Where's rewind mechanic?
A shorter, more narrative-driven game than recent entries in the series, Assassin's Creed Mirage takes place 20 years before the events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, as players meet a 17-year-old Basim (now voiced by Lee Majdoub) struggling with nightmarish visions and living life as a cunning street thief. Fortunately for Basim, the Hidden Ones (including his mentor Roshan, voiced by Shohreh Aghdashloo) see his potential, and help him flee Baghdad to the Hidden Ones' fortress of Alamut. As he learns their mysterious rituals and powerful tenets, he will hone his unique abilities, discover his true nature, and come to understand a new Creed – one that will change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.
Built as an homage to the first Assassin's Creed games, Mirage pays tribute to the series' roots, as players join the proto-Assassin order known as the Hidden Ones and grow to become a master assassin. Baghdad in the ninth century was a bustling metropolis, and it serves as the perfect dense, urban hunting ground, as Basim stalks his prey using the series' largest assortment of tools to date. While they haven't quite adopted the name "Assassins" at this point in history, make no mistake: The Hidden Ones are a powerful and established order, with resources and the all-important Creed to guide them. As Basim explores Baghdad, he'll be able to get contracts and upgrades from a network of Hidden One bureaus throughout the city, as well as collect clues on his targets and take them down with swift assassinations.
Of course, an assassin's greatest advantage comes from their climbing ability, and as the series returns to a large-scale urban environment, Basim will need to leap across rooftops, scale tall towers, and flee guards by parkouring seamlessly through Baghdad's four distinct districts. When information can't be gained by gathering clues, Basim's eagle Enkidu can take to the skies, survey areas, and tag enemies for Basim to stealthily eliminate.
There's always a beginning. Also it's F** Bordeaux, the same city home of Asobo Studio and where I live ^^ There's plenty of talented people there, but the budget is not the same as a full open world sequel like the "Red" one.Support studio, never done a game by themselves before
I think I'll be cautious about this AC game then
and they are using the fosha not some dialect which is awesome. I really hate when video games developers hire some close minded Egyptians or lebaneses dub teams.I'm impressed how Ubisoft is nailing the Arabic settings with actual arabic language and actual written words and going so far as the details in the collector's case which is very nice. Other devs would just slap fake arabic and be done with it. Good job Ubi.
As for the trailer, I thought it was nice. Although, going back to the roots means dropping RPG but I will wait and see. Syndicate was action adventure and it was incredible.
Yeah, what a fuck is going on with that? It only worked in the first game and got worse and worse throughout the franchise. It would be such a relief to not have to deal with that.Is this still a game within the animus or can we finally just play an assassin in the "real" world ? This high techy stuff within the "old" worlds or disconnecting when you didn't behave like the dev want you to was annoying (unity was my last AC).
Not that I'm going to buy a Ubisoft game anyway ... just curious.
Not sales wise they arent. The reason why we are even getting all this AC content is because of how big the games have sold since they rebooted into Witcher 3 style rpg's.Hopefully it's good and well received so they can realize that old AC is WAY better than the last 3
Assassin's Creed Mirage will launch in 2023 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Stadia, and even Amazon Luna.Is this the next gen only one? I hope so.
Basically playing Aladin/prince of Persia again. Love that. Wish it was a new character tho.
I want to play an AC game but I do not want to play as fucking Basim.
Good for those who want to roleplay as bad guys though.
Mirage is $50?
2023 will potentially be the greatest year ever in gaming history.
Fucking lame that they have announced a gazillion pre-order options before they even show any gameplay.
"Give us all your money long before we have proved this game will actually be any good"
if we can have magical artifacts and alien gods i think we can have white people right ?Do you realize where this game takes place? Serious question.
