The game offers four difficulty levels:
- Survivor: This is the fundamental gaming experience intended for most players. It’s a challenging but fair level that’s been carefully balanced to test but not overwhelm players.
- Veteran: This level is a bit harder. Here, enemies are more dangerous but not excessively resilient. This difficulty is a great choice for players looking for a more demanding experience right off the bat.
- Nightmare: This level is seriously hard, filled with bosses who are incredibly tough. While it’s not recommended as a starting difficulty, it’s available for players who are ready for a significant challenge.
- Apocalypse: This is the final test of everything you’ve learned and acquired throughout the game. This level is meant for strategic builds and precise gameplay, and it features incredibly strong and lethal bosses. Apocalypse is unlocked after completing the game on any other difficulty level.
The difficulty you choose should reflect what suits you best, not what other players are choosing. If you’re feeling ready for a harder challenge, you can reroll the campaign or embark on a new adventure at a higher difficulty whenever you want.Lastly, there’s an option to start the game in Hardcore Mode

No worries. Here’s
Founder Ford (an infamous NPC from the series) giving you a quick lowdown on all there is to know.And here’s a quick summary of what Ford said in the video.
A few decades ago, an unimaginable evil known as ‘the root’ infiltrated our world, leading to our greatest triumph and our ultimate downfall. This evil came from a door that was opened to worlds beyond our comprehension, destroying everything in its wake. Although we dealt a heavy blow to the root, buying ourselves some time, the situation remains dire. We rebuilt as best we could, licked our wounds, and forged a path forward, but time is running out. Everything is prey to the root, and as long as they exist, we will always be hunted.Now, we need you to journey to dangerous but wondrous worlds to stop the root once and for all. To survive, you’ll need to push your skills to the limit. However, mere survival is not enough. We need you to prevail. Make use of whatever gear you can find, modify your weapons with whatever you can salvage during your travels, and think strategically about the backup you need. We are counting on you to halt this infestation before it extinguishes the last glimmer of humanity.If you fail, the consequences will be unthinkable. Therefore, failure is not an option. Our future is in your hands. Without you, everything we know and love will fall to ash.
