Guilty Gear Strive Version 1.21 patch notes released reducing PlayStation 5 input lag, Bridget DLC now available

After the big surprise reveal of Bridget for Guilty Gear Strive last night, players can already dive in and see what the new DLC character is all about.

Arc System Works has now released the Version 1.21 update for Strive to coincide with Bridget's arrival, and it appears the PlayStation 5's input latency has been further reduced too.

Obviously, the developers aren't going to share what the input lag on PS5 is going to be like now, but the patch hopefully brings the console more in line with the PlayStation 4 Pro's 2.39 frames of delay — as opposed to the previous 4.5 frames.

Unlike the Season Pass 1 DLC, all Guilty Gear players can now access Bridget regardless of whether they own the new pass or not.

Bridget is available as part of Strive's Season Pass 2 for $25 or $7 solo.

You can check out the full patch notes for Guilty Gear's newest update below or on ArcSys' website.
