Let me preface this with overall I really like this game. However, I feel it still needs polish in the combat systems and server capabilities. Listed below are the bugs I and 3 other PS4 plays (2 standard 2 PS4 Pro) have noticed along with a brief description.
Inconsistent hit/ block detection
-Oftentimes strikes appear to hit an enemy only to pass through them or be blocked mid-swing when no riposte or counter is present.
Riposte and counters inconsistent
-When performing a successful riposte incoming attacks will sometimes block incoming damage and sometimes not. EX: 1v2 enemy 1 attacks and is riposted. swing is initiated immediately after yet enemy 2’s attack that was initiated shortly after enemy 1 will land.
-Often when mid-combo, attempting to jab or kick will not be registered. Also when attempting to attack after blocking, it will sometimes trigger a feint as if it hasn’t registered the player letting go of the block button.
Player pop in during the beginning of certain levels
-Levels such as The battle of dark forest and the siege of rudhelm.
Error code CE-34878-0
-Game will consistently crash with this error code after ~3 hours of play
Trophies not appearing on PS profile screen
-Granted this may be a PSN issue but I felt it was worth mentioning. Chiv 2 is not appearing in the trophy section of PSN. This makes it impossible for trophy hunters like my friend to track tasks
These were just some of the issues my group noticed in our 24 hours after launch. Overall we’ve been having a blast and hope everyone else is too.
