Hi-Fi Rush Launches Arcade Challenge Update Featuring 2 New Game Modes; Update 5 Patch Notes Revealed

Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have announced that their rhythm action game, HiFi Rush, has received its fifth major update.

Fans can look forward to two new game modes. The first is BPM Rush, a turbo mode that provides a faster beat the more enemies you defeat, going up to a maximum of 200 BPM. The other mode is Power Up! Tower Up! Chai becomes heavily downgraded in this locale, and you need to power him up as you progress up a tower.

Moreover, fans can anticipate new enemies, accessories, 808 Looks, photo mode poses, and photo mode filters. There will also be new special attacks with CNMN and Smidge.

Additionally, official patch notes were shared, quoted below:


  • Adjusted the menu in the Training Room to avoid accidentally returning to the Hideout. Now, returning to the Hideout requires you to hold the cancel button while in the Training Room menu.
  • (Track 06) Fixed an issue where a successful Rhythm Parry against Korsica would result in a game crash
  • (Track 09) Addressed an issue where the FPS would lock at 60FPS for the remainder of the Mimosa fight following the guitar-playing musical interlude section.
  • (Track 10) Fixes an issue where the player could still control Chai at the end event of Roquefort’s second phase and potentially fall out of the arena as Phase 3 of the fight begins.
  • (Track 12) Fixed a rare issue where a successful Rhythm Parry against Kale’s Phase 1 end sequence would result in a game crash
  • Addressed a collision issue with the “Holo-Chai” Special Attack that could prevent player progress when the decoy is deployed out of bounds during combat. It seems that even a hologram of Chai is still capable of screwing things up…
  • Fixed an issue where Partner Assists could become locked in “aiming mode” when pressing Alt+Tab during gameplay
  • Added support for scrolling with the mouse wheel when reading Vlogs for a smooth and refreshing Vlog reading experience.


  • SPECTRA room hubs now feature a collectable checklist!
  • Additional whiteboard markers have been allocated to CNMN’s personal stash.

In case you missed it, you can check out the announcement trailer for the Hi-Fi Rush Arcade Challenge update below:

The protagonist of Hi-Fi Rish is named Chai, a victim of a corporate experience that allows him to sense the world’s rhythm. Enemy attacks, cutscenes, and all the action keep the rhythm going. The endearing partner 808 helps keep the timing like a metronome. Other heroes join Chai to add to the combat’s systems and create lengthy and flashy maneuvers.

Hi-Fi Rush is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, and PC via Steam.
