Sifu Has No Difficulty Mode But That Might Change With An Update
Sifu is an extremely tough game for those who can’t master its combat, and this is why the developers are working on a difficulty mode.
If you haven’t played the game, make sure to go through our review which covers it. The gist of it is that this is an extremely competent and well-made game but it is held back by an artificially high difficulty and skill level. Chances are you won’t be able to beat the game in its current stage, but this is why there is some good news.
According to Stever Saylor, who is one of the leading advocates for accessibility in video games, Sifu is supposed to get an update post-launch that will add accessibility options and also bring easier and harder difficulty settings with a difficulty mode.
Hey! So it’s weird I get to help break news but yes #Sifu is getting #accessibility updates post-launch.
- Better captions
- High Contrast Mode on PS4/5 (was on PC, but not PS4/5 at launch due to a bug)
- Difficulty Modes. Both easier & harder, similar to Metroid Dread’s update.
So if you were having issues with the game, or found it less accessible due to some disability, that might change as the developers are planning to implement support for it in the game. This includes a High Contrast mode which was available on PC but not PS4 and PS5. It also implements better captions so they are easier to read on the screen.
Lastly, there will be an easy difficulty mode and a harder difficulty mode for Sifu, but we are not sure if this is going to replace the current difficulty or add to it.
