The developers of Aragami 2 launched a new patch that introduces the new difficulty modes.

Aragami 2 is a third-person stealth game where players take on the role of an assassin of the Shadow Clan. The main objective is to protect the locals from the invading forces. 

Just recently, the dev team launched the aptly named Difficulty Update for Aragami 2. Now, players can choose between Easy, Normal, and Hard difficulty levels.

Players can set the difficulty of the mission on the Mission Board before they begin. Changing the difficulty can tweak some in-game parameters, including:

  • Time the enemies need to detect the player
  • Distance at which the enemies detect some player actions (e.g. player killing an enemy)
  • Distance at which the enemies detect events in their environment (e.g. corpse on the ground)
  • Enemies’ aggressiveness in combat
  • Player’s strength in combat (only in Easy).
  • Experience obtained at the end of a mission
  • Player’s Ability cooldowns
  • Player’s stamina regeneration rate

The Difficulty Update brings other changes as well. For instance, enemy behavior has been revamped, especially in the last third part of the game. This means that players will come across enemies that are more aware of their surroundings when playing on normal and hard difficulties.

In addition, the max player level has been increased to 48. A new medal counter has been added to the Mission Board, as well as a rune reward for each type if 25 medals are collected.

Patch Notes

NEW
  • Each difficulty setting applies general tweaks to enemies’ awareness, aggressiveness in combat, and reaction time
  • Added Euskera localization to all PC platforms
CHANGE
  • The behavior of Lurker enemies has been redesigned and their placement rate has been increased in all modes besides EASY
  • Fanatic Soldiers now wake up sometime after being knocked out
  • Elite Soldiers are now resistant to most throwing weapons
  • In EASY mode, player Strength is increased
  • The mission Experience reward is adjusted depending on the difficulty level selected

To celebrate the release of this update, the PC and PS4 versions of the game are currently being offered at a 30% discount. The sale will last until the end of the week.

This will be the last major patch for the game as the developers take on new projects. Smaller patches may be launched in the future, but those are for bug fixes and only if they are needed.

Aragami 2 Difficulty Update is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
