Are you man enough? Are ya?! Do you have balls of steel? Then Alien Isolation’s newest update should please you, as it added a harder mode to the game. There is also an easier mode in there as well, if that’s your thing.
In all seriousness, there were a few comments about even the game’s easy mode being challenging, so it’s more than reasonable to add an easier mode into the mix. What it basically does, is make the Alien less aggressive when pursuing you, and it’s also easier to distract with flares and what not.
As well as this, it will also add more crafting materials and makes the human and synthetic enemies easier to take on.
For the brave among you, though, Nightmare mode heightens the Alien’s senses even more, and Sega went on to say, “learning from your tactics with chilling speed and with intensified senses that will give you no second chances.”
As with the Novice mode, it makes a change to the human and synthetic enemies and makes them more clinical when attacking. That not enough for you? Well, too bad if it is, because your motion tracker is also broken and unreliable and the map screen is inaccessible.
So, do you dare?
