Ubisoft publishes a video of Assassin’s Creed Mirage explaining why it is a return to the roots of the saga in three keys: parkour, stealth and eliminations. In addition, it will have a visual filter in homage to the first Assassin’s Creed from 2007.
A new game of Assassin’s Creed It will be out this fall, as usual (although it has already lost its annual character due to excessive costs and development times). But this installment will be something different: it’s a spin-off, it comes out at a reduced price, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the most anticipated games of the year.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage It will be the game that brings the saga back to its roots. And it is not a simple opinion, that is the way with which Ubisoft is promoting the game.
It is Monday June 12At 7:00 p.m. Spanish peninsular time, the French company is going to hold a Ubisoft Forward event with news about Assassin’s Creed Mirage and the future of the franchise.
But just today they just published an interesting preview explaining why it is a return to the roots of the Assassin’s Creed saga, in three points: parkour, stealth and eliminations.
Parkour, stealth and eliminations, the nostalgic elements of Assassin’s Creed Mirage
He parkour It was a key element of the early games (at the time, many compared it to the recent 3D Prince of Persia), but these moves fell out of favor in the later games (Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla), which felt more like generic RPGs.
In Mirage, the protagonist Basim will move freely through the streets of Bagdad of the 9th century: a return to urban settings (and in the Arab world, 300 years before Altair) with movements that you will recognize from other games in the seriessuch as jumps between corners.
Many of the first Assassin’s will also return stealth movesLike stealthy takedowns on benches in Assassin’s Creed 2: there are no more RPG levels, so takedowns will be deadly, but in return the enemies will have better AI.
And that focus on eliminations also includes the structure of the game, with many missions based on eliminating objectives and with apparent freedom to do it as we want.
Finally, Ubisoft has added an extra touch: a desaturated blue and gray color filter, which emulates the look of the first Assassin’s Creed from 2007: it’s very exaggerated, but very nostalgic.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be out on October 12 ° 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One and PC (via the Epic Store and Ubisoft Store, at a lower price than usual.
