When Team Ninja said a new update for Rise of the Ronin would arrive this week, we didn’t think it meant today. Nevertheless, Ver. 1.05 is out now and adds many impressive quality-of-life improvements and new content.

For example, the new Ally missions involve teaming up in Midnight difficulty and taking out enemies in Honmachi, Honjo and Honnoji. “Path of Chaos” features different enemies each time, while “Eternal Night” promises to be the “most difficult mission thus far.” As for the two new set bonuses, the Precious Dragon set grants Last Ditch Counterspark (which allows for one final use when out of Ki), reduces the Max Ki of enemies after a Grapple Attack and upgrades your Counterspark.

The Ferocious Tiger set grants the Blade Flash attack, an upgraded forward dodge, an attack increase after a Martial Skill Swap and Ki Regeneration on Blade Flash. You can also train against opponents in the Dojo, like your Blade Twin and even some bosses exclusive to Bond Missions.

Check out the full patch notes in the tweet below for more details, including weapon adjustments and bug fixes. Rise of the Ronin is available for PS5 – you can read our review, where we gave it a 6 out of 10, here.
