This is a guide on the best difficulty settings to use when playing Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Read on to learn how each difficulty setting works, how to change difficulty settings, and how it affects the world around you!
List of Contents
Difficultiy settings in the game are separated into three categories: Exploration, Combat, and Stealth.
Each category affects a different part of your overall gameplay experience, making some things harder, and others easier.
In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the categorized difficulty settings allows you to customize your gameplay experience the way you want to.
Whether you want a narrative and easy driven game, or a hardcore slugfest until the end, there is a difficulty setting just for you!
This category affects how much you can see on the compass and the world map for points of interests and opportunities.
|Adventurer||More icons will guide you toward your rewards. Opportunities are visible from far away.|
|Feedback on world map opportunities and regular information on the compass.|
|Pathfinder||Minimal HUD and World Map information for a more immersive experience.|
Combat difficulty directly affects how much damage you receive from enemies, and how much health they have.
Parrying and Dodging become essential skills to master the higher the difficulty you choose.
|Enemy damage output and resistnces are reduced.|
|Vikingr||A balanced combat experience for those who wish to immerse themselves in the Viking ethos.|
|For those players that want a solid but fair combat challenge.|
|An intense combat setting for the ultimate warrior. Enemy health and damage output are increased.|
Difficulty settings for stealth directly influence how harder or easier it will be for you to eliminate enemies quietly or sneak past them.
Making full use of your Raven to chart stealthy entrances and exits and knowing precisely when to move in and out of an enemy's line of sight becomes essential on higher difficulties.
|Guards' perception has been reduced for a less challenging experience.|
|Assassin||Regular guard perception and awareness settings.|
|Guards' perception is increased for enhanced realism, thus adding significant challenges.|
If you ever feel that the game's Exploration, Combat, or Stealth feel too easy or too difficult, you can always go and change the difficulty in the Options Menu.
|1||From your pause menu, press 'Left' on the D-Pad to be taken to the Main Pause Menu.|
|2||Choose 'Options' and navigate to 'Gameplay'.|
|3||Change the difficulty settings for Combat, Exploration, and Stealth. Additional options are also available.|
