MercurySteam has released a new update for Metroid Dread, provides three new modes for fans to challenge themselves with. Boss Rush, as the name indicates, is about fighting bosses in one continuous order. There are 12 in total with damage carrying over between fights (though ammo is restored in between).

If you’re having trouble with any particular boss, then it’s possible to fight them solo in “Practice” mode. Survival Rush is a time trial-esque mode where the player competes to eliminate as many bosses as possible in five minutes. Damage received and ammo spent over between fights but you will receive a bonus time after defeating a boss (which can increase if no damage is taken).

Finally, Dread Rush is usually Boss Rush mode but one-hit kill rules. Take a single hit and it’s game over. Once again, it’s possible to take on bosses from Dread Rush, one-on-one, in “Practice” mode. Boss Rush is unlocked upon completing the game while Survival Rush requires completing Boss Rush or Dread Rush. Dread Rush is unlocked by finishing the game on Dread Mode.
