An Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay leak has seemingly confirmed a return to hardcore stealth.
Following months of leaks, Assassin’s Creed Mirage was officially revealed to the world in September 2022. However, the reveal came with a cinematic trailer and to this day, we’re yet to see any gameplay. Assassin’s Creed Mirage was initially supposed to release early this year, but that launch has been quietly ignored by Ubisoft and with reports of internal delays, some have grown concerned that the game will fail to emerge from the shadows.
Take a look at the cinematic trailer below.
Depending on what reports you read, some say that Mirage will be released in June, while some say at the end of the year. Despite information being as vague as a leak from the Brotherhood of Assassins, one of the common trends surrounding Assassin’s Creed Mirage is that it will focus on stealth, an emphasis that many fans have been eager to return to since the early days of the series. Still, with Ubisoft not releasing gameplay at the time of writing, we can only take the word of insiders.
In a tweet shared by Idle Sloth, an insider named j0nathan, claims to have obtained information on the game's map, combat (including stealth), progression, and more. In addition to that, an 12 October 2023 release date is also mentioned.
(Rumor) Well Know Assassin's Creed insider j0nathan has dropped a new video about Assassin's Creed Mirage, detailing it's map, combat, assassination, progression and says it's releases on October 12thhttps://t.co/exGeHkHAv3 pic.twitter.com/qGv0FdHSXd— Idle Sloth💙💛 (@IdleSloth84_) May 16, 2023
Furthermore, it is claimed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will ditch the RPG levelling-up progression system seen in Origins, Odyssey, as well as Valhalla. In fact, it’s claimed that Mirage won’t be having a levelling-up system at all. If true, it does appear that the next game in the series really is taking it back to basics.
For now, we should take all unconfirmed rumours with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released for PC, PlayStation and Xbox. In related news, fans say the proposed 'Assassin’s Creed World War I' would make for a perfect entry in the series.
