1.40 update is scheduled to release this weekend and bring with it five new story chapters that brings Gran and Djeeta together for the first time.

A new game mode called Blitz will also be available for a limited time which pits players against each other online for special prizes and trophies along with a Boss Battle Time Attack as well.
