The iconic classic hidden blade from the older AC games has not been as powerful in the latest games such as Origins for example. In other words, sneaking up on an enemy with the weapons of the assassins is no longer equal to guaranteed death. High-level enemies are tough.

This will for sure make classic AC players happy, I know I am. This is one of the features I’ve missed in later iteration of the series since I’m a stealth player.
You can also specifically change the difficulty levels for battles, stealth and exploration, as well as choose different control methods to navigate the menus. Speaking of control: you can completely customize it to your liking and taste. You can read more about all the different options here.
