A video showcasing gameplay footage for Assassin’s Creed Mirage shows the game’s comeback and emphasis on stealth mechanics.
The Assassin’s Creed, as a franchise, had its foundations as a stealth-based game. But recent installments in the series see players engaged in a broader experience that sacrifices stealth gameplay in favor of action. Titles starting from Assassin’s Creed Origins up to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fit this description accurately.
Taking to YouTube, Ubisoft posted a little more than 7-minute video displaying the studio’s commitment to pay tribute to the grassroots mechanics. One that made the franchise beloved and renowned.
From the necessity of remaining hidden to the use of various tools to keep enemies distracted to meet objectives. Mirage emphasizes the notion of working under the shadow.
But when things go out of control, like they sometimes do in-game, the game also highlights the need for combat. The player has all the skills necessary at their disposal to ensure that mere distractions and mobs cannot be a major stumbling block to completing in-game goals.
For the first time, players are thrust into the shoes of an assassin set within the Baghdad setting. The backdrop of which paints a refreshing, yet familiar, picture of an assassin’s playground.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is slated for a multi-platform release, including PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, on October 5, 2023.
