Assassin’s Creed Mirage Leak Suggests Gameplay Is Similar to Origins
A fresh leak for Ubisoft’s forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage suggests that the game features gameplay similar to that of Assassin’s Creed Origins.
YouTuber j0nathan is back with some more information on the next game in the Assassin’s Creed series. This time, he claims that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will feature gameplay similar to that of Assassin’s Creed Origins. He also shared several other details regarding the gameplay, in addition to an expected release date.
Based on what the YouTuber stated, Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s expected release date is October 12, 2023. He said that the game was originally conceived as DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but later repurposed into a standalone title as it gained more depths during development. He added that the gameplay is closer to that of Assassin’s Creed Origins, with lots of gadgets and items to use during missions, a smaller skill tree with only around 15 skills to unlock, and several weapons to unlock.
According to j0nathan, Assassin’s Creed Mirage features 4 main assassination targets, similar to the first Assassin’s Creed game, where players will need to investigate the aforementioned targets to know who they are and gain information before assassinating them. The protagonist, Basim, is said to start off as a simple thief who comes across an artifact of the First Civilization. The game’s story is said to explore how the Order went from “The Hidden Ones” to the assassins.
Although the world map is comprised of only Baghdad, the city itself is much bigger than Paris in Assassin’s Creed Unity, as it also has villages and desert areas on the outskirts. Missions will involve stealth, such as tailing NPCs and listening in on their conversations. The YouTuber added that Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s parkour isn’t as fluid as it was in Assassin’s Creed Unity. The game also marks a return for factions, with which you’ll have the opportunity to recruit thieves, mercenaries etc., much like in the Assassin’s Creed games featuring Ezio.
