Trails of Cold Steel II Version 1.1 Patch Notes

Hi everyone!

I hope you are enjoying Trails of Cold Steel II.
As is almost always the case, some issues managed to sneak into the final release, the most significant of which were crashes that can occur with non-default costumes and accessory attachments. The reason for these has been found and fixed in version 1.1, together with several other bug fixes and improvements.

Complete Patch Notes for Version 1.1
  • Fix memory corruption issue when performing specific costume/accessory equip/unequip sequences (either manually or automatically in a cutscene). This fixes a variety of potential crashes.
  • Fix launcher gamepad button rebinding interface to only allow rebindings that are 1 to 1 mappings of buttons to actions, as only these are supported by the game. If you have an existing rebinding which doesn't work, please revert it to the defaults first.
  • Add around 25 additional voiced lines, which were missing in 1.0.
  • Minor performance improvements, particularly when loading and the game is installed on the primary system HDD/SSD.
  • Reduce visual artifacts (Z-fighting) on top windows at the Valflame Palace.
  • Extend running distance of Lloyd and Rixia in cutscene (EV_05_06_01).
  • Remove (defunct) "Cross-save" functionality from the chapter intermission menus.
  • Better synchronization for the "Now loading" renderer, improving stability.
  • Adjust launcher help text to be platform-independent (ie. not to refer to Steam functionality in the GoG release).
  • Change game executable icon to prevent misunderstandings.

Version 1.1 is available now.

Note on Reverting to Previous Versions
While we of course aim for each new version to only solve issues and provide improvements over all previous ones, it is always possible for something to break on some particular configuration.
Therefore, we keep all versions available as Beta branches in Steam. Should an update lead to issues on your system, you can revert to a previous branch by selecting "Properties" -> "Betas" in the Steam library and choosing a version from the drop down menu. If you can confirm that the new version caused a problem, please report it as a regression.

About This Game

Peace is but a memory.

In the wake of the Noble Faction’s occupation of Heimdallr, civil war has broken out across Erebonia. The provincial armies, loyal to the aristocracy and the Four Great Houses, have claimed many of the nation’s great cities in the name of the Noble Alliance. The Imperial Army, called back from the four corners of the Empire, has only just begun its sweeping counterattack.

After Rean managed to escape Trista with Celine and Valimar, he awakens in the mountains near his hometown uncertain what fate befell his friends, who bravely threw themselves in harm’s way to buy him time to flee.

Though the road will not be an easy one, Rean decides to take up his sword again, journeying across Erebonia with his Divine Knight, Valimar, in search of his friends from Class VII and a way to end the conflict before its price becomes far too dear…


Taking place on the same continent as the fan favorite Trails in the Sky offshoot of Nihon Falcom’s storied The Legend of Heroes franchise, Trails of Cold Steel II (Sen no Kiseki II in Japanese) is a direct sequel to Trails of Cold Steel, picking up one month after the decisive collision that changed the fate of the entire nation of Erebonia. The speedy, tactical turn-based combat with the newly-developed “ARCUS” system returns with all the bells and whistles together with the new Overdrive mode, new means of transportation both across the land and sky, new allies, new dangers, and a renewed sense of hope as Rean tirelessly works to right the wrongs that have led the country to disarray.


  • A Direct Sequel that Remembers the Past
    Clear data from Trails of Cold Steel carries over into Trails of Cold Steel II, granting players bonuses, and most importantly, remembering the many relationships cultivated during time spent at Thors Military Academy, allowing for more personalized conversations throughout the story.

  • Take to the Land and Sky in New Modes of Transportation
    Fast travel isn’t just for Trista anymore; a personalized airship now allows players to swiftly choose and descend upon both familiar and foreign destinations alike—and on land, horseback riding not only returns, but players can now customize and utilize Angelica’s orbal bike for fast transportation across the map.

  • The Link System Returns with a new Overdrive Mode
    Bonding with allies continues to pay off with the Combat Link System, netting a variety of combat benefits including healing, guarding, and more, and the new Overdrive mode allows linked characters to attack up to three turns in a row for new strategic battle options.

  • Experience the Game as Never Before
    50% more lines of English voice-overs have been added to the PC release, bringing a fresh experience to even those who have played it before on console. New features for this release include ultrawide aspect ratio support, turbo mode, and an instant resume feature that allows players to launch directly from Steam to their most recent save.
