Below are the full patch notes:

General Gameplay Adjustments

Move list corrections

Improvements to AI logic

Fixed issues with some augments not granting correct bonuses

Increased the button input buffer when exiting a block hit reaction from 2 to 5 frames

Practice Mode > AI Options > Kustom > Block Attack options now have more defined options Fast, Delay, Late which will perform the Block Attack on the first frame, randomly delayed or on the last frame

Practice Mode > AI Options > Record now has a new Recording Slot to be used for Kustom Getup / Reversal

Practice Mode > AI Options > Kustom > Reversal Attack now has an option for Kustom Reversal & Kustom Reversal with Navigation which uses the Recording Slot Kustom Getup / Reversal starting with the button press or the directional input when with Navigation

Practice Mode > AI Options > Kustom > Getup Attack now has an option for Kustom Reversal & Kustom Reversal with Navigation which uses the Recording Slot Kustom Getup / Reversal starting with the button press or the directional input when with Navigation

Added several new Brutalities for players to discover

All Getup/Flawless Block Up+Front Kick attacks will no longer hit opponents from behind except for Kung Lao, Sonya, and Geras Fixed an issue with several Krushing Blow Requirements sometimes not working correctly while the opponent is still in a hit reaction animation

Added new Nether Forge Recipes for players to discover

Fixed an issue when cancelling an accepted invite would prevent further invites form the same lobby.

Fixed an issue with cinematics not being displayed in 21:9 in Theatre Mode.

Known issues:

We have temporarily disabled the 60 FPS MODE option, because we have seen graphical glitches with some characters, and we need a little more time to clean up the cinematics at 60 FPS. Due to this, the Krypt, Menu and Cinematics will remain at 30 FPS regardless of their setting chosen in the Options menu. This issue is now considered to be high priority to be fixed as soon as possible in a future update, which we hope to have out to you in the coming days. Thank you for understanding and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience that it may cause to some of you. Certain languages subtitles are not present with Spawn’s intros.

We are actively working on delivering a fix for these issues as soon as possible.
