New Outlast 2 Patch Changes Normal Mode Difficulty

A new patch has hit Outlast 2 which should make the gameplay a little easier for those enduring the horrors on normal difficulty mode.

While the harder difficulty modes are still available for those looking for a challenge, those hoping for a bit of slack while on normal mode have had their prayers answered to. Going forth, players on normal mode will now have their camera battery life last longer than it did before the patch.

To make things a little easier, the Outlast developers also made sure that using the microphone feature on the camera, which can be used to hear through walls, will no longer drain the camera battery either. Currently, the night vision feature on the camera still does drain the camera battery, so you'll still need to be conservative with the camera's features, but it no longer drains as fast as it did before, especially on normal mode.

For those wanting to know more about the latest patch, make sure to read the excerpt straight from the Outlast 2 development team's press release for this patch below:

"While the launch of Outlast 2 has been a commercial success we have kept a close eye on the feedback from countless community members, let's players, and reviews.

"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."
