Don't Nod is back on the market thanks to Banishers Ghosts of New Eden. This time, the development team wanted to change the cards on the table and propose an adventure that is different from those proposed in the very famous Life is Strange series.
For this reason, it might be useful to refer to some Banishers Ghosts of New Eden beginner tips that you can follow to kick off your experience in the game world that the development team wanted to create.
This is certainly not their first experiment to move away from the gameplay style of Life is Strange (do you remember Vampyr?), but it is still important to clarify so as not to fall into confusion.
Banishers Ghosts of New Eden Beginner Tips You Should Follow
Banishers Ghosts of New Eden is an action RPG in which we have the opportunity to play two different characters, Red and Antea. Without spoiling too much in terms of the plot (it's still a Don't Nod game, so the plot is the focal point), we can tell you that it's about two lovers who fight against spirits together.
You will have the opportunity to explore New Eden and take on various missions that will allow you to meet many characters during your adventure. But let's put together some tips that you can follow to make this journey easier.
Red and Antea
It might seem obvious, but the first thing to do is to understand how both characters work. As you can well imagine, each of them will have its own characteristics and peculiarities, so they can be used at different moments of your adventure to make the most of their abilities.
Consequently, it is very important that you learn to know the characters you will act as throughout the entire game, as this will allow you to greatly simplify the entire adventure.
Both characters have their own health bars and skill sets that you can rely on. Antea, for example, is very useful when you have to fight against spirits or possessed people; Red, on the other hand, has a fighting style that is more suited to fighting humans.
Obviously, since Antea has the ability to manage non-human abilities and attacks, they are more powerful than Red's, so they are very useful when you have to face more difficult enemies.
Another game mechanic you will have to pay attention to is that of the ring. Both characters will be equipped with a ring, which, in some cases, will shine. If the light is red, it means that Red will have to interact with a nearby object in order to pick it up; otherwise, if the ring glows green, it will be Antea's turn to collect whatever is nearby.
Pay close attention to this game mechanic because she will be able to save you a lot of time and directly use the right character.
Skills and Upgrades
From the point of view of the skills and upgrades you can carry out, we advise you not to rush too much and not immediately spend the points you have available. Banishers Ghosts of New Eden is a game that requires a certain calm, also due to its narrative (which we will talk about shortly).
Consequently, spending points on skills or upgrades that later turn out to be less useful is certainly not a wise choice. Our advice is to take some time to understand what type of game style you want to adopt, in addition to becoming familiar with the characters.
However, in case you have invested in the wrong skills, Banishers Ghosts of New Eden will give you the opportunity to reset them and be able to assign the points you have accumulated up to that point from the start.
For this reason, therefore, there is no pressing need to necessarily find the right skills. In the event of an error, you can retrace your steps. It goes without saying, of course, that if you follow the advice to take your time and think through your choices, you will hardly make a mistake in choosing skills.
As far as equipment is concerned, however, we advise you against upgrading it from the beginning, as, as you continue through the game, you will find better and better equipment. For this reason, it is quite useless to spend too many resources at the beginning of the game.
As we will see later, resources are a very important aspect in a game like Banishers Ghosts of New Eden, so you have to give them the right weight. Save them for when you find some great pieces of equipment that allow you to have some noteworthy passive skills and bonuses.
Resources, Rituals and Exploration
As we just said, resources are of extreme importance in Banishers Ghosts of New Eden, but they are not just for your equipment. In Banishers Ghosts of New Eden, you will have the opportunity to perform rituals during your adventure.
Initially, there will only be three, but then two more will be added to your arsenal. These rituals are important to the game's economy but require resources to perform. Consequently, our advice is to collect all the resources you find along your journey.
Of course, it almost goes without saying that exploration is the key to all of this. The more you explore the game map, the more you will have the chance to obtain resources that can be useful to you in various ways. The map is full of secrets to discover, so don't just think about what is happening in the main plot; try to expand your horizons, for example, to the secondary missions that are present in the game.
These missions, in fact, will be very useful for gaining experience and resources and increasing the skills of your characters. Take advantage of everything that Banishers Ghosts of New Eden has to offer.
Choices are Important
Finally, we couldn't help but tell you about the choices you can make during your adventure. Banishers Ghosts of New Eden is still a game created by Don't Nod and therefore the plot is, probably, the most important thing in the entire game.
Every choice you will have in front of you, even the one that may seem most insignificant, is actually important for the economy of the game. Don't choose without paying attention to what is happening, because you might regret it later.
We won't go into detail so as not to spoil anything about what happens in terms of the plot, also precisely because it's important that you discover it yourself by playing, but we would like to underline that you will have to make your choices by thinking carefully about what you want to do and what direction times give to your adventure in Banishers Ghosts of New Eden.
Every choice has a big impact on the story and everything you (not) decide to do will lead you to one ending rather than another.
