If you're looking for a chilled-out gameplay experience in Sons of the Forest, then Peaceful Mode might be for you!
Is There Peaceful Mode In Sons Of The Forest?

Are you one of those gamers who enjoy exploring virtual worlds without worrying about hostile creatures? Do you prefer to focus on building and crafting rather than fighting off mutated monsters? If so, you might wonder, "Is there a Peaceful Mode in Sons of the Forest?" Well, we have the answer! Much like its predecessor, The Forest, there are various difficulty modes, each altering multiple aspects of the gameplay to align with players' preferred playstyles. As such, this guide will detail everything about Sons of the Forests' Peaceful Difficulty setting.

What Is Peaceful Mode In Sons of the Forest?

You'll be happy to know that Sons of the Forest does feature Peaceful Mode! But what is it? In simple terms, this difficulty setting is essentially the game's "Easy Mode," allowing players to focus more on the storyline or crafting elements without all the gore and guts players may encounter by engaging with hostile mutant enemies. As a result, Peaceful Mode in Sons of the Forest is the "PG mode" of the game.

At the start of a new game, players can select their preferred difficulty: Normal, Peaceful, Hard, and Custom. Selecting "Peaceful Mode" will remove most mutants from the game. It's worth noting that this setting won't eliminate aggressive animals or other sensitive or triggering graphical elements, such as gory dead bodies, blood, and the like. There are also no enemies hidden in caves, and you will still need to fight bosses in the game.

If you want to customize your gameplay experience in Sons of the Forest, you will need to choose "Custom Mode." This mode allows you to tweak many more elements of the game and will allow you to refine the game to your preferred playstyle, making it either easier or more challenging. That said, it's worth noting that once you have chosen your difficulty setting, you cannot change it later in the game. If you want to switch to a different difficulty, you will need to start a new game.

And that's everything you need to know about if there's a Peaceful Mode in Sons of the Forest!
