Assassin’s Creed Mirage Releases Oct 12

During yesterdays Playstation Showcase Ubisoft announced that the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will launch on Oct. 12 while releasing a trailer for it as well.


The new trailer follows Basim, guided by his fellow Hidden Ones, leveraging his tools and skills to track down and eliminate his targets. One of the most agile and resourceful Assassins in franchise history, Basim’s singular playstyle emphasizes stealth and deadly assassination techniques, featuring new abilities such as the Assassin’s Focus which allows him to mark and assassinate several enemies in a row. Additionally, the gameplay footage showcases the vibrant city of Baghdad, whose density and verticality provide plenty of opportunity for players to exploit Basim’s Parkour abilities and swiftly approach their objectives.

One thing to note here is that Ubisoft went out of their way to highlight that this is a condensed narrative driven adventure, while of course highlighting all the things we have loved about the series over the year. We knew that after Valhalla they would be taking a different approach to their games and I am all for it. I do greatly enjoy the series but often suffer fatigue after awhile with the sheer amount of things to do. A more focused adventure I think will breathe some fresh air into the series and make it more accessible to new comers or folks who don’t have the hundreds of hours to invest in a game.

Either way this is one to watch, keep an eye on GamesReviews for more coverage throughout the summer. New trailer below:
