During Ubisoft Forward 2023, an exciting gameplay walkthrough of Assassin’s Creed Mirage introduced us to its rebooted gameplay. Well, we say reboot but Mirage has a distinctly familiar feel that is a real nostalgia trip for veteran fans.

The latest trailer features protagonist Basim embarking on a mission to assassinate a captain. This showcase provided a glimpse of the series’ latest mechanics, including the utilization of a blowdart tool and the beloved bird companion’s classic targeting system.

Devoted fans can expect a rejuvenated gaming experience in the forthcoming release, blending fresh elements with familiar ones from the series. The trailer offered a comprehensive overview of the game’s innovative features, such as the ability to freeze time and execute multiple enemies. Additionally, the blowdart tool demonstrated its prowess, reminiscent of the Blowpipe from previous Assassin’s Creed titles.

The walkthrough predominantly emphasized stealthy gameplay but escalated into a thrilling, all-out brawl, showcasing the iconic assassination kills the series is renowned for.

As the narrative unfolds, we witness Basim’s transformation, evolving him into an elite assassin of the new creed. Longtime fans will be delighted to discover a heartfelt homage to the original game that started it all as they embark on a journey to the legendary Alamut, the ancestral home of all assassins. This endeavor will shed light on the origins of the creed, deepening the understanding of the series’ intricate lore.

In addition to Basim, players will encounter Roshan, a skilled assassin from the Hidden Ones’ stronghold, who takes Basim under her wing as his mentor. The latest story trailer offers a glimpse into their partnership, guiding Basim to becoming the next master assassin.

With the unveiling of more details about Assassin’s Creed Mirage during Ubisoft Forward, fans can eagerly anticipate its upcoming release.
