Ubisoft released the first official video for Assassin’s Creed Mirage this Saturday (10). This time around, the focus will be on action and adventure, seemingly without as much emphasis on RPG systems.
Again, players will control a character chosen by the Brotherhood and progress from novice to master as the story progresses. It looks like the new game will return to the series’ roots in several ways.
Set in Baghdad, Assassin’s Creed Mirage stars Bassim (before Assassin’s Creed Valhalla). The brotherhood itself should be given a lot of importance in the story, as revealed in the trailer. Also, during the Assassin’s Creed 2022 Showcase, it was confirmed that stealth will indeed be an important part of the experience. For example, even the CGI preview had references to Ezio-era games.
To some extent, this was expected. After all, the Mirage-related leaks already hinted that this would be the case. Therefore, long-time fans can consider returning the franchise if they don’t like the model of the latest trilogy as much.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in 2023. The exact release date and platforms have not been confirmed yet.
Other Assassin’s Creed games
The latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion was also revealed by Ubisoft this Saturday (10). Recently titled Assassin’s Creed Valhalla — The Last Chapter, the expansion in question is free and ties together certain parts of Eivor’s journey, meeting important characters in this final chapter.
Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade is a brand new open world mobile game in China that will allow players to create their own character. This is the first time players will be able to create their own character from scratch in the game, as revealed in the Assassin’s Creed 2022 Showcase.
Also with the title “Codename” added to the color, Assassin’s Creed Codename Red is another game in development. The focus, in this case, will be Japan. They promised “home” elements for the title.
Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe is under development by Ubisoft Montreal and is one of the latest titles in the “Codename” title.
Another Assassin’s Creed mobile game is in development for Netflix. This is a different project from the aforementioned Codename Jade. No further details are available at this time.
And finally, an important revelation: Assassin’s Creed Infinity isn’t exactly a game. It is, in fact, a “hub” that will “bring players together in a meaningful way.” Ubisoft is currently exploring ways to launch online games that integrate with Infinity.
