The Summer Update for Sloclap’s action-adventure beat ’em up Sifu is now live on PC, PS4, and PS5. It’s discounted on the Epic Games Store and PlayStation Store for this week, which makes it a good time to jump in.

Two new gameplay features are available – a Scoring System and Cheats/Modifiers. The former evaluates your performance and provides a high score after a hideout. The latter provides some interesting ways to modify your gameplay. Upon completing the game, you’ll find a menu for the same in the level select screen along with Goals.

Completing these Goals will net currency to purchase the Cheats and Modifiers. There are eight Cheats and 11 Modifiers, along with two “Student-only” Modifiers to unlock. In addition, two new outfits have been added with their own unlock conditions (with one exclusive to the Deluxe Edition).

Check out the full patch notes below for more details. Further updates are coming in Fall and Winter, adding a replay editor and the new Arenas mode. For more details on the latter, head here.

Sifu Summer 2022 Update

Full list of changes:

Design – Outfits:

  • Added 2 new outfits with unlock conditions (1 deluxe)

Design – Scoring:

  • Score: The player gains score for each action performed. The value depends on many factors such as the frequency of use or ease of access.
  • Multiplier & Multiplier Gauge: The gauge increases every time the player gains score. Filling up the gauge increases the multiplier. The gauge decreases when the player is too passive or gets hit.
  • Efficiency: The score and the multiplier gauge change color depending on the efficiency of the player to gain score.
  • Highscore: The player is able to set a highscore for all the hideouts. The high score is displayed in the Level Selection screen in the Wuguan.

Design – Cheats/Modifiers:

  • Modifiers menu added and is accessible from the level select screen after clearing the game at least once. The Modifiers menu is available from the start in Student difficulty, but only a few accessibility-oriented Modifiers are available before you reach the end of the game.
