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.|

Parrying and Dodging become essential skills to master the higher the difficulty you choose.
|Enemy damage output and resistances 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.|
