SloClap showcased some more gameplay from its upcoming action fighter Sifu on Twitter. By popular request, the protagonist is shown combating foes in the gallery. Along with pulling an enemy to the side, the player can also slide into and trip them up before finishing off another foe with a counterattack of sorts.
If the combat looks familiar, it’s because SloClap previously delivered Absolver, another action fighting game with a more open-ended premise. Sifu is more story-focused with a young Kung-Fu student pursuing revenge, venturing to different areas in the city – from suburbs to skyscrapers – to battle enemies. It seems that there’s only one day to exact revenge though the circumstances aren’t yet known.
Along with hand-to-hand combat, the player can use the environment to gain an edge, from throwing objects to utilizing them as improvised weapons. As players progress, they’ll learn new techniques and skills to overwhelm their foes. Sifu is currently slated to release this year for PS4, PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
Under popular demand, more badass gallery action 😎
