Publisher Nintendo and developer MercurySteam have released a free update for Metroid Dread, which adds two new difficulty modes. A second free update will follow in April, which adds a “Boss Rush” mode.
Here are the details, via Nintendo:
A free update launches today for Metroid Dread! Getting hit even once causes a game over in the brutal “Dread Mode” difficulty. And if you’re new to the Metroid series, take advantage of increased recovery with the newly added “Rookie Mode” difficulty.
A second free update in April will add a Boss Rush mode, in which you’ll battle bosses continuously, one at a time.
Metroid Dread is available for Switch.
