One of 2022’s most critically-acclaimed releases, which recently surpassed more than 2 million sales worldwide, Sifu is bringing more to players with its fourth free major update since its launch in addition to the Arenas Expansion including new outfits, achievements, quality of life improvements and Chinese Cantonese voice-over. Also debuting in today’s update are 28 new cheats to unlock new character moves and more, as well as nine new gameplay modifiers allowing players to bend the rules of the game. Players can also hone their advanced skills with new lessons in the training room, experience they’ll need to tackle the hordes of enemies – which sport improved AI – across both the main game and the Arenas content.
A beat ‘em up tale of vengeance set to a backdrop of a fictional Chinese city, Sifu places players in the shoes of a young Pak Mei Kung Fu student who, following the murder of their master, embarks on an epic quest for revenge. To overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, fighters need to rely on a mastery of Kung Fu and a magical pendant that revives them after death. But revenge comes at a price, exacted through defeat and the power of the pendant. With every failure, players will rise again, older and wiser, though with fewer years to spare than before. What is vengeance worth to you?
Sifu is available now on Xbox consoles, PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store as well as on PlayStation consoles and Nintendo Switch. For more information, please visit www.sifugame.com and check out @sifugame on Twitter.
