Fairly straightforward, this requires you to beat the game on Apocalyptic difficulty.

The main difference between this and Normal difficulty is that hits inflict a lot more damage. Enemies (including bosses) still seem to have roughly the same amount of health from what I observed. However, if you've already played the game a bit and are used to the combat (particularly dashing, knowing what weapon to use when, and knowing when to block/counter), this helps a lot.

You will also find this easier if you acquire wrath cores and lifestones as early as possible in the game.

Note that if you have won the Abyssal Armour on a previous playthrough, you will be given the option of carrying this over when starting a new game (this is the only item that you have the opportunity to carry over). If you choose to do this, Apocalyptic difficulty is actually not much tougher than Normal - the Abyssal Armour substantially reduces damage taken and also leeches health from enemies when you damage them.
