Assassin’s Creed Mirage was shown in detail at the Ubisoft Forward event and brings back many of the series’ classic tropes that have long been dormant.
Featured in the latest footage for Assassin’s Creed Mirage confirms the emergence of assassination tools such as blow darts and smoke bombs. Moreover, the kills are confirmed to be one-hit, similar to older pre-RPG titles from before the mid-2010s.
That’s not to say that nothing new has been added to the established formula, as Assassin’s Creed Mirage borrows from recent Splinter Cell games with a similar mark-and-execute feature. He sees Basim, returning from Valhalla, quickly kill targets with the push of a button.
What’s more exciting is that you’ll have to plan your own entry and exit points as you chase down targets because black box open missions Assassin’s Creed Community return. We see Basim interacting with NPCs for distraction, throwing a colored smoke bomb for distraction, and a throwback to the Unity-era parkour system. Color us excited!
It’s really a return to form for Assassin’s Creed, which has become a staple since its release The beginning of Assassin’s Creed in 2017. For over six years and two concurrent sequels, Ubisoft’s flagship series has tended to grow in size with huge worlds to explore and be expansive, but consequently less detailed overall. Mirage tries to defy the trend and even pays homage to the original Assassin’s Creed since 2007 with killer offices you literally drop into – nice touch. We can’t wait to see what comes next.
