Sifu Final Update Patch 1.24 Released

Sifu, the critically acclaimed martial arts roguelike, has received its final update patch 1.24. The update adds a number of new features and content, including six new dynamic Arenas, 75 new challenges, four new cheats, and three new modifiers.

The fresh Arenas serve as formidable trials, assessing players’ proficiency and mastery of the game’s combat mechanics. Within each Arena lies a distinct layout teeming with diverse adversaries, all of whom must be vanquished to advance.

These novel challenges introduce an innovative method for evaluating players’ abilities and reaping valuable rewards. These trials span a spectrum of complexity, from straightforward to intricate, constantly urging players to reach their utmost potential.

The four new cheats allow players to play the game in new and different ways. For example, the Free Throw cheat allows players to unconditionally throw their foes, while the Vampire modifier decreases players’ age every time they kill an enemy.

The three new modifiers add new challenges to the game. For example, the No Master Strikes modifier prevents players from using Master Strikes, while the No Counters modifier prevents players from countering enemy attacks. Check out the full changelog below.
