Steelrising is a heartwarming action set in Paris in 1789 during an alternate version of the French Revolution. Storytelling is an important skill in Spiders, and you’ll have to unravel various intrigues, defeat incredible enemies and explore a distorted version of Paris to restore power to the people and bring the revolution to one of several possible endings.
The soulslike genre is still very demanding and all of its inspired mechanics can be difficult to navigate, so we offer a help mode.
U Steelrisingseveral settings that are very common in soulslike games can be adjusted:
- Amount of damage taken by Aegis (your player character)
- The rate at which stamina regenerates
- Is XP (Anima Essence) lost or saved after death
- How easy it is to perform perfect cooldowns
This topic was raised early in development after reports from fans who found our previous game’s story mode too difficult. The team was also able to attend an accessibility training course to better find the most suitable solution for Steelrising. In the end, we decided not to have a difficulty mode per se, but to allow players to set individual parameters themselves to tailor their experience with the combat system.
The pace of the game remains the same, and the attack times and aggressiveness of the enemies also remain the same as in the base game.
Help mode can be activated at the start of the game, and can be activated or deactivated at any time from the options menu. So feel free to only use it on a specific boss or mob you’re having trouble with. However, be careful if you intend to unlock all the achievements, as some achievements related to the difficulty will be unavailable if the help mode has been activated at least once during the game.
Of course, you can also remap most of the buttons on the controller.
We hope that those who are scared of soulslike will be tempted by this first foray into the genre to experience the world Steelrisingin what remains a spider RPG through and through. Steelrising is available starting today on the Xbox Store for Xbox Series X|S. Revolution lives!
