Sifu Update 1.08 is Out Now

SifuSloclap’s latest update has introduced a healthy dose of new content for Sloclap’s martial arts beat ’em up. New difficulty options are available for players fighting their way through Sifu or those looking for an even greater challenge, and the new advanced training mode will be helpful for players looking to hone their skills before their next playthrough.

Sifu was released on February 8th and received positive reviews from critics and players thanks to its challenging and deep combat, rewarding progression, immersive environments and competent AI. Developed by Sloclap, the same team behind the martial arts multiplayer game reliever, Sifu is a story about a child’s search for revenge for the death of his father. Each time the protagonist dies, they age and become slightly weaker, eventually possibly dying permanently and ending the playthrough if they get too old. The game uses a complex and authentic Bak Mei-style kung foo combat system with over 150 possible moves to master.

The latest update for Sifu has brought some new features into play. Perhaps most notable is the inclusion of several new difficulty levels: Student, Disciple, and Master. This should be a relief for players who were hoping for adjustable difficulty levels Sifu. The original default difficulty of Sifu matches student difficulty, so players now have the option to run easier with the student setting or step up a level by opting for master difficulty. Apprentice difficulty increases life and structure for the player, reduces enemy aggression and reaction, simplifies boss patterns, and caps the death meter. Master Difficulty does the exact opposite, introducing new patterns for bosses.


The new advanced training mode introduced with this update also builds players’ Kung Foo skills, thanks to the ability to face any enemy or boss they’ve defeated in the story, including multiple opponents at once. This addition should help players fine-tune their strategies to face more difficult opponents on later playthroughs. Some important quality of life improvements have also been implemented, such as: B. the in-game menus, which now have dark mode, ultra-wide resolution support, and 5.1 surround sound support. PC player from Sifu can dodge and parry a bit easier thanks to better mouse and keyboard support and HUD readability.


After over a million sales of the game since its release Sifu has proven to be a hit among fans of martial arts games, and continued support through major updates shows Sloclap strives to refine its game based on player feedback. Players can expect future Sifu Updates to fix more bugs and add more features while the modding community is also hard at work making interesting mods for Sifu.
