Be like water
We expected Sifu to be challenging — but we didn't think it would be this unforgiving. It's a classic tale of martial arts revenge told across several urban stages, each one boasting unique combat encounters and brutal bosses. If you thought that Sifu was going to be a pure kung fu power fantasy, you're in for a world of hurt. Sifu...
Help, hints, and tips for Sifu
Sifu can be an extremely difficult game, particularly in the beginning. It poses a steep learning curve from the start, and we're willing to be that just about everyone who plays it will hit a brick wall when they get to the second boss — or thereabouts. Luckily for you, we've poured hours into Sifu and we've got...

Plus or minus?
The third month of 2024 is upon, and the PS Plus Essential games for March have been confirmed. There are technically four titles up for grabs from Tuesday next week, and as is usually the case, there's a lot of variety on display. But are you happy with this latest offering? To recap, subscribers can look forward to excellent...
Including one from Absolver
Sifu developer SloClap is celebrating the intricate brawler's second anniversary by confirming two final outfits are being added to the game today. While it was thought support for the PS5, PS4 game was being wrapped up in September last year, the studio today announced sales have surpassed three million units, so the...
Back in the fight
It's widely believed that Sifu developer SloClap is done with the game — after 18 months of fantastic post-launch support, we should add — and so this new message posted to the title's social media accounts has raised some eyebrows. "It's that time of the year again, and we have quite a few surprises to share with you in the...
You can't fault SloClap's dedication to Sifu, can you? The game's post-launch support has been stellar, with big, free updates expanding the intricate brawler in significant ways. Today marks the release of the title's final patch, and you can download it right now on PS5 and PS4. The so-called 'Final Update' (fitting!) adds six new...
The final content update for Sloclap’s strongly supported martial arts hit Sifu will punch PS5 and PS4 from 7th September – and it’s not going down without a fight! “The Arenas Mode expands its boundaries unveiling more unseen locations and introducing ferocious battles against familiar goons, bosses, and unexpected faces,” the...
Yet more to master
It's time to go back to Sifu. Again. The martial arts action game just keeps on giving, and its latest update, titled the Arenas Expansion, is available to download now. The patch adds "45 merciless challenges spread over five game modes", breathing yet more life into what is already a highly replayable brawler. Here's the...
Arenas of violence
Another big update for Sifu is on the way, and it just got a confirmed release date. Launching on the 28th March, the action title's 'Arenas Expansion' adds a new range of combat challenges. "With 9 new locations and 45 merciless challenges spread over 5 game modes, the Arenas Expansion is packing up to 10 extra hours of gameplay...
Don't think, feel
We were pretty much sold on Sifu as soon as it was revealed. A gritty but stylised martial arts revenge movie in video game form? Of course we'll give it a go. And we did indeed give it a go — over and over and over again. What we're saying is that Sifu is a difficult game, but don't let that put you off! Persevere with this...
Coming in March
Sifu has already received a handful of major updates since launch, but developer Sloclap isn't finished yet. It's announced another big new update, this time adding a new mode named Arenas. Coming to the game for free in March, Arenas appears to be exactly what it sounds like — a series of challenges in, well, arenas, pushing...
The third big title update for Sifu is out now on PS5 and PS4. The so-called 'Fall Update' adds a bunch of stuff, including new costumes, additional gameplay modifiers, and even some cheats. 'Vampire' mode decreases your age when you defeat a foe, 'Touch of Death' makes enemies die with a single blow, and 'Free Throw' lets you throw your...
Is one life enough to have Kung Fu?
Whether you choose to play as a male or a female character, in Sifu, you will ponder that question on your path for revenge, hunting down your family’s assassins. One against all, you have no allies, countless enemies, and a mysterious amulet to bring you back to life every time you die. Yet, be warned! Your secret weapon comes with a hefty price to pay: aging and its consequences.
Learning by fire
Your enemies don’t wait their turn, and they don’t broadcast their intent. Dodge, parry, strike, use combos and be like water making its way through captivating environments. Learn how to master your art, whether by fighting through the underbelly of a nightclub, scrambling through a refined gallery to avoid getting surrounded, or vertically navigating a towering office building.
Adaptation is survival
Careful positioning and clever use of the environment to your advantage are key to your survival. Use everything at your disposal: throwable objects, makeshift weapons, windows and ledges... The odds are stacked against you, and you will be offered no mercy.
Training never ends
