Update: Assassin’s Creed Mirage has finally been announced at Ubisoft Forward on September 10, 2022. The first footage of the game has finally come out at the Ubisoft Forward event on September 10, 2022. This is months after the game went viral on the internet with supposed leaks and rumors. It’s expected that more information will be brought to light in the months proceeding with the official launch of the title.
We get to see a supercut of Basim’s life before he joins the order of the Assassins. He’s a pretty thief on the streets of Baghdad and later he rises through the ranks as he journeys to become a Master Assassin as he takes out corrupt enemies of the order. It’s pretty evident that this is a prequel to the events of Valhalla, breaking down Basim’s life and the deeper meaning behind the character as a whole.
What we got to observe was that the main voiceover character in the trailer is the voice of Shoreh Aghdasloo, from the Expanse, Destiny, and Mass Effect. She’ll be playing the role of the character, Roshan who’ll serve as Basim’s mentor and initiator into the Assassin community. Roshan is intended to be Persian, as is Aghdashloo.
The trailer features Basim engaging in fights and performing parkour maneuvers and the trailer ends with Basim removing his finger to complete his initiation as one of the Assassins.
By now, everyone knows that the next entry in the long-running video game franchise Assassin’s Creed is going to be Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Hopefully, we’ll get Infinity somewhere down the line but in the meantime, we’ve got our hands full with Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The game was previously called Assassin’s Creed Rift but that’s long been changed.
New Details About Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Even though it’s the thirteenth entry in the series, the guys at Ubisoft are keeping their focus on core gameplay mechanics, improving them all over. You can keep an eye out for more superior and polished movement and parkour mechanics. On that note, you can say goodbye to gameplay features including leveling system, dialogue choices, and gender selection. It’s definitely going to be different from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Youtuber j0nathon seems to have proven to be a godsend bringing new details about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed. He’s been pretty reliable when it comes to sharing leaks concerning Assassin’s Creed on the internet. So you can trust his words. First up, Baghdad is the only city in the game. We know it’s a bummer but it comes with multiple zones – four to be specific, with their own bosses – along with oases and deserts.
We’re going to the time period from 860 to 870. Next up, it seems players fond of throwing knives will get a chance to do it all over again. Another gameplay mechanic making a comeback is hiding places on the roofs. We’re also getting a lot more NPCs this time around on the street.
j0nathon also talked about how there are lots of interactions for parkour. For example, poles to reach distant buildings and the lanterns that get to turn around the corner of a wall. And the very last detail that the YouTuber revealed is that some assassinations will be in slow-motion. These mechanics bring a lot to the table and have a lot of fans itching to play the game already.
You may not want to believe some of it but Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier has confirmed some of the news and leaks concerning the game. First up, he’s confirmed that the up-and-coming entry into the franchise will be keeping the core game mechanics as the main focus.
We’ve got a supposed release date for Spring 2023. Nothing official from Ubisoft. However, when the game is released, it’s going to be hitting Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Xbox Game Pass, PS5, PS4, and Windows.
There’s a lot riding on the developers behind the game since Ubisoft is also working on a remake of the original Assassin’s Creed at the same time and it’s going to include the legend himself, Altair.The remake plans on a lot of efforts from Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Infinity due to the shared assets among the remake and both titles.
And that’s pretty much it for today’s news. Are you excited about what Jonathon has to say about the game? Let us know in the comments below. We upload on Appauls daily, so stay tuned for more. Till then, see you later and goodbye
