Hardcore Ironman Mode
One life. One goal.
Hardcore Ironman works in the exact same way as a standard Ironman account, simply with the added challenge of only one life. Your one life will only be claimed by a dangerous death. Safe deaths, such as those in many minigames, will not cause you to lose your Hardcore status.
There are no second chances as a Hardcore Ironman. If you fall into the clutches of death, you will be stripped of your Hardcore status and your stats will be frozen on the Hardcore Ironman hiscores.
Following next week's game update on Thursday November 10th, you'll be able to talk to Juan as you exit Tutorial Island to start your journey as a Hardcore Ironman.
