Patch 3441 released!

Hey gang!
Thanks to everyone that has helped us track down some issues with the game, including that nasty end of round control point crash. We're still trying to find a fix for the Steam Validation Rejected issue. In the mean time, enjoy this new patch!

Gameplay
  • Free For All: Players now move faster when they are sheathed.
  • Control Point: Players can now change who they view when dead.
  • Control Point: Music now changes depending on whether or not in combat.
  • Control Point: Spawn times scale based off of players currently playing.
  • Control Point: Players now spawn instantly during starting period and intermission.
  • Control Point: Added in-game health bars.
  • Throwables now require line of sight in order to lock on.
  • Merged in balance changes from community, see patch notes here.
Bug Fixes
  • Control Point: Fixed a crash that happened if someone was spectating at the end of a round.
  • Control Point: Fixed a bug causing tickets to never stop flashing if points were all capped.
  • Control Point: Fixed a bug causing blue HUD points to replay particle effect after pausing.
  • Fixed a collision problem with the catwalks on free_district
Known Issues
  • Users occasionally receive a “Steam Validation Rejected” issue when connecting to a server using Pure workshop items.
  • Users can work around this by disabling/detaching the Pure workshop items before joining a server from the main menu.

  • Control Point mode: Updated all “capture point” localization text to say “control point”.
  • Control Point mode: Number of tickets flash when your tickets are low or all control points have been captured by the opposing team.
  • Timer flashes and produces sound when time is low in any mode.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed HUD not updating properly during intermission.
  • Fixed Control Point bug related to opposing teams capping two points at the same time.
  • Fixed new attachments becoming invisible when a workshop skin has been selected.
  • Fixed new attachments becoming invisible when a workshop skin has been selected.
  • Fixed new attachments becoming invisible when a workshop skin has been selected.

Known Issues

Prove you are the world's greatest swordsman in Blade Symphony: a slash-em-up featuring a highly detailed and in-depth sword fighting system. Face down other players in tactical swordplay, 2 versus 2 team duels, sandbox FFA, or the Control Points game mode!

Choose your fighting style

Each of the four characters have a unique fighting style suited to how you want to play.
  • Phalanx, a fencer gladiator hybrid, attacks with long range stabs and a versatile array of side attacks
  • Judgement, a knight crossed with a samurai, uses hard hitting forward attacks and wide strafing attacks
  • Ryoku, a vagrant street ninja, attacks with break dance moves and a signature reverse blade style
  • Pure, an acrobatic wushu style assassin that attacks with flips, cartwheels, extremely mobile

Each character has four combat stances and over forty different attacks.

Choose Your Sword

Pair your character up with a sword type to completely change your way of approaching combat.
  • Katana, cause massive damage when parrying your opponents
  • Longsword, a well-balanced, hard hitting and adaptable sword
  • Rapier, a piercing, high damage forward thrusting weapon great for parrying
  • Scimitar, a weapon based on turning and performing as many cuts as possible
  • Jian, an agile, responsive weapon great for combos

Tactical Sword Fighting


There are no unlockable advantages in Blade Symphony. All unlockables are cosmetic. You care about proving your skill and so should your game.

Every attack has openings that are determined in real-time and efficacy is entirely up to you. Did you start an attack too early? Turn away and end the attack in a safe location. Did your opponent stupidly use a lighter stance? Go in and punish him! By switching stances mid-combo you can chain attacks into your own flurry of death.



The fighting system is open for your exploration, you can dash, jump, do an air attack, land, swing sideways with a heavy stance, parry with a light stance, and then roll away.

Every attack flows from your blade in true three dimensional space. As does your opponents! Swords collide in mid-air and you will need good timing and aim to defeat your opponent.

Advanced Character Customization

Customize your character with skins, masks, swords, and multiple attachments streamed directly from Steam Workshop.

Fight as a Team

Play in the new Control Points game mode and participate in team-based sword fighting.

Imagine Blade Symphony as Japanese Classical Literature.
(+)
It's all about Artistic, Beauty, and Process.
Artistic : Stances, Wall-run, Sword/Characters Mastery
Beauty : Try pressing the "B" before battle
Process : For the first hrs or hundred hrs of gameplay, you'll literally get ur ♥♥♥ kicked by some old men...unless if ure a genius, well at least i'm not a genius.

(-)
-Sometimes animations are weird
-This game is pretty stupid when it runs on 140-150ms or higher.

since i don't know what i'm talking about, i'm gonna end this review.
9/10, play this game.

I a werid relationship with Fighting Games. I love how it brings mind games from RTS, 4X and Chess down to a simpllistic pure intense reaction based form but I hate at the same time outside of Smash Bros most fighting Games require you to learn A LOT of pointless combos that feels more like a History Memorization than fun. Blade Sympony is simple to control but very hard to master. The combos are more in how you use your movesets since at any time you can use a heavy, blanced, fast and Air not to mentions the air cancel of first three. This is fighing game that gets the complex parts right but at the same time is much more easy to understand the funimentals of combat and excute them over say Tekken or traditional 2D fighters. I have learned a lot and still learn a lot but I enjoy this game because it requires you to more of learn what you should do to bait the other guy in and that combacks are common if not very possable always in Blade Sympony.

Grab your favorite Sword from the Workshop and slash on.

Blade Symphony this game is worth paying attention especially those who like fighting on swords. Very dynamic and exciting battles unless you find a worthy opponent. I think that the game is worth the money and I would put the estimate of 9/10.

This game is very funny. I tried it out when it was free at weekend and i can say that i love it. I bought it for 3.47 or something like that so I can improve.

For everyone who likes being a little bit competitive sometimes and wants to see progress in his work : Go buy it! The game doesn't really "help" u to get in the game. Tutorial gives u the basics and the Training sessions with bots are boring and easy. But as soon as u enter a server u will love it. U'll search for competetors and duel one after another. You will improve by every mistake and it won't get boring that fast, because everyone got his own fighting style... some go more agressive some stay more defensively ; sure u will say right now " then there are noobs who take forfeits in sitting in one corner" , and i can easily say that this is not true. Why u may ask? The game gives u everything u need to take or make forfeits. U can win every (EVERY) fight. I play with my brothers and friends and we compete with each other and others on the internet. The game is worth it's cost so go ahead and buy it.

This Game is Beautiful, to any Sword Art Online Fans, FPS fans, or any other combat game fans, this is for you, and I’ve never seen a combat engine so well executed as this. Its sword game (duh) were you have to have both skill and strategy to climb the leaderboards. While the game has no real goal like to fight for, I can't stop playing and striving to get better.

well. . if i can say one thing about this game is that this is the first game ive seen where people dont instantly make pe'nis swords the second they enter the workshop. this game is a pretty cool twist on fighting games because its a third person fighting game, it reminds me of marvel vs capcom combind with soul calibur 5 but with only 4 character's, each with 5 different play styles depending on what sword your useing :sword list: "foil, katana (sucks),long sword,simitar,and jian" it sucks that this game has little to no community, its pretty fun to play with friends and fun to play online, and it has some pretty good online, its pretty fun

Its an interesting idea. You enter a map, and then you can either just go around fighting other players without restrictions (server-specific rules and etiquette may vary), or challenge them for a proper duel.

The graphics are nice and there are buttloads of custom content (thank you steam workshop for making installing them so easy).

As for gameplay, the swordfighting isn't as smooth as chivalry or mount & blade, and the jumps and parkour aren't as smooth as warframe (when its not lagging like hell or when you are not with a ♥♥♥♥ton of alien dogs trying to get a piece of your ♥♥♥), but the gameplay is pretty damn solid.

If the only thing holding you back from buying this game is the price, wait for a sale.

So far I have fallen in love with Blade Symphony. It has its fair share of issues, but those are all outweighed by the excellent combat mechanics. There are four fighters all with very unique fighting styles, and strengths and weaknesses. There are also five different types of swords each fitting to different fighters in unique and interesting way. There are, however, some issues, for one, offline play There is an AI to practice against but it is incredibly bad, you have to set up what the AI will do, you can for example set it to attack or defend, it cannot do both, making it effectively useless. Also the player community is fairly small, which is sad, I have played ten hours so far and I have already run into some people I recognize repeatedly, but overall I love Blade Symphony's combat mechanics, and that's what sells it for me.

The tutorial might not be the most informative, but once you get the hang of the game you just get reeled in by the fun of it. I got this game on sale luckily but this game is still definately worth a buy without the sale IMO.

Excelent game, it's all about strategy and there's no level-grinding involved. All customisations are purely aesthetic and don't make any player have more chances to win than any other.
