What are Difficulty Modes?

The Outer Worlds, like any other game, has a set of Difficulty Modes that you can play. Each of these cater to the player's level in some way.

For instance, if you'd like to know more about the Story, there's a difficulty mode for that. The same goes for the Normal mode of the game, as well as the harder settings.

The Outer Worlds Difficulty Modes

There are three different difficulties for your level of play. They are explained below:
