How to Change Difficulty in South Park: The Fractured But Whole
South Park: The Fractured but Whole takes an um, interesting approach to their difficulty setting. There are two difficulty settings. The first is your combat difficulty which is set based on your personal preference on how hard you want combat to be. The second is, well, determined by your skin color. The game states tells you not to worry about that though because your skin color won’t affect difficulty in combat, just every other aspect of your life. In other words, it impacts how people talk to you and how much money you receive.
You set that at the beginning of the game, but you can change it later on in the game. The combat difficulty can be changed at any time by pressing Options/Start. From there, select combat difficulty and decide whether you want to play on Casual, Heroic, or Mastermind. Heroic is your default “normal” setting.
Your skin color you set at the beginning, but that can’t be changed until a little later. Go meet PC Principal at Crunchy’s Micro Brew.
