Assassin’s Creed Mirage Platforms
Assassin’s Creed is a huge franchise, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that it isn’t quite ready to let go of older-gen consoles and the massive market they present just yet.
So, Mirage will be coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Amazon Luna, essentially running it across the full range of platforms aside from Nintendo Switch.
The story of Assassin’s Creed Mirage
As reported months ago by a major Bloomberg report, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will feature Basim, who played a major role in the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, although it is set during Basim’s time period rather than that of Valhalla.
The game will feature a recreation of medieval Baghdad as its main setting, a tighter focus, and a smaller map which has also seen the game priced lower than recent releases in the series.
Basim is a key player in how Assassin’s order was established and strengthened, so we’ll see a new side to the series’ increasingly obscure and complicated mythology.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage game
Recent Assassin’s Creed games have been huge – Odyssey and Valhalla simply offer huge maps with several large settlements and huge amounts of water to cross, which won’t be a goal in Mirage.
The game will apparently go back to the roots of the series a bit more, focusing more closely on stealth and lethality, in a smaller world. For fans of the series, this could be a breath of fresh air – despite all that Odyssey, Valhalla and Origins have won over new fans, there’s nothing wrong with a game that won’t take dozens of hours to complete. hours to complete.
This should mean less RPG elements and potentially no options for dialogue choices and branching quests, which might seem like a waste but could result in a much tighter experience.
