Stellar Blade adds Boss Challenge mode in new update

Stellar Blade

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer SHIFT UP have announced they’re adding a free update for Stellar Blade this month.

The new free update for the game is coming on May 24th and will add a new Boss Challenge mode alongside new costumes and quality of life updates.

Here’s a rundown on the new details:

Boss Challenge

The Boss Challenge pits you against the 19 bosses from the base game. Hone your skills, outwit your enemies… and brutalize them.

Progression in the Boss Challenge requires battle data from bosses you’ve previously defeated. You can also fight bosses on Hard difficulty setting after you’ve seen the ending of the game.

To start the challenge, you can either load up and use your own gear you’ve been using or choose one of several presets. Choose the minimum preset for a true challenge, which is extremely understated, or the maximum preset, which has all of your skills and stats buffed up, if you want to taunt the boss with some spectacular combat.

After the challenge is over, your battle data is automatically analyzed. You’ll see metrics like battle time, number of perfect parries and dodges, consumable usage, and more. Test your skills and compare with your friends.

If you defeat all bosses in the Boss Challenge on Normal difficulty setting or higher, you’ll get to earn the Neurolink Suit for Eve. Hats off to your strength!

New Nano Suits added

Blood, blade… and beauty. Eve can be summarized in these three words. New Nano Suits have been added to bring out her beauty even more.

The two Nano Suits above, White Kunoichi and Black Kunoichi, will be available in this new update.

And check out the game yourself for more Nano Suits.

Quality-of-life improvements

If you switch to ranged attack mode and switch back while locked on to an enemy, you will automatically lock on to the enemy again.

Also, we’re adding an option to always show the compass in the HUD.

Stellar Blade is available now for the PS5. Check out our review for the game!
