Guerrilla Games rolled out rolled out patch 1.30 last month for Horizon Zero Dawn that brought “Ultra Hard” difficulty and now the devs have introduced new “Story” difficulty with patch 1.32. This difficulty level is for those who like to immerse themselves in the story and exploration without having to worry about the combat.
The most noticeable changes in the “Story” difficulty for Horizon Zero Dawn include the damage dealt by players has been significantly boosted and the damage players receive has been reduced. This makes the combat encounters “manageable for less experienced players. It is our hope that the new difficulty setting will help us welcome more players onto Aloy’s quest to discover her identity and the mysteries of the world she inhabits.”
Aside from this low difficulty level, patch 1.32 for Horizon Zero Dawn also brings some fixes which are outlined in the patch notes.
