Not exactly a solution, but more of a heads up that you can actually die and continue your hardcore journey. For those familiar with the Van Helsing hardcore achievements, it works the same way.

Note that this may not work for everyone. Others have stated that it didn't work for them. I have been dying pretty deliberately, and I'm able to recover my character consistently. (Yes, it is in fact a HC character, I checked!)

Method:

When you die, DO NOT PRESS A AND DO NOT QUIT THE GAME!
It's imperative you don't quit. If you do, you force the game to save before shutting down and hence saving the death to the cloud.
That is exactly the thing you're avoiding with this trick. Die, don't press anything or quit in any way and delete the save while the game is running.

Simply hit the home button, go into your game settings and delete the save game locally, NOT both. I also delete the reserved space, I don't think it matters, but I delete it anyway.
Quit the game (if it hasn't already by deleting the save game and restart it. The game will boot up and sync the cloud save game to your xbox. Lo and behold, there's your HC character again.

Keep in mind that you do lose some progress... I got set back 3 levels, but it still beats starting over by a mile. You may want to make a habit of going into the menu and save to mitigate the potentiall progress loss.

Hope this helps!

This can be obtained on Casual Difficulty with your hardcore character. I attempted my first playthrough as an Embermage but ran into issues of getting overwhelmed and lost that character. Second character I ran an Engineer. Early on Spiderbots and Flame hammer helped crowd control and did massive damage. Later in the game take advantage of Forcefield Skill from the Aegis skill tree, this prevented any health loss at the later stages of the game.

Blitz Skills
Flame Hammer (starting)
Coup De Grace (if points can be spared)
Construction Skills
Healing Bot (starting)
Spider Mines (level 14)
Gun Bot
Fire and Spark (if points can be spared)
Aegis Skills
Forcefield (level 7)

Stat Points
Pump most points in Vitality and Strength then about 2/3 of what you place in those two pump them into Dexterity. Lastly for put points in Focus as needed so you have enough to cast you skills

Hope this helps those having issues. Always take it slow and sweep and clear areas as you move through the areas/dungeons.

Note: Other solution provided did not work for me when my hardcore character died.

Also after posting this i did some research and there is a more in-depth guide for solo hardcore via steam community guides. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=23785...

Good luck
