Bloodborne’s ‘Easy Mode’

April 6, 2015, Author: Matt Parker

Everyone keeps talking about how hard Bloodborne is and whilst I’ve not played it, my experience with Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 leads me to believe this is the case. The people at From Software clearly get off on seeing people suffer with their games and Bloodborne looks to be no different.

This is why I found it surprising to see reports of an ‘Easy Mode’ being found inside the brutally hard PS4 exclusive. Less surprising to hear was the fact that it’s actually a bug that dumbs down the enemy AI if you leave the game running for too long.

As you can see from the videos, the boss battle goes from tough to tedious pretty quickly.

I know I moaned about the difficulty of Dark Souls 2, but I think fighting an enemy that spams one move would be a diabolical design that even From Software wouldn’t do on purpose. Still looks kind of tricky to beat if you ask me.
