The PlayStation Showcase brought us great games, but one of the most eye-catching ones was Assassin’s Creed Mirage. With a particularly striking trailer, it seems to be everything we expect from Assassin’s Creed. The parkour, stealth assassinations, climbing, one-on-one combat – all those things we associate with the Ubisoft saga, and it looks like Assassin’s Creed Mirage is bringing them back to us.
While we don’t know all the details of the game yet, what this first gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Mirage sells us is that Bassin, the protagonist of this game, is going back to the roots of the franchise. Assassin’s Creed Mirage seems to be returning to a more classic style of gameplay. Instead of traversing an almost infinite open-world map, it appears that everything will be confined to a large but relatively contained city, where the focus will be on the mechanics that made us fall in love with the early Assassin’s Creed games: the incredible use of movement and the satisfaction of combat and executions.
This would be a welcomed change, especially because it has been a long time since we had an Assassin’s Creed game of this kind. Assassin’s Creed Origins seemed like it would bring us back to the roots, to a simpler and more contained experience, and while it is a foundational game that we all appreciate and respect, it ended up being something else. Having a game that brings back the excitement and feeling that the classics of the series were capable of generating, something that no other game or franchise has been able to replicate, would be incredible for Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
With a release date set for October 12th, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is confirmed to launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows. Therefore, while we still have to wait a bit to find out if our impressions and desires will be fulfilled, until then, we have faith that this will be the Assassin’s Creed game that brings the series back to its roots.
