ACE Team And Atlus Announce Free Zeno Clash II Update On PC Brings 2 Challenge Modes And Trading Cards To Game

ACE Team and Atlus have announced a free update for Zeno Clash II is out now on Steam. this update brings:

Frame-rate Challenge Mode:
Sometimes the internet leaks into games and even Zeno Clash II can't escape. In this unique challenge, surreal wireframe enemies begin spawning with increasing frequency. The enemies still require skill to beat, but the waves are only limited by one thing: the PC's performance. Eking every last ounce of computational horsepower will be the key to surviving as long as possible in this highly unusual challenge.

Colosseum Challenge Mode: 
This wave-based attack mode will push players to the limit. 50 waves of enemies will spawn, with increasing difficulty. True mastery of Zeno Clash II's first-person combat system of deadly combos will lead brawlers to victory, but there is some respite between rounds as players will have access to the store to buy weapons, power-ups, even allies. Unlike the game, there's no restriction on the number of allies either, so get ready for the most intense, all-out, battle royale in all of Zenozoik.

Trading Cards:
Zeno Clash II is the latest participant in Steam's new Trading Card system. Backgrounds, badges, chat items, and other Steam features unique to Zeno Clash II will be available to the dedicated players who unlock, bargain, trade and swap the Zeno Clash II cards to unlock badges and additional features for the game.
