Ubisoft is at it again with its newest installment in the beloved Assassin’s Creed series: Assassin’s Creed Mirage, set to launch on October 12, 2023. With its announcement, Ubisoft has released some exciting new gameplay footage that will have fans of the game already counting down the days until launch.
Set twenty years after the events of the previous game, Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes players to the beautiful setting of Baghdad. Although it may feature a more modern aesthetic than some of the older games, fans can still expect some of the classic elements and mechanics from the original Assassin’s Creed series titles. The classic Vault Over Object mechanic makes an official return, and traversal looks smoother than ever.
In addition to the Vault Over Object mechanic, Assassin’s Creed Mirage also features some new abilities such as Eagle Vision Lite. This enhanced version of the familiar Eagle Vision mechanic allows players to analyze environments and people, making it easier to track down their targets.
The game’s world has also been given an impressive level of depth. Rather than merely being a flat play area, Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s Baghdad boasts a variety of locations, from the bustling markets to the lonely rooftops. All these areas are designed to feel alive, with NPCs going about their daily lives.
With Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft is sure to provide gamers with countless hours of entertainment. The game’s all-new storyline and mechanics offer plenty of reasons for longtime fans to dive back into the world of Assassins, while also providing an accessible entry point for those who haven’t experienced the series before. All in all, Assassin’s Creed Mirage looks to be a thrilling adventure, and we can’t wait to explore what it has to offer when it launches this October.
