How To Change Difficulty In Remnant 2?

Follow these steps to change the difficulty in Remnant 2:

  1. Interact with the World Stone at Ward 13.
  2. Select the bottom option "World Settings".
  3. In the next screen, you will see an option on the left called "Reroll Campaign". When you Reroll the campaign you will get to play on a new difficulty. But doing this effectively means starting a new game, as when you "Reroll" you lose all campaign progress (however, you do keep any items or weapons you've discovered). If you are prepared to start a new game so that you access a different difficulty, select "Reroll Campaign".
  4. From the "Reroll Campaign" menu you will now be able to choose the difficulty you want to play a new campaign on.
  5. If you're absolute sure starting the campaign again is worth it to play on an easier or harder difficulty, confirm Reroll.

That was a guide for you on how to change difficulty in Remnant 2, but one question remains: should you?
