Aeterna Noctis is a 2D side-scrolling action platformer where you control the King of Darkness to battle the forces of Light. Patch v.1.0.006 was released recently that adds the new Aeterna mode.

New Game Modes

Two new game modes are added in the latest update. Aeterna mode is the first one and is recommended for those who want to unravel the story without that much of a hassle. This is because the difficulty has been reduced here, and platforms and puzzles have been redesigned to make it easier for you to progress through the campaign.

If you want a more challenging experience, there is the Noctis mode, which is essentially the game’s current difficulty. You could say that this is the “normal” mode and is great for those who do not mind spending more time completing quests or solving puzzles.

The good thing about these new game modes is that you can switch between them at any time without starting all over again. Furthermore, a skull indicator appears on the HUD to tell you that you’re in Noctis mode.
