The God Eater 3 version 1.40 update will launch on June 28, Bandai Namco announced during the latest God Eater series official broadcast.
As previously detailed, the version 1.40 update adds a new Time Attack Missions and new costumes.
Here is an overview of Time Attack, via our previous coverage:
Time Attack missions display the HP of the Aragami beneath the Aragami’s name, which not only makes it easy to figure out the best way to defeat an Aragami, but also take into account the enjoyment of those watching you play. Each mission has a target time, and awards a gold, silver, or bronze medal depending on the results. The medal displayed to the left of the timer is the medal that can be won if the Aragami is defeated at that point in time. There is also a convenient “Restart” feature that allows you to restart the Time Attack mission mid-fight.
The new costumes consist of sporty and Code Vein-themed attire:
The update also includes a large list of balance updates and adjustments.
Bandai Namco previously teased that it has more updates plans for God Eater 3 post-version 1.40. Today, the company confirmed a second season of free updates are planned.
A series of “Additional Episodes” will be released, starting with the Claire episode via the version 2.00 update this fall, followed by the Hugo and Zeke episodes via the version 2.10 update sometime after that, and episodes for other characters after that. These episodes revolve around “Core Engage” and focus on interaction with your teammates.
In addition to the episodes, the second season of free updates will also include new costumes, accessories, Class Certification and Time Attack Missions, and Aragami—including Ash Forged Barbarius Ira in the version 2.00 update and Ash Forged Vajra in the version 2.10 update.
