Patchnotes via Steam Community

Hello folks, The Baron here and I am happy to present to you the fruits of KospY's labour these last months: Update 6 is now live! Here is a look at the main features, and a full changelog is at the bottom. Cheers!

Main Features

Climbing 2.0 - New grip system that allows you to grip anything that makes sense

Half-Swording - grip weapons anywhere, even the blade

Physic based hand and fingers + index controller ("knuckles") support

Return of the beloved kick!

Foot tracked kicking support (using at least 1 tracker)

Full body tracking support (using up to 3 trackers)

Weapon storage - You can now spawn any weapon from a menu, also mod compatible!

Large weapon rack - Store and save your favourite weapons from your home

New Weapons
Maul, new Claymore and reworked dual blade

Full SteamVR 2.0 support - You can bind keys to any action from SteamVR

Native plugins and custom assets support

With the first version of the SDK, modders will be able to create their own weapons and/or write custom code for them, without the need of a any third party tool. Just drop plugins, assets and JSON into the corresponding folder and you are good to go!

More information and link to the SDK will be posted in the next coming days on Discord.

Vortex modding support

The nexus mod team was really nice and worked hard to add Blade & Sorcery support to Vortex! Big thanks to them for their support :)

And finally, totally a feature and 100% not just some bug that KospY left in because it's hilarious, ːsteammockingː I give to you:

Ear Grabbing!
