Bethesda Softworks brings in two game modes and tons of content to Hi-Fi RUSH to unlock by feeling the beat (as you beat down robotic baddies) with the Arcade Challenge Update.

Update! arrives now on July 5th as a free download for all Hi-Fi RUSH players. Haven’t yet experienced Tango Gameworks’ high-octane, music-powered brawler?

BRING ON THE BEATS PER MINUTE
BPM RUSH! features an increasingly challenging gauntlet of enemies, including some new baddies with some fearsome tricks. It’s not just the reinforcements each round that will test your skills: the beats-per-minute, or BPM, of the music, also increases. This means each round gets more intense as the enemy onslaught gets swifter AND your rhythm-amplified moves ramp up in speed.
You’d think you’d need a double pedal to keep up with later stages clocking up to 200 BPM, but keeping your cool is what’s essential: while enemy attacks are sped up with the increasing tempo, Hi-Fi RUSH’s action always remains synced to the beat. Maintaining control of the frenetic chaos and staying in rhythm as opposed to attempting to track every beat will turn any panicked player into a lightning-fast whirlwind of musical destruction. (Chai told us to call him that.)
CLIMB THE TOWER YOUR WAY
In Power Up! Tower Up!, players face an ascending series of battles similar to Hi-Fi RUSH’s Rhythm Tower mode, unlocked after your first playthrough. This version of the Tower is special, however, as it sapped Chai of all his fancy powers and abilities! Thankfully, with each battle conquered, players can rebuild and power up Chai by choosing random Upgrades for a real comeback story.
Pay close attention to the Bonuses and Bugs offered by certain Upgrades. These unique modifiers offer both boons and challenges that add a special modifier to the next bout on top of their usual stats. Keeping track of Chai’s progress and your chosen Upgrades can offer different strategies for victory, making each run to boost that high score different from the last.
EARN NEW REWARDS AND SWEET, SWEET BRAGGING RIGHTS
The Arcade Challenge! Update! Hi-Fi RUSH also adds new challenges for players looking for more ways to prove they’re the best rocker in the biz. It’s not just clout and earning high scores in the new game modes players can earn (though that feels pretty darn good too) – these new challenges also unlock new content, including new Photo Mode stickers and outfits for Chai and his team to wear.
THERE’S MORE TO DISCOVER (IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO LOOK)
While new game modes and content to earn cover the “arcade” and “challenge” portions of the Arcade Challenge! Update!, that’s not all players to discover. Legend tells of something secret, hidden deep underneath the campus of Vandelay Technologies.
WHEN IN DOUBT, REMEMBER…
Whether you’re climbing for the top speeds of BPM RUSH! or choosing the perfect Power Up! Tower Up! Upgrade to help achieve that juicy S-Rank score, things can heat up considerably in the arena. No matter, if you’ve just moved up from opener status or have already been on a tour or two with Hi-Fi RUSH, the secret to a stellar performance, remains the same: FEEL THAT BEAT.
