Haiku the Robot Obscure Information update

Haiku the Robot just received a pretty major update known as “Obscure Information”.

The update includes two new bosses, a new area , and general improvements across the entire game. Players will go on a journey to a hidden area in Old Arcadia and uncover the ‘Trial of Steel’, which is a challenging Boss Rush Mode that offers a fresh experience with revamped robots. There’s also a practice room where you can sharpen your skills against these newly enhanced machines. 

The full patch notes for the Haiku the Robot “Obscure Information” update are as follows:

Boss rush mode:
  • The ‘Trial of Steel’ features 3 different fight sequences; Mini-Bosses, The Creators, and All Bosses
  • Complete one of the 3 different modes; Underpowered, Haiku, or No Wrench to earn a Badge of Steel (there are 3 different badge tiers; Bronze, Silver, and Gold)
  • Practice individual fights in the Boss test room with the boss rush modifier applied
  • Percentage completion now tallies on top of your current score (maximum +15%)
  • New in-game achievements can be found under the settings menu
