First things first, let’s get the important detail out of the way. Ubisoft has dated the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and it will be arriving this coming 12 October on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The reveal at the PlayStation Showcase also showed off some new moves that Basim can pull off, and it should make fans quite happy.
With the game as part of the 15th-anniversary celebrations of the franchise, it is set to be a perfect opportunity for the developers to revisit the roots of Assassin’s Creed. And as part of the direction comes a new feature, Assassin’s Focus.
In Mirage, this new skill will allow Basim to mark and assassinate several targets in a row, which is always a satisfying affair. There are also classic Assassin tools such as throwing knives and smoke bombs to utilise in this adventure. Parkour is also getting a new tool in the form of the Pole Vault.
With the game focusing more on being a true-blue assassin, players can expect more stealth to rule the day, especially in Blackbox missions, which promise to have various opportunities for Basim to leverage and help him make his way to his targets.
The Mirage trailer also showed off a new character, with Fuladh joining in the fun. He is a Rafiq and Eagle-Master to the Hidden Ones, and along with Master Roshan, help guides Basim. Fuladh will be another important character in Basim’s journey to becoming a Hidden One.
All in al, it seems like Assassin’s Creed Mirage is shaping up nicely to bring players back to the goodness of the old times, coupled with modern innovations to continually evolve the formula. Get ready to don the cape and say the creed this coming 12 October when the game launches on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
