Will The Witcher 3 Be The Hardest Game This Year?
Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2: Scholar Of The First Sin might have seemed like shoo-ins for the title of 2015’s Hardest Game, but there’s a new contender – The Witcher 3’s hardest difficulty sounds brutal.
Titled Dark Mode, this setting will greatly ramp up the challenge but it’s mostly going to be made tricky by the fact that it adds permadeath. Fall in battle and there’s no reloading from the last checkpoint – you have to start the game again from the beginning. Ouch.
Couple this with the fact that The Witcher 3 is going to be absolutely huge (like, multiple Skyrims huge) and you’re looking at a challenge that only the masochistic will look to take on. But then again, in an era where punishing games like Dark Souls are so popular, maybe that’s what people want? You kids are crazy…
