Metroid Dread, Adds Rookie And Dread Difficulty Modes, Boss Rush Mode Coming In April
A free update for Metroid Dread has been released, which includes two new difficulty settings. Playing the game on "Dread Mode" will undoubtedly be difficult, since even a single enemy hit will result in a game over. The addition of "Rookie Mode" will be beneficial to new Metroid series players, since it will allow for faster recuperation. In April 2022, a second free update for Metroid Dread will be published, which will contain a Boss Rush mode.
