  • There is an issue where when “War Maiden’s Costume” is worn together with “YoRHa Unit Number Two Standard Armor (COLOR2)” or “YoRHa Unit Number Two Skirtless (COLOR2)”, the parts sink very deep into the body of the character wearing them. We will fix this issue by disallowing to wear these parts together.

It will be the same setting as the (COLOR1) version.

  • We will fix an issue where some arm parts would not be displayed properly when they are worn together with “Purge Half-Armor”.
  • With this update, “Rubber Mask” and “Destruction Mask” will not be able to be worn together.

This change will not affect the variations of character appearance a player can create, as they are the combination that, when worn together, would not be displayed.

We will enforce bans on players who have been confirmed to have violated the EULA that is agreed upon when they first play the game. Please note that players who are repeatedly reported to have violated the EULA are subject to the ban once we confirm such violation has actually taken place.

We are continuously checking and investigating other unexpected issues. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
