    Metroid Dread Patch 2.1.0 Notes – Official

    New Modes Added

    Three different boss rush modes have been added to the game. Press the R Button on the “Samus Files” screen to move to the Boss Rush selection screen.

    Boss Rush

      • A mode where players fight 12 continuous boss battles, and aim for the best time.
      • Any damage received is carried-over into the next fight. Weapons are fully-restored between battles.
      • If Samus is defeated, players may select “Retry” to continue playing from the start of the battle they lost. There is, however, a time penalty for being defeated.
      • Bosses fought in Boss Rush can be fought one-on-one at any time by selecting “Practice”.

    Survival Rush

      • A mode where players see how many bosses they can defeat inside of the 5 minute time limit.
      • Any damage received, or weapons spent are carried-over into the next battle. Even if time remains on the clock, Samus being defeated will result in a game over.
      • Defeating a boss will add a fixed amount of time to the countdown clock. Defeat a boss without receiving any damage to receive an even bigger time bonus.

    Dread Rush

      • The basic rules are the same as in Boss Rush, but if Samus is hit by a boss, her energy drops to zero and she is defeated.
      • Bosses fought in Dread Rush can be fought one-on-one at any time by selecting “Practice”.

    General Fixes

    • Fixed an error where the Game Over screen would not display properly when Samus takes damage and is defeated immediately after destroying a central unit.
