Before I try Hardcore...

8 posts in this topic

So I rented this game years ago, and didn't want to bother with Hardcore...wanted to get the next game from Gamefly. I did everything else, but it looks like I've lost my save file. I'm looking at buying the Ultimate Edition on PSN before the store closes. I plan to use the DLC equipment to make it easier, but would like some recommendations from others that have done it. If I have the DLC equipment, is the Ignition bonus still worth it? It's only 5 bucks for another game, so I'm leaning towards getting it and playing it first. I could get the DS2 Limited Edition disc, then buy the season pass. Is Extraction worth the extra cost? I'm leaning towards no on that since it looks to be Move control based. Just wanted some input before buying everything.

 

I'll probably play through the game again on normal just to refresh the story and spawns, but is Hardcore available right away or do you have to beat the game first? Also, is the Severed DLC available right away or is it better after the story?

I'd definitely suggest getting every advantage possible before going for hardcore. Because it will make or brake your sanity and that's without it glitching lol I had no glitches but definitely died alot and only got through on luck and prayers lol my girlfriend on the other hand hit afew glitches her insanity inducing moment was making it to an elevator doing really great next to her final save and home run and she fell through the elevator floor..... Lol

Yeah 

I'd recommend you are aware of every room a boss will appear and all the instant death scenarios(such as the tormentor) and all the times those fucking little shits pop out, so you can prepare yourself accordingly even if you are doing a nodes glitched run.

Is Zealot available out of the gate?...or HC, I lost my save and will be starting from scratch even though I have all the other trophies. Either way, sounds like I'll want every advantage so I'll get Ignition and do that first.

You can play zealot from the start, no playthrough required to unlock. Hard-core requires a playthrough.
