How to Change the Difficulty
While the normal difficulty is doable, any higher and most of the enemies you’ll face will be a real challenge. If you’re in the mood for a swashbuckling adventure more like Star Wars games of the past, then try out Story Mode, which lowers the incoming damage of enemy attacks, makes them less aggressive, and removes fall damage from the picture completely.
You can change the difficulty at any time from the pause menu – and that means any time. There isn’t a penalty; which effectively gives you the ability to “skip” sections you’re having trouble with by lowering the difficulty then boosting it back up.
