Xenoblade Chronicles 2 version 1.1.1 out next week, details

Posted on December 13, 2017 by in News, Switch

The director of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Tetsuya Takahashi, has posted a long list of changes that will soon come along with the 1.1.1 update of his game.

The update will include an Easy Mode for Tiger! Tiger!, mini-map improvements, more items for the Expansion Pass, bug fixes and quality-of-life changes. Other than that, the update will also include new enhancements that aren’t targeted towards fixing preexisting bugs. For example, a feature that allows the player to view their map while selecting a place to fast travel.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also be getting another update early next year. It will add New Game+ with the ability to recruit certain Blades, functionality to send story-related blades like Pyra and Dromarch on merc missions, and you’ll be able to unlock certain Blades’ level 4 move.

The first update is slated for December 21 (December 20 in North America), according to Takahashi. The second patch should be available around the time of the Quests Pack from the Expansion Pass in January.

    Quality of life patch?

    • Carlos

      Since they announced Quality of Life work, we still know nothing of it and now all of a sudden it pops up randomly in a game. Seems like a running gag or something…

    • GoldenTriforce

      Quality in Life could be controls, menu, tutorials, UI, performance etc.
      Probably general improvements so they didn’t feel the need to specify.

    • Douglas Siano

      AI not stepping in lava or jumping off cliffs? Ability to yell “COME TO ME!”?

  • ben

    For DLC people it also has some items.
    Ten rare crystals and 1 special blade. The tea that Pyra likes and the thing Nia likes

  • Pepperkeet

    tiger tiger is annoying, had to replace tora the second I could since the grind is real and that minigame is boring.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Yeah, the game as it is plays like a very old school game, which means it has a high difficulty and learning curve for how simple it is.

      I find it’s best played with the D-pad.

      The real problem is progressing through the stages, I have found, doesn’t really guarantee higher level stuff for Poppi, or maybe my luck just sucks.

      Tiger! Tiger! Though I have found, if you’re lucky, can also net you Core Crystals, but it’s not a guarantee. Only other way to get them outside of Story / Regular battle drops and treasure drops and (idk if so) salvaging.

      • YoungTheFish

        Salvaging is by far the best way to farm crystals. Tiger Tiger is a fun game on its own, but the payout is way too small. Instead of an easy mode, it should just yield more so I don’t have to play it so much I get bored of it.

    I would like a proper map. That overlay map is not quite as functional as needed. 8 have to cycle through the fast travel locations to find certain places.

    Please more overdrive protocols.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      They need to make Overdrive Protocols drop in regular battles in high level areas or high level enemies. The fact they aren’t farmable (ASFIK) is silly.

      • YoungTheFish

        They really should be available for purchase near the end game. Or available for a high level salvage exchange.

      • Paul Tatum

        You get one each time you release a completed 4 star blade. Which means they are technically farmable, even though this is very time consuming.

  • Aline Piroutek

    Performance enhancements?

  • Toni

    nice, this gives me more motivation to get it rather sooner than later and january seems just fine; so the moment XCX gets ported to the switch I can finally move the Wii U and make room for a switch, at that point the only thing missing would be the virtual console

  • GoldenTriforce

    That fixes a lot of the problems people had!

  • piichan

    Yes! on the minigame difficulty. I like Tora and Poppi but getting parts for her is such a grind.

    Hopefully, they only change the difficulty and not the kind of items you get.

  • Bart

    Huh, I was wondering if this game had new game+, guess now I know.

    • Ann

      Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.

    • GoldenTriforce

      That could tie into QoL

      • Roto Prime

        Don’t tell anyone……but I messaged them about it….they got back to me and said they would look into it!!!! I hope this is it <3

        • GoldenTriforce

          Yeah Nintendo support is very good, at least in America. I presume you mean support at least.

          • Roto Prime

            Well, I was talking about Monolith Soft, I messaged them, did not think I would get a reply lol

  • Logical Q

    Performnce issues fixes please, game.is currently unplayable

    • jimmy

      In what way?

    • Kenshin0011

      Untrue, many have sunk hundreds of hours in and love it.

    • Thiago

      You are really dumb.

    • YoungTheFish

      Did you turn on your TV while playing?

    • GoldenTriforce

      I get not liking a few frame dips but it never sinks below 20, so I don’t think I’d quite call that “unplayable”

    • Nhat Anh Hoang

      LOL, “unplayable”

  • Kenshin0011

    This is amazing news!

    Well now I’m not sure I want to sink many hours in the game if these awesome QOL features will be added soon….Gosh, I wish it would come sooner!

  • dataminor

    I hope they fix the quest radar when they fix the map. It’s vague and confusing.

    • smashbrolink

      I haven’t had any issues with it, now that I know it’s not so much a compass as a proximity indicator.
