Soul Sacrifice Patch Upgrade’s The Game’s Interface

By Spencer . June 2, 2013 . 4:00pm

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has a patch ready for Soul Sacrifice that modifies the game’s features. The update changes the design of the compass plus shows human-like enemies, gives more canned phrases for text chat, and you can see rewards for quests.

An extra story episode titled the Savior of Heresy focuses on the secret society called Avalon. A sacrifice is about to take place in the Sanctuary. While sneaking into the Sanctuary you meet a woman called Elaine.

  • I hope this doesn’t take 6 months to roll out to other countries, they needed more text chat options and it’s finally here

  • I have the game but I haven’t played it much since clearing it. Been playing Warframe, but I might come back to test the patch. I didn’t really put in the effort to see the online community about coordinating things, but petty conversation about whether all Blue or all Red was the best whatever was pretty boring.

  • ShadowDivz

    We just got the first patch.
    Whateves im glad we are diving into Avalon.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      Yea I was so confused why a bit of things changed recently. But it does make things a bit “cleaner”.

    • Tyler Beale

      You’d think they’d have the game (and the patches) released at the same time(s) worldwide, but no…..

      • TheExile285

        Maybe because the game wasn’t released at the same time worldwide?

        • Tyler Beale

          I was including releasing the game at around the same time.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      They just need to patch in “Get the hell off my monster I was planning a counter attack you dickhead!” on the chat and I’ll be sorted

      • ShadowDivz


      • xXDGFXx

        This is what’s wrong with soul sacrifice: the score system. Insufficient points = less/no resources. That, and the lack of shared sacrifice/save when downing the same monster that isn’t a boss…

  • TheExile285


    I want some more costumes though

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Why, hello Nurse! Definitely interested in hearing Elaine’s story. And I hope they keep adding extra story content for free like this as well.

  • SilentMC

    Finally! I found it a little disorientating going between the different UI’s in the Japanese and English version, awesome it’s now matched up.

  • tubers

    I wish there’d be a whole page (or half) for personally customized text chat.

    I also feel that the minimap should be more bigger but have about half the opacity.

  • heartless141

    i just wish they unlock the online region lock (even after everyone got the same version is fine). i don’t really feel like buying another version to play with other friends =,=

  • vileBrenman

    Cool More story missions

  • Rohan Kishibe


    • Testsubject909

      The lore is also wonderful.

  • benhofb

    Ooohlala, this seems pretty nice. The first patch added the compass, but the new one seems to be a lot better now that it displays other info. I really love how much the devs are supporting this game! It seems like every week we’re hearing about new DLC or a new feature-adding patch! I hope they keep it up.

    • Ibi Salmon

      Wow. I haven’t heard someone say that about DLC in a long while.

      • benhofb

        Well, hey. Its all free, so no complaints here.

        • Ibi Salmon

          I concur. However, I’ve often heard complaints about DLC even if it is free. It seems to indicate a “rushed” or “unfinished” game regardless of how the game stands without the DLC content, at least to some people.

  • Abyan Haidar

    so… is this Elaine is the one who against Avalon? That another Secret Sect that saves monster?

    • Syltique

      I want to join. I save all monsters. Trying to get to 99 divine.

  • SHSL Big Bro

    Upgrade’s? Shouldn’t the title say ‘upgrades’ ?

  • 無尽合体ブランタコブスキ

    The compass is the most useless thing ever. I still have no idea where exactly on the map I am with it.

    I wish they’d improve the offerings and sigils pages instead so that they go together. There’s no reason not to have it like that.

    Lastly, If they make chat presets editable then it’d be a good patch. So far the improvements have been so minor that it hardly impacts anything at all.

    • Testsubject909

      Well, I can understand why the Offerings and Sigil pages are separate, same with Dark Rites.

      They’re… well… Different sorts of equipment. Offerings are like your ammo, your offensive active weapons with a risk of destruction. Sigils are your passive buffs and it focuses entirely on your arm and your arm’s status.

      There’s plenty of reason why they’d be separate. Just like how the Dark Rites are a separate page themselves….

      • 無尽合体ブランタコブスキ

        The other stuff are fine on their own but I feel that offerings and sigils should go hand in hand because for every set of offerings I have there’s another set of sigils that go with it.
        Even if they keep the pages separate for offerings/sigils but make it so that you could bind them together into one preset, it’d be a big improvement.

  • artemisthemp

    I hope EU/US won’t have to wait long for this patch, since I really want to hear Elaine story

  • KuroNathan

    oh boy more char specific souls. I’m still trying to get anguis SE+ and LE+ =/

  • The secret society is called “Sanctuary”, and they oppose “Avalon”. Fix that in the article!
