It’s set to be an exciting year for Assassin’s Creed fans. After Mirage took the series back to its roots last year, the upcoming Codename Red will mark a return to the RPG formula.

While Assassin’s Creed’s RPG entries don’t always prove to be as popular as their stealth-based counterparts, Codename Red does boast a promising premise, which is quite the tongue twister. Set in Feudal Japan, the game will reportedly star a male samurai and female shinobi with the samurai believed to be based on the real life figure of Yasuke. This remains unconfirmed for now, but we should get an update and trailer during Ubisoft’s upcoming summer showcase. In the meantime, fans are revisiting old favourites with one Assassin’s Creed Odyssey player finding a new way to enjoy the game.

Take a look at Codename Red’s teaser trailer below.

Reddit user OldWorldBluesIsBest wrote, “AC Odyssey just gifted me an amazing way to play the game, and now I’m baffled it isn’t a standard game mode. I got a weapon in AC Odyssey that completely changed the way I play the game and made it 1000x times better. [...] I looted the Falx of Olympus which had an effect - not sure if it’s random or tied to the item - that doubles all player damage but puts player health perpetually at 25%. And holy s**t does it make the game so much more engaging and fun.”

“It’s crazy how much this makes the game more tactical, punishing, and feel like a traditional AC game,” they continued. “Hell, it’s harder than most of the other games ever were. This has actually rejuvenated all interest I had in the game. I wish Ubisoft had made this a regular difficulty, as it fixes so many issues I and others had with the game: tanky enemies, undangerous combat, auto-pilot gaming, etc.”

It’s true that there are several Cursed Engravings which really do overhaul the gameplay, offering both high risk and high reward. “AC Origins has this as well with some weapons,” added YEF-Moment13. “A third of your health but thrice the damage.” Zegram_Ghart wrote, “Yeh, it’s an option they put in for people who prefer it to play more like old style games - pretty slick option IMO.” It’s definitely a feature worth checking out if that style of gameplay appeals to you.
