No you can pick it from the start, but has to be at the start and if you lower the difficultly later you lose access to the armor sets you can obtain later on Dark.
I'm finding it more than a challenge to be honest, more frustrating having to reload and take multiple attempts at each enemy encounter. As I said I know what lies ahead of me in act one and I'm dreading one beast in particular, who will no doubt one shot kill me, so if I make it to act one on dark and it proves to be as frustrating I'll bump it down to easy just so I can get on and do the alternate story arc in peace and enjoy it
The story and high quality voice acting in this made it a very good experience over all , and it's my #1 game this year so far.
