Bleeding Edge is here, and it's pretty good, but not flawless. The 4v4 brawler pits teams of players in a small variety of objective-based matches, with cybernetically-enhanced healers, tanks, and damage dealers from a diverse range of backgrounds.
The game launched recently and has a few outstanding issues and bugs the team at Ninja Theory is currently tracking to be fixed. Here's what they're looking at so far.
- Fiddy achievement for getting 50 kills is not tracking or unlocking properly.
- DualShock 4 Wireless Controller on PC still tracks as an Xbox controller, and will be fixed soon.
- Localisation (all platforms) problems will be fixed soon, with particular attention paid to Korean and Spanish versions.
- Lag & Stability (all platforms) problems are slated to be addressed as well.
- Unlock 60 FPS (PC). Ninja Theory will unlock the frame rates for players, but the game will always track at 60 frames per second from a server-side perspective similarly to other online fighting games.
- Fail to Connect to online services issue (Steam). Some users, particularly in Australia and China, have had issues connecting. Ninja Theory is working on a fix.
Bleeding Edge is available for $30 digitally on the Xbox Store, or as part of Xbox Game Pass' $10/mo subscription.
