Assassin’s Creed Mirage Video Preview – Three Hours Hands-on

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Preview

Later this year, Ubisoft will be releasing Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Mirage is a return to the roots of the series in more ways than one. Visually, we are reminded of the very first entry to the series. It is also a return to form in terms of the Brotherhood of Assassins, otherwise known as the Hidden Ones.

You play as Basim, who you may remember from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This game takes place before Valhalla and, presumably, we will see Basim get from being common street thief to the Master Assassin we eventually becomes.

Assassins Creed Mirage

In terms of gameplay, there are strong elements of some of the earlier games. The swordplay and combat is very reminiscent of the first titles. Combat emphasizes on parries, dodges, and carefully timed strikes rather than brute force. Though Assassin’s Creed Mirage is not absent of all modern features. The parkour and free running is feels very much like Assassin’s Creed Unity. It feels very flowy and easy to control ascent and descent on buildings.

There are skill trees to invest points in, which will unlock abilities and tools. The Phantom tree improves stealth skills, Trickster skills unlock more tools and gadgets, and the Predator skill tree improves fighting abilities.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will launch on October 5th for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
