Should I choose Assist mode in Steelrising?

Need a little assistance?

In Steelrising, you play as Aegis, a sentient automat. During the French Revolution, your mission is to fight back against a Tyrant King by defeating his many automats. As this is a soulslike title from Developer Spiders, this can be a challenging game. If you wish to experience the story without difficulty, Spiders have included an Assist mode. This guide covers whether you enable the Assist mode in Steelrising.

How to enable Assist mode in Steelrising?

The assist mode can be enabled when starting a new game. After selecting New Game, you will have the option to enable Assist mode. If you have already begun your playthrough, you can enable Assist mode by pausing the game, selecting the Options menu, and Assist mode.

We don't recommend enabling Assist mode unless you are unable to progress. As some difficulty-related achievements will not be unlockable by enabling Assist mode. You must start a new game in standard mode to obtain them.
