PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne: Users Discover a Way to Adjust In-Game Difficulty Using Insight

Bloodborne can be very hard or easy for you depending on how you try to play it. Since the game has no difficulty option like most other games, everyone plays at the same difficulty level. However, you might not know about it but this difficulty can be adjusted by the players in-game.

As discovered by some players, the difficulty of the game depends on how many Insight you currently have in-game. The threshold for difficulty increase is >15 Insight. So if you have >15 Insight and are having difficulty with the game, you should try lowering it as it can make the game much easier.


According to reports, if we have a a higher amount of Insight, the enemies can actually get more aggressive, gain new weapons and attacks and they can start spawning more frequently. So if you are getting your ass handed to you by the difficulty, playing with a lower Insight might be good idea.

A detailed post over at reddit also confirms that Insight can indeed affect difficulty of the game.

With 14 and 27 insight there was a noticeable difference in the two monsters i tested in Cathedral Ward.

Lantern guy gained eyeballs on his lantern and he now casts a ranged Spell.

Sycthe guy gains an enchantment on his Scythe that burns you.

Bloodborne was released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 by From Software in collaboration with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan. It is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of Demon and Dark Souls.
