It’s not every day we see a Square Enix title with system requirements that cause players to raise eyebrows for concerns the game might not run smoothly on their PC. Well, say hello to Forspoken, the long-awaited sci-fi adventure game starring Ella Balinska. The game has finally launched, and with it, you’ll need a hefty rig to run it.
Although the game’s reviews have been positive, Square Enix’s 2023 hit isn’t without its problems, which for many includes its aforementioned ridiculous system requirements for PC. However, if you do have a powerful PC, or you’re playing on PS5, then here’s the best difficulty to choose in Forspoken.
Best Difficulty To Choose in Forspoken – Difficulty Settings Explained
Like some new and old titles, Forspoken doesn’t really have any difficulty trophies that’ll make you want to play the game on a higher difficulty. And choosing your difficulty in the game is the first choice you’ll make as you embark on this journey.
The game doesn’t have the typical Easy, Normal or Hard difficulty modes that you can choose from, making things a bit complicated for novice gamers. Instead, the options available for you to choose from are Focus on the Story (Easy), Explore the Open World (Normal), and Take Part in the Challenging Battles (Hard).
Below we’ve outlined the difficulty options in Forspoken to give you a better understanding of how they work:
- Focus on the Story – This is recommended for players who want a seamless experience and enjoy watching the game’s story unfold.
- Explore the Open World – This is recommended for players who want to explore every corner of the game’s world.
- Take Part in Challenging Battles – This is recommended for players who are no strangers to action games and want to be challenged.
- Default – This last option is recommended for players who would like a combination of all the difficulty modes, almost like a balance of all gameplay elements.
However, don’t spend too much time trying to make a choice. Regardless of the one you choose at the start of the game, you can go to the settings at any point and change the difficulty once again.
Forspoken is available now for PlayStation 5 and PC.
