The game just got harder.
The first update for StudioMDHR’s run and gun game Cuphead went live for Xbox One and PC today, two months after the title’s launch in late September.
The update provides fixes for various gameplay issues, including freezes, infinite controller rumble, and minor collision bugs. A couple bosses also receive some tune-ups, while players are no longer able to damage bosses off-screen.
The biggest issue fixed with the update is the “Mugman army” glitch, where it was possible to have over a dozen of the second player’s character on screen at the same time. This worked by selecting the “Remove Player 2” option on the first controller, while pressing Start on the second controller. The glitch worked in both the overworld and the individual stages.
