The infamous hardcore mode has been present in Minecraft for quite some time. It is regarded as the most difficult game mode to be added to the game. Twitch streamers such as XqC, have been spotted raging while playing the game mode due to the extreme difficulty it posed. This simply means that the game mode is no joke and must be taken seriously. Many questions have been raised so far about how difficult the mode is and why people are upset about it. The purpose of this article is to explain what hardcore mode is really about.
Hardcore is the most difficult game mode available in Minecraft. It is similar to survival mode, with the exception that the game is locked at the highest difficulty and you only have one life. Yes, you read that correctly: there will be no respawns, which means that if you die, it's game over. If you think the difficulty ends there, you're mistaken, because mobs will deal more damage and hunger will deplete even faster in this game mode.
Aside from the difficulty, some players have mastered the art of hardcore mode. One of them is Ph1LzA, an English streamer who has survived a hardcore world for 5 years straight. People may be wondering how someone could have survived that long. Well, Ph1LzA is one of the most veteran Minecraft players, which means he has a lot of experience playing the game.
But being a seasoned player isn't the only asset he possesses. He is a very dedicated player, and his decision-making throughout the five-year run was exceptional. The end of Ph1LzA's 5-year run has inspired players to start their series and runs in the game. This is hardcore mode, the most difficult game mode in Minecraft.
