Sifuthe hardcore martial arts game released earlier this year is getting difficulty modes on May 3rd as part of a major content update. This was announced by developer Sloclap on Tuesday. The game has been criticized for its challenging difficulty, so hopefully the new modes will make the game more accessible.
As part of the May 3rd update, the game will receive Apprentice, Apprentice, and Master difficulties, although it’s unclear exactly how the modes will be balanced against each other. However, if I had to guess, they mean “easy”, “intermediate” and “hard” modes.
I was a big fan of the game’s difficulty at launch. It was hard, but I loved going through the game’s levels multiple times to improve. When I defeated the final boss of the game, I jumped out of my seat in celebration. However, along the way, I became frustrated a lotand I’m happy that Sloclap is adding difficulty options that will likely make it easier for others to experience the game.
The May 3rd update will also add “extended training”, the ability to choose outfits, and a new outfit for Standard Edition owners and one for Deluxe Edition owners. Sloclap is planned four major content updates in 2022, one timed with each season. The summer update will add gameplay modifiers that could give people who have given up the game a new reason to get back in. The fall update will add a replay editor. And the winter update will add a mode called Arenas, although Sloclap hasn’t explained what it’s all about. All updates are free, Says Sloclap.
