I'll be surprised if they can balance that out. You can't really make the game easy for new players and hard for veteran ones at the same time.
Difficulty slider in the game options? They've had that for many games, which can make combat more difficult by giving enemies unfair advantages or more sophisticated AI. Combat is probably the part of the game that is easiest to adjust the challenge level of, by just making enemies tougher, smarter and more dangerous.
