Tales of Arise has just received a bit of an update — but you won't have to download any kind of patch. Instead, you'll need to head over to the PlayStation Store and grab the free 'Additional Difficulty Pack'. If you can't find it by searching, you can always go to the game's main product page, and it should be listed there.
Once you've claimed it, you'll find the pack under the DLC tab in-game.
The DLC adds two new difficulty settings: Very Easy and Unknown. The former is exactly what it sounds like — a really easy option that greatly lessens combat difficulty so that players can just focus on the story. Meanwhile, Unknown is set up to be the game's hardest challenge.
There are already several difficulty levels in Tales of Arise: Story, Normal, Moderate, Hard, and Chaos. But even on Story, combat can be tricky if you're not used to action-based battle systems. The new Very Easy setting should allow even more people to enjoy the game, while Unknown gives experts a real run for their money.
This DLC launches alongside the recently announced Sword Art Online Collaboration Pack, which adds a tough new arena fight, outfits, weapons, and a new Mystic Arte. You'll have to pay for this one, however. It's priced at £12.99 / $15.99
