George R. R. Martin and FromSoftware’s much-anticipated action-RPG collaboration is finally here, and players and critics alike are having a thrilling time taking down hulking bosses and grotesque beasties while getting lost in the more open environments that the Lands Between offers. But what if you’re stuck on a particularly nasty boss and really wanted to dial down the difficulty? In this guide, we’ll explain whether or not you can change the difficulty setting in Elden Ring. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
Can You Change the Difficulty in Elden Ring? Answered
No, you can’t change the difficulty in Elden Ring. We’re sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but much like all the Soulsborne predecessors before it (except for Dark Souls 2, which had a fairly laborious way of switching on a slightly easier mode), there are no options to change the difficulty in Elden Ring.
In other words, there is only one difficulty, which is the default setting, and there is no way of changing this. Indeed, in typical Soulsborne fashion, you’ll have to try your best to soldier your way through the punishingly difficult experience without the option of turning down the difficulty.
Thankfully, you do always have access to our dedicated Elden Ring guide wiki which is full to the brim with useful strategies, tips, and tricks that’ll help make your life easier as you venture into the dark and brutal world of the Lands Between.
But that’s about everything you need to know about whether or not you can change the difficulty in Elden Ring. For more tips, tricks, and guides, search for Twinfinite.
