  • New game modes are being explored, while another fighter is in development.

While we've known for a while that the next character coming to Bleeding Edge is the cyborg dolphin Mekko, Ninja Theory has provided an update on what else players can expect over the next few weeks. To start, the developers have been working extensively on fixing issues of lag that players were reporting, with improved matchmaking based on connection strength. Mekko will also be added to the roster next week.

Further out, Ninja Theory is working on new game modes and another fighter is currently in development. Custom and ranked game modes are being explored and another map is also on the way. We don't know exactly when these additions will roll out but they are coming.

We'll be sure to provide an update as these new additions are further details down the line.

  • Not my type of game but, I appreciate the commitment to supporting this game for those that like to play it.
  • I've put it on the backburner until the lag improves a bit, currently it's way too unpredictable.
