Just wondering. I just can't get past the church basement and the last save I have for the regular game is on nightmare, so I'm wondering if I'm playing the DLC on that difficulty or if you can or cannot change it.

I believe my last playthrough was on Nightmare as well and I felt like the DLC played as if it were on normal mode. In the basement, I found it not too hard if I ran around that first corner and took a sharp right to trigger the first wave of guys. Then I backed up towards the entrance stairs, lighting up the blast furnaces as I went (those things killed EVERYTHING!). Then I walked out and towards the left to trigger a second set of guys. I still had a ton of furnaces left and repeated that. I think that was it. I only had to fire a few shots total.

Hope you can get through it!

My last save was on Nightmare as well, but when I started up the DLC from the episodes menu, it prompted me to choose a difficulty setting again.

Finished my first playthrough on main game, on Hard. When I started the DLC, I wasn't prompted for a difficulty level. So I assumed it started on Hard.

It defaults to normal unless you go through episode select.
It's not the poop. It's the mystery... behind the poop.

Mine did not prompt but it definately felt like Normal. Faster, weaker enemies took one shot instead of two like they did on my Hard playthrough.
