The first post-launch update for Sifu has arrived today on PlayStation 5 and PS4, bringing with it lots of minor changes under the hood. You can start downloading the patch now, with it weighing in at 752.3MB on PS5. Studio SloClap has targeted three areas with this first update: design, code, and the art and lighting.
A general round of polish and debugging has been done, with particular attention paid to the second level in The Club. Small tweaks are said to have been made, while bugs have been fixed in the boss fights against Sean and Kuroki. These are all accompanied by global optimization and crash fixes.
In the case of art and lighting, performance has been improved across the entire game, and again, there's some more polish and debugging being done.
In the responses on Twitter, SloClap replies to one fan asking about the "exclusive gift" for those who bought the Deluxe Edition but were then unable to play for a number of hours on launch day. The team will apparently tell us more about it "soon". How have you been finding Sifu? Managed to get past the second level? Show us your kung fu moves in the comments below.
Nice. I got to the third boss yesterday and my arse was royally handed to me again so I took a break 😂 I managed to do the first level without dying though and then played through the second to lower my age for the 3rd. Still really enjoying it the combat is so fun and the 3rd level has some great visual moments.
This game sounds really fun. I'd have jumped on it if HFW wasn't out this week but looking forward to getting hold of it further down the road. It's great that they continue to make improvements to it if there are things that need addressing.
If you want to update the article the Update History on PS4 has very detailed notes on what has been updated and why.
What a game! I got to the club at age 21 with max weapon durability. Then my museum age is 71... Sean hammered me!!!
Every time i read the comments section about this game i nearly buckle and get it. If there wasnt a physical on the Horizon not to mention a little game called Horizon on the horizon (too many horizons?) id have got it on release.
I finally made it to the museum but I am 75 😂 I must persevere
The level isn't that hard but the boss is hard.
Second level is a pain in the ass because there is not shortcuts at all and on top of that you have to face trial encounters on the way to the boss at the end
Not sure 100% but I noticed a change on the 2nd boss where is not doing one of the move sets he was doing before on the second phase like doing a low attack. So basically repeating the move sets of the 1st phase which makes it much more easier..
Surprisingly 1st time I did a full run on that level without dying manage to get the platinum yesterday
Loving the game! Managed to finish it under 25 years old and seen the secret ending by sparing all the bosses. Just can't seem to no death it though. Practise practise practise!
@Fatewalker there is a shortcut on the second level. To the right of the dancefloor is a double door with a card reader that uses the same card that you pick up mid way through the level (to get into the burning).
Great news, with all the releases coming thick and fast I decided to wait on this and have pre-ordered the physical edition. Looks awesome and it will only get better
@Loftimus oh I might be dumb was making my life much harder, can't believe anyway thanks for the heads-up!
@Fatewalker interesting that’s the one attack on the second boss I was still having real trouble avoiding. If that’s true he’ll be much easier.
I'll say this for the people stuck on the second boss . Unlock the ability to defend your self wile your on the ground . You will find the boss fight almost comically easy once he can't one shot you with his sweep and smash move
I've finally beat the game recently but the only two trophies I'm missing is killing Sean in level 2 "the club" (this trophy has bugged out on me annoyingly) and I'm missing the "beat the game aged 25 or under" I'm currently on the last level aged 25. So I either cannot die on the last boss or I have to keep trying to get younger.
I’m up to The Tower level. I can easily do the first and second levels now. Second level only people give me trouble is the woman with the pole and the 2 people right before the boss. Boss of level 2 is easy now. You can literally just stand in one spot and hold L1 and move stick left or right to dodge his strikes. Only attack him when he’s done with his combo. Get shrine upgrades for increase focus on evades and you build your focus super fast. And keep doing leg sweep focus when it’s up. Third level you can take elevator straight to the boss once you have elevator key.
Now that’s where I struggle. I can’t get the hang of third boss phase 1. I lose most of my lives there. Her second phase is much easier to dodge. My best is tower at age 53 and I don’t last too long there cause I already have a death multiplier of like 6 or 7 due to the third boss.
To defeat Sean I would dodge his combo holding L1 tapping back as he swung (no spam), then i would spam Triangle combo (knocks him off his feet), the ground attack him and repeat. Its the same thing with the 2nd form except you have to dodge his sweep attach with L1 & Up. Its always only the 1st attack of this combo, and sometimes follows the shoulder rush. Dont GIVE UP!
@render fun? What is fun when die in 1 shot and the learning process is unforgiving? Smdh
@huyi Sometimes you need to look harder to find the fun. How far have you got? From what I’ve heard most people are getting out of level 1 but struggling with 2. That will likely be me as well as I’m pretty average.
@Fenbops yes pretty annoying that one, but what you can do is when he starts the combo always block or parry the 1st / 2nd attack and then avoid the rest and then punish with heavy attacks
But pay attention at your posture and try to make some space to regain it, and then rinse and repeat
You can loose 1 life at either boss 3 or 4 then at 21years old on last boss you are allowed to die once first form and twice second form for 25 years. Also cheese the artist first form with a knife doing forward forward square Wich will stun her then triangle triangle. Rinse and repeat for a no hit/death first battle!
Well seem like with today new patch you can't cheese the artist anymore
Glad this game is still being actively patched, plan to pick it up during Summer or Christmas sales.
It seems on my end the update has made it more buggy and glitchy especially the third boss I've already beaten her but I ended up being like 45 the first time and this was before the update
The game is incredible. Love the steep learning curve! I can do level 1 and 2 with no deaths. Level 3 I died about 4 times. ( all at the boss, thanks to the elevator ) got to the end boss age 71. I survived for about 20 seconds. 🤣 but he was teasing me. Grrrr. 🤣
@Grimwood Sadly some games do stop being patched only after a few days beyond release.
