PC modder uberhalit has released a mod for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that offers a bunch of additional graphical options, and even includes various settings that allow you to create your own easy mode, if the game is too harsh for you.

FromSoftware's latest gem Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from both gaming critics and players. However, as you may have noticed in the last few days, some are suggesting that Sekiro is too hard and that the addition of some kind of an easy mode wouldn't hurt. 

Of course, as a true Soulsborne games fan, you would probably say "git gud" to anyone who is complaining about the difficulty. After all, FromSoftware's core game design is built around extremely hard combat. Yet, some would still argue that an option to make the game easier could attract more casual players.

PC modder uberhalit agrees with the premise, apparently. He released a huge mod for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that adds numerous graphical options, and, introduces an easy mode that allows you to slow down the enemies while increasing your own speed.

As seen in the video below, every setting can be adjusted on the fly, without restarting your game which is certainly a welcomed feature. You can use the mod to, for example, slow down an enemy that is causing you a massive headache, and pain, finish him off and continue with your journey in normal speed.

Some may say that this is not what they had in mind when they requested an easy mode for Sekiro, but at the moment, that's the best you can get. If that's not working for you, you can always try the good old "git gud" way.

On a serious note though, uberhalit's mode can certainly help in a lot of frustrating situations, and you can bet that Sekiro is full of them. 

As for the graphical options that are included in the mod, you can lock your frame rate, set any custom resolution you want, increase the field of view and you can even turn on the kill count stats if you're streaming or capturing video using OBS.
