Guilty Gear Xrd Rev-2 is the twenty-fourth installment in the long-running Guilty Gear series. The game is updated title to Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- which came out in 2014.

Additionally, the latest installment in the Guilty Gear franchise, Guilty Gear -STRIVE- already features a rollback netcode since its launch in 2021.

Fans were desperately waiting for Guilty Gear Xrd’s rollback update as the game was quite unplayable online without it. Rollback netcode’s official implementation allows players from remote locations to compete together without experiencing massive delays in online matchmaking.

It is important to note that this rollback update is only implemented on the Steam version of the game. The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Guilty Gear Xrd have not implemented the rollback netcode update.

The game is also currently available at a discounted price on Steam due to the “Lunar New Year Sale,” along with several other titles from Arc System Works. Fans, who do not already own, the game can buy it at 50% price.
