DNF Duel version 1.03 update patch notes and balance adjustments for characters

Character Skills

Striker – Airwalk: Changed the skill’s gravity upon its activation.
Grappler – Break Down: Enlarged the downward hitbox of the attack, enabling it to hit crouching Enchantresses.
Crusader – Sacred Upper: Fixed an issue where the slamming attack could hit downed opponents repeatedly in some situations.
The Lost Warrior – Mysterious Pierce: Fixed an issue where the skill’s projectiles would not interact properly with other projectiles.

Training Mode (STEAM)

  • Fixed an issue where recording actions for training dummies while using customized button settings would cause dummies to replay unregistered actions.

Online Mode (STEAM)

  • Fixed an issue where players would be disconnected when starting Round 2 in online matches while using a keyboard. The end-of-round scene can be skipped with keys allocated to attacks.

We are also currently looking into other issues such as character balance, rematch bugs, non-registering button inputs, and more. We will notify our Adventurers through a notice on patch dates for the issues just mentioned as soon as they are finalized.

DNF Duel version 1.02 update patch notes for PS4

  • The update history on PS4 is as follows: System stability has been improved.

DNF Duel version 1.01 update patch notes

  • System stability has been improved.

As of now, DNF Duel DLC has not been announced. The base game includes rollback netcode in its online modes, offline modes, an arcade mode, story mode, training, gallery, and more. The game also looks and feels great. I’ll have a full PS5 review in the coming days, since the online mode wasn’t available reliably pre-release until a few hours ago. It is going to be interesting to see how DNF Duel does on console and PC over the year and when we get any announcements for new content.

DNF Duel is out now on PS5, PS4, and PC via Steam worldwide.
