If you’re somewhat experienced with guitar, I would characterize this arrangement as easy to play. The tab is very short, and easy to read. Any bar chords are simply done using your first finger.

As indicated in the tab, my order of play goes like this:

Intro, Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus

Intro, Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus, Post Chorus

Intro, Pre-Chorus, Chorus, Post-Chorus — Intro (End).
