The recent PlayStation Showcase brought us our first look at the Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘s gameplay. The gameplay is very reminiscent of the old games in the franchise, that made the series what it is today. A new Assassin’s Creed Mirage BTS reveals the thoughts behind taking the title back to its roots.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage BTS Takes a Deeper Dive Into the Upcoming Title
From the last few entries, Assassin’s Creed has been very different from its roots. While the primary focus of the originals was parkour and stealth, the new ones took a different approach. And Ubisoft is listening to its fans by finally taking the title back to its roots. This new BTS video shows how the devs made it happen:
The three main takeaways from the BTS are increased focus on the following points:
- Parkour: Parkour was what defined the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Mirage keeps the old style and revamps the mechanics with modern-day tech. It is much closer in nature to the Ezio games.
- Stealth: Again it borrows the main style from older titles but makes it better with advanced AI. Blending in with the crowd, hiding in plain sight, etc. are all part of Mirage.
- Assassinations: From rescue missions to assassinations and to fight for freedom with the help of the Hidden Ones, everything links Mirage to its ancestors.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will release on October 12, 2023, for the PlayStation 4, and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Pre-orders for the title are now live.
