Treachery in Beatdown City – Ver. 2.0

  • Release date: October 4th 2023 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • In MOST fights, when the player loses, they will be able to continue as another player.
  • Weapons are reworked – Weapons were too powerful previously, which kinda broke the game, and limited how we could use them. They now have health, and will die after a certain number of uses/drops, which allows us to add them to more fights.
  • Added the chain whip weapon into the game
  • Hitting objects (news paper holders, garbage cans, benches) via the menu will count toward COMBO counter, giving you bonus FP
  • Hitting multiple enemies + objects at a time multiplies your COMBO count – So hit 2 enemies + 1 trash can (aka 3 things) 3 times = 9 hits = MORE FP!
  • Fight progression feels faster
  • Counter Attacks, Finishers, and specific strikes/grapples will now leave enemies on the ground longer to allow you to regroup, and improve your strategy
  • Fixed a few soft locks in combat stemming from counters
  • Fixed an engine physics bug that caused hits to occasionally drop and miss players/enemies with no feedback
  • Lisa and Brad now have moves that add “Grapple Up” to improve Grapple ability
  • Certain enemies have been tweaked to counter less
  • There are new tutorials added for Grapples, Back Grapples, REVENGE attacks, and the Tenshin move
  • COMBO mode now has a text label to show you that you started a COMBO
  • BURN, SHOCK, and FREEZE show proper status labels
  • New opening tutorial
  • Mercedez’s battle sprite has a new face
  • Generally improved Zoom/Screen shake
  • Cyclists and joggers have larger hit boxes, making them more annoying/threatening
  • Added more context prompts to the attack menu to let players know why they can’t do a thing at any given time
  • Added context sensitive prompts to Map 1-1
  • New CRIT indicators: Regular CRIT attacks now show up as orange, while double + CRIT attacks show up as red.
  • Force Feedback has been added (It is off by default on old saves, so make sure to turn it on!)
  • Ability to turn on/off Force Feedback has been added
  • Improved controller support (controllers generally feel better)
  • Vsync option added – Please turn OFF Vsync if you can’t run the game at 60FPS because of monitor limitations or the game will run at half speed (like if your card can’t output 60FPS at 4K)
  • Improved resolution support
  • Options menu is clearer
  • Build number added to the lower left corner of Options menu
  • New map songs added to Maps 1-2, 1-3, 1-4 and 1-5
  • Holding a direction will cause the player to keep walking (previously the player would snap to each node)
  • Map music continues when you return from a fight
  • Jitter from map camera scrolling has been eliminated
  • Several enemy/ally cutscene images have been enhanced – Abbey, Ugly John, Farooq’s among others
  • Bruce’s cutscene images have been enhanced – He’s got waves, y’all
  • You can advance text quicker by pressing the D (keyboard)/B (controller)
  • Text is sharper
  • Text boxes for enemies, item boxes, and tutorial boxes are all the same size
  • All new title screen logo
