Shadow of the Tomb Raider Will Let You Change the Difficulty of Puzzles, Combat and Traversal

Dean Abdou

Eidos Montreal has revealed in a recent blog post that players will have the option to tweak the difficulty of puzzles, combat and traversal in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Within the options menu, players will be able to change the difficulty to either Easy, Normal, or Hard when playing through Shadow of the Tomb Raider. There is even a fourth option dubbed 'Deadly Obsession' for those of you feeling like an absolute mad bastard, ramping up the difficulty of all three categories.

Setting Combat to easy will make it simpler for players to get ammo and fight enemies whereas Traversal on easy will light up camps highlighting to the player where they need to head. You can just set Puzzles to hard if you like, and have Traversal on easy. It's completely up to how you want to play the game.

You can check out the full blog post here to learn all of the ins and outs regarding the game's adjustable difficulty settings. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 14th September.

  • No good if they're tied up with trophies anyway. As a trophy hunter website, we're all gonna have to do the hard difficulty if they are required to do to earn the platinum. Deadly Obsession? Sounds like copying a "Crushing" from Uncharted - this is coming from someone who always says Uncharted copied Tomb Raider... well lookie what we have here. LOL
  • @1 Let's hope there aren't any difficulty-related achievements. I like the option of being able to make things a little easier if there's a sudden spike in difficulty. I think I'd still be fighting the Valkyrie Queen in God of War today if I hadn't been able to turn the difficulty down without losing out on trophies.
  • @1 I would put money on there being a trophy for completing the game in Deadly Obsession mode. Hopefully there is no Mein Leben mode in this one haha.
