Metroid Dread was one of the best games of 2021, but it was also one of the most challenging games of the year. There was a contingent of people out there who wished the game was easier so they could enjoy it better, but at the same time, there were many who adored the game’s difficulty, and may even have wished for more. No matter which side of the debate you fall on, you’re going to have something new to be happy about.

Nintendo has made the surprise announcement of a free new update for Metroid Dread, which is live now and adds new difficulty modes. Dread Mode sees Samus dying the moment she gets hit regardless of how much health she has left, while Rookie Mode, as its name suggests, provides a much more easygoing experience for those who want to play with the game but might not be looking for too much of a challenge.

In addition to all of this, the game will also be adding a Boss Rush Mode in April for free- so there’s plenty of reasons to go back to Metroid Dread (or perhaps try it for the first time) in the near future.

Metroid Dread is available on Nintendo Switch. You can read our review of the game through here.
