Fix Change Difficulty Not Working in God Of War Ragnarok

We have and will face different types of bosses during the game. And to deal with that while enjoying the game side-by-side, we might want to change the difficulty from time to time. However, a bug that caught our attention is that players are not able to change the difficulty level.

As seen, whenever they lowered the difficulty level, the settings were not saved. No matter how many times you save the settings, the glitch just resets the difficulty.

However, we have come up with something that you might want to try to fix to change the difficulty of the not working bug.

Firstly, try reloading from the last checkpoint. Then head to the settings and try changing the difficulty once again.

Secondly, try changing the difficulty and then save the settings with the touchpad. This should work by now.

Thirdly, if the previous one didn’t work out, try saving the settings after changing the difficulty level by pushing the left side of the touchpad along with the X button simultaneously.

Things should work pretty fine by now. And if there is still no hope, I suggest waiting for a patch or starting a new game entirely.

And these are the ways you can give it a go to fix the Change Difficulty Not Working Bug in God of War Ragnarok. Prosst!
