What Difficulty Should You Play Immortals Fenyx Rising On?

Like most games, when starting Immortals Fenyx Rising for the first time you’ll be presented with a difficulty select option. And so, you might be left wondering which one you should choose.

At the outset, there are four difficulty options to choose from in Immortals Fenyx Rising, with a fifth unlockable by completing the game on any other difficulty setting. The difficulties available from the outset are Story, Easy, Normal, and Hard.

Story difficulty is for those who want to breeze through the game, enjoying the story first and foremost. Those playing on Story difficulty will face enemies at their weakest, and find that their health can fully regenerate outside of combat. They’ll also find that they don’t suffer damage from falls, and will be assisted when taking on the game’s many puzzles. Basically it makes Immortals Fenyx Rising a very easy-going affair. You can go wherever you want and do whatever you want without too much trouble.

The next-step up is easy, which is suitable for players who don’t want to be overly challenged but don’t want the game to be a walk in the park, either. On Easy, enemies are weaker than they are on Normal, but stronger than they are on Story. Also, outside of combat, only one chunk of health will be regenerated. On top of that, players will take fall damage, though it is halved, and there’s less assistance when it comes to puzzles. On the whole, Easy difficulty is great for those who are new to the genre.

Normal difficulty proves to be a decent challenge in Immortals Fenyx Rising, especially at the start of the game. On Normal, there’s no puzzle assistance, and enemies are at their default strength. If you fall from a great height, you’ll take a decent amount of damage, and outside of combat, only one chunk of health is regenerated. Most players should start on this difficulty and see how they go, as it’s what the game was designed around.

For those who want a bit more of a challenge, Hard difficulty is an option. Enemies are a bit tougher on Hard difficulty, and while fall damage is kept the same, those who run out of stamina while gliding will find themselves plummeting down to earth instead of slowly falling like on previous difficulties. Other than that though, everything is same as on Normal.

Nightmare is the hardest difficulty, unlocked by completing the game on any other difficulty first. Enemies are at their deadliest on Nightmare, and no health is regenerated outside of combat. Other than that, settings are the same as on hard.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the difficulty can be changed at any time by simply going into the options menu. The game will need to be reloaded when changing the difficulty, however, so make sure you save your progress first. A range of puzzle helpers can also be toggled on and off in the options regardless of the difficulty chosen, so if you get stuck, have a play with them. And finally, there are no difficulty-related achievements or trophies in Immortals Fenyx Rising, so simply choose the difficulty that gives you the best playing experience.
