Way of the Passive Fist gets “New Dawn” update

Household games brought this amazing game as their debut to the market with their Way of the Passive Fist. The game, being launched only a while ago, received a huge update called “New Dawn”.

To understand the update though, for gamers who were unaware of this title, start off by checking out its initial launch trailer

In Way of the Passive Fist: New Dawn, a side-scrolling action arcade brawler, players take on the role of the mysterious Wanderer and master a rare defensive fighting style to outlast enemies. While utilizing parries, deflections, dashes, and dodges, the Wanderer’s foes exhaust themselves to the point that they can then be defeated and knocked out by a single finger punch.
