Assassin’s Creed Mirage announces its release date in a supercharged trailer
The stealth approach will be firmly at the center of the gameplay, as will parkour. Our hooded assassin jumps from beam to beam and uses his environment to move from roof to roof. Emblematic movement of the series, we even have the right to a leap of the angel in the rules of the art.
The trailer also hints that it will be possible to fulfill an objective in different ways. Here, Basim must infiltrate a stronghold. He can choose to bribe the guards so that they look away, fight his way through with great blows of secret blades, or pick the pockets of his enemies to seize a key.
We also have a brief overview of the combat system, which seems to be much more nervous and cinematic than on the previous installments. Moreover, the RPG Light dimension has obviously been left aside, as evidenced by the absence of a life bar above enemies.
Finally, the trailer ends with important information: the release date of Assassin’s Creed Mirage! Eh yes, Ubisoft’s title will be released on next-gen consoles and PC this October 12, 2023. On your calendars!
