Outlast 2: Newest Patch Fixes Difficulty Issues

Outlast 2, a game that inspires terror in any player’s heart, is getting a tweaking. This is due to gamers uniformly complaining across the board about how the game seemed to get more difficult than necessary during certain moments of the story. That said, the developers over at Red Barrels have attempted to address this issue.

The developers have released the patch notes on Steam, outlining that while Outlast 2 has been a commercial success all around that they have been paying attention to feedback from gamers everywhere. With the players issues in mind, they stated that “Today’s patch introduces some minor adjustments to the game’s difficulty in key areas and moments…On Normal difficulty this will offer players a more appropriately balanced experience while still maintaining higher levels of challenge on Hard and Nightmare difficulties”. Admittedly the patch notes don’t tell you ‘how’ your encounters were tweaked, but rather just states that it was a “global rebalancing of the game difficulty”.

One nifty thing to take note of, for those who actually like the game, is that the in game camera’s microphone ability no longer wastes batteries. As many know, the microphone is a key feature in Outlast 2, and allows all players to figure out what direction enemies are in and how close they are. The lack of a drain on your battery life really allows players to enjoy this ability more, as more often than not people would conserve battery life as oppose to using it.

Other small fixes were made to bugs that were found throughout the game, and are highlighted in the patch notes – most notably fixing the loss of saved games.
