After a long time in development, Tunic finally arrived on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC this week. With it came significant critical acclaim. However, while Tunic is a undoubtedly a great game, it can be a bit challenging. Dig a bit deeper however, and there are two options for a Tunic easy mode.
Despite the cutesy looks of the game, Tunic has some punishing combat. Players will need to learn pixel-perfect dodges and blocking to fell some of even the most basic enemies. And let’s not even mention the hugely overpowered bosses. As well as the obvious comparison to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Tunic has even been compared to the Souls series, including Elden Ring. Yes, it’s that tough.
But fear not! For those of you here for the adventuring rather than the punishment, or who want to entice younger players to enjoy the puzzling and exploration, Tunic does in fact include difficulty options. It’s not a case of simply selecting ‘easy’ on the menu, however. Tunic is designed to be played a specific way, but it also makes concessions for those who simply can’t play it that way. And that’s where the Tunic easy mode comes in.
Tunic Easy Mode Settings
While there’s no specific difficulty settings on Tunic‘s main menu, you can find a couple of helpful options within the game’s ‘accessibility’ menu. There are two: one which gives you infinite stamina, and one which enables ‘no fail mode’.
Turning on infinite stamina makes Tunic‘s combat a little easier, as it means you can dodge out of the way infinitely without getting tired. While normally you’d only be able to roll a few times before your stamina is depleted, leaving you open for attack, now there are no such limitations. This brings the difficulty down a touch without making the game too easy.
Tunic’s no fail mode on the other hand, is exactly what it sounds like. You become invincible. With this turned on, you won’t die. This is truly a Tunic easy mode.
To enable this options, follow the simple steps below:
- Pause the game.
- Select Options.
- Select Accessibility.
- Toggle On/Off No Fail Mode or No Stamina Stamina Restrictions.
And there you have it! Tunic easy mode available for all. Whether you’re looking for a slightly easier adventure or are not interested in the combat at all, Tunic has the options you need. They’re just not where you might expect!
