Dark Souls 2 Will Be Harder Than the Beta
If you thought the closed Beta for Dark Souls II was too easy, you're in for a treat. The actually game will be harder. According to Darks Souls II producer, Takeshi Miyazoe, in a recent article from Edge Magazine, player data from the beta proved the game's initial set-up was not challenging enough. The final product's difficulty will thus be increased. But how much harder will they make it? This is something that From is still debating, but the generally sense is that the final game's difficulty will be closer to the "Hard Difficulty" mode initialized towards the end of the second NA beta test.
I for one am excited by this news. I played both sessions of the NA beta, and I definitely thought the Hard mode made the game more thrilling.
What do you think? Should From make the beta harder or was it hard enough before the difficulty was raised?
