Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is the latest from Team NINJA and Koei Tecmo. And, while many are leaping head-first into the souls-like fire, others are left wondering if there’s a means to change the difficulty. It certainly wouldn’t be an unhelpful option, especially for those who can’t navigate the world of Wo Long without ripping their hair out. It’s for that reason (and that reason alone) we’re here to help!

In Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, players can take a trip backwards in time to an alternate 184 AD, where they must prevent a demonic infestation of Han Dynasty China. I can tell based on that that prospective players should prepare to employ some serious trial and error. If you’ve just about had it with the tough difficulty of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, read on to learn if you can change the difficulty level, and if so … how.

Can You Change Difficulty in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty?

I’d hate to be the bearer of bad news, but no, you can’t change the difficulty in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. But, it’s not for the reason you might think. It’s not because of some arbitrary reason like the game won’t let you change difficulties mid-game. To be frank, it’s more that there are no difficulties.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty runs on one singular difficulty level. So, you can’t change difficulties because there are no other options to change to. But, that’s not to say you can’t make things a bit easier to deal with. In fact, this game (like other souls-likes) employs a feature that allows other players to invade your game and devastate to their heart’s content.

But, unlike other souls-likes, Wo Long comes with an option to turn these invasions off. To toggle this option, simply navigate to the online settings menu and turn off ‘INVASIONS BY HOSTILE PLAYERS.’ If you turn this option/feature off, you won’t need to stress about griefers ruining your day. Instead, all you’ll need to worry about is Wo Long ruining it with the potentially devastating difficulty level.
