Whether you’re currently playing Rise of the Ronin or are thinking about jumping into it in the near future, you’ll definitely benefit from its latest update. From tweaking skills to improving the game’s camera, Rise of the Ronin update 1.04 has the lot, and we’ve got the full patch notes.

An open world game in which you get to live the life of a samurai, we already thought Rise of the Ronin was bloody good, hence giving it 8/10 in our review. A number of updates have been released for the game since then, with the latest, update 1.04, being the meatiest of them yet, and they’ve all improved the game further still.

With update 1.04 installed, Rise of the Ronin players will find that Martial Arts Skills are improved across the board. So, no matter which weapons you wield, you’ll probably want to start using them more. There’s some bad news as well, though: in the name of balance, some skills that were deemed over-tuned have been toned down.

In addition to improving Martial Arts Skills and tweaking weapons in various ways, there are a whole host of other changes in update 1.04 too. Players will find that their character is more responsive and controls better in a wide variety of situations, for example. The camera has also been improved, particularly when players find themselves near a wall. And there are many, many bug fixes.

Check out the full patch notes for Rise of the Ronin update 1.04, courtesy of the Team Ninja X account, below, which are so vast that they’re spread across four pages.
