HOW TO CHANGE DIFFICULTY IN GOD OF WAR
Sony Santa Monica’s God of War franchise has been known to be quite simple when it comes to its hack-and-slash gameplay, unless you messed with the difficulty options and increased the combat level. In this new God of War, not only do you have access to a variety of difficulty options, but you can alter it anytime during the game, just in case you decided to change your mind midway through. To change difficulty in the game, all you have to do is open up the menu with the Options button, choose Settings, choose Gameplay, then you can switch the difficulty.
The four options that you’ll have access to are as follows: Give Me a Story, Give Me a Balanced Experience, Give Me a Challenge, and the highest difficulty, Give Me God of War (which is only available when you start a new game). When playing on Give Me God of War, you won’t be able to change difficulty halfway through the game – you pick it, you’re stuck with it. You’ll be able to change the other ones at your leisure at any point during the game’s epic story.
