Soul Calibur 6 Update 1.50 Patch Notes Highlights | Game changes

Cassandra might be the most prominent feature, but there are a ton of changes coming to Soul Calibur 6 with Update 1.50. Much of the changes made can be chalked up as quality-of-life improvements, making certain portions of the game more convenient for players.

For Training Mode, the cursor will now remember your previous selection when you are selecting a Combat Lesson. During actual training, your Soul Charge will now remain after reset position; your position and Soul Charge will be resent by pressing L3 (left joystick)+L1+R1 at the same time. Adjustments to setting CPU actions have also been implemented.

Another quality-of-life improvement made involves your created characters. When selecting a creation character, the cursor will now remember the last character you chose. Additionally, it will remember the last that weapon you chose. It may be a small improvement, but it makes that process much more convenient for players who do use their created characters.
