Following an update earlier this summer which added a New Game+ mode, mini-game challenges, and online leaderboards, a new Blood & Truth update today adds a Hard Mode, a handful of new shooting challenges, and some new trophies for completionists to chase.

Blood & Truth, easily one of PSVR’s top games in 2019 (our review here), gets a free update today which will give players reason to dive back in to London’s underground. London Studio detailed the update over at the official PlayStation Blog.

In addition to shooting challenges that were previously added to the game post-launch, this update adds five new skeet shooting challenges that will test your ability to shoot clay pigeons out of the air with your trusty shotgun.

  1. Authentic Skeet
    In our Authentic Skeet experience, you move between eight stations shooting at high and low clays launched as singles or doubles. 25 is a perfect score but we’ll be timing you to sort the hotshots from the wannabes.
  2. Extreme Skeet
    Move between eight stations on London’s rooftops, shooting high and low clay launches as singles and doubles. Look out for additional targets between stations for extra points.
  3. Endurance Skeet
    Here, clays are launched from high towers. Lose a life for every clay you miss. You have three lives but can earn a lost life back with three consecutive hits. Hit as many clays as you can before you run out of lives.
  4. Puzzle Skeet
    Hit three targets to release a colored clay. Lights switch on with each hit target tell you which color clay you need to shoot next. Hit the Clay to move on to the next set of targets, miss and you need to hit the three targets again to relaunch the clay.
  5. Action Skeet
    This is our training challenge, which includes static and launched targets. You can polish your skills in here.

There’s also a hidden gnome in each of the modes which will earn you a new trophy when you find all five.

The update also brings Hard Mode to Blood & Truth, and players can choose to play individual missions in Hard Mode or start a full Hard Mode playthrough with New Game+ (which allows players to use their unlocked arsenal from a previous playthrough at the start of a new campaign). A new trophy is awaiting those who tackle the whole campaign in Hard Mode.

Hard Mode is pretty much what it sounds like… London Studio says that enemies are more accurate while the player has less health which is also slower to recover. The game’s ‘Precision Mode’ slow-mo feature is also reduced in Hard Mode, but painted as an invaluable tool because enemies will be less accurate if you use it while moving.

To tackle Hard Mode, the studio reminds players they can use silencers on their weapons to take out enemies quietly, use their off-hand to steady the weapon’s recoil (even on pistols), and equip scopes and laser sights to be more accurate.

The game’s online rankings are also getting a separate Hard Mode leaderboard for those who want to vie for the top score.
