It looks like more details about Assassin’s Creed: Mirage have been leaked ahead of its full reveal on September 10th. As before, Youtuber j0nathan is the person who has revealed key details about the latest Assassin’s Creed game.
According to j0nathan, Baghdad will be the only city in the game that players can explore. But the city will apparently be divided into four districts or zones and will have its own distinct chief. There will also be deserts, oases and rivers, but whether they would be explorable has not been confirmed.
Assassin abilities and weapons like throwing knives and hideouts will be available in Mirage. In addition to that, there would be a lot of NPCs in the streets on a scale similar to that of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. There will also be parkour elements like using lanterns to swing around corners and poles to reach distant buildings as well.
From this, it seems that Ubisoft will bring back notable features in Assassin’s Creed: Unity. But Unity was plagued by performance issues at launch, for which it received mixed reviews.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is supposedly set in Baghdad, Iran in the late 9th century. This time the game will function Basim, a prominent character from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft is taking a ‘back to basics’ approach with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, taking inspiration from the first game.
Various RPG elements would also be removed from Mirage. This includes dialogue choices and the leveling system. Abilities like Eagle Vision will also return and will appear alongside the drone bird. Eagle Vision was last featured in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate before being replaced by the drone bird feature from Origins onwards. More details about Mirage will be revealed during Ubisoft Forward, scheduled for September 10.
