Here is a summary of the differences between each of the difficulty levels are.Peaceful:
Hostile mobs do not spawn naturally, except for a select few that do not deal damage to a player. When being on a higher difficulty and changing to Peaceful, all hostile mobs are automatically despawned. Additionally, player health is restored much quicker on this difficulty.Easy:
Hostile mobs do spawn on this difficulty, however, they do little damage compared to Normal level. Player health does not decrease when they are starving.Normal:
The default value, hostile mobs deal normal damage and a player's health will decrease by 1 heart when they are starving. Additionally, villagers have a 1/2 chance of becoming a zombie when they are killed by one.Hard:
Hostile mobs cause more damage than Normal and players can starve to death. Villages will become zombies when they are killed by one and zombies can break through doors.
