If you love Metroidvania games, in Aeterna Noctis there is a perfect game mode for you, the Aeterna mode. However, if extreme challenges and platforming are what you want, you are a Noctis mode player. Let’s jump in and explore the differences between these game modes.
Aeterna Mode: A Pure Metroidvania Experience
In essence, the game has been completely redesigned to offer you as a player a 100% metroidvania experience where action and exploration are the protagonists. If it’s one of your favourite genres, don’t miss the opportunity to get lost in a huge open world with 16 unique areas and hundreds of enemies with unique mechanics. The challenge lies in recovering your power and facing fearsome final bosses that will demand the most of you.
Noctis Mode – Platforms and Extreme Challenges
We could say that for the first time two genres such as metroidvania and platform games have been mixed. Playing in this mode, you will not only have to explore and recover your powers, but you will also face constant puzzles, platform sections and challenges only recommended for the most demanding players. If you think this is not for you, we do not recommend playing on Noctis mode since frustration can ruin the experience. This mode includes all the achievements, so it is also ideal for completionist players or for those who, after beating Aeterna mode, want to enjoy the title again with more difficulty.
Some Examples of Aeterna Mode vs Noctis Mode
In Aeterna mode, the spikes have been removed from the platforms to make it easier to fight the enemy. This way you can slide and lean on the platforms without worrying about environmental hazards. In Aeterna mode, the chainsaw puzzle is replaced by an enemy encounter. This way the gaming experience is more focused on exploration and action, moving away from more challenging puzzles.
Can You Switch between Modes?
The player can switch between one mode or the other at any time without losing progress and reloading the game at the last save point, allowing the Aeterna Noctis experience to be shaped at your will. That gives you more ways to have a great experience playing Aeterna Noctis, so give it a try today and enjoy the adventure!
