Apparently, Ubisoft has just confirmed a feature of Assassin’s Creed Mirage which should greatly appeal to the oldest fans of the license.
Temporary change of direction for Assassin’s Creed. The license has its copies sold in the millions, with an open-world RPG formula that has attracted a whole new audience of fans of adventure and exploration. Besides that, there are nostalgics. The old-timers who remember the good old days when being an assassin meant following the credo to the letter, hiding, identifying your target and quietly eliminating them. “Show yourself, but remain invisible”, “your blade will not shed the blood of an innocent”… these precepts, at the heart of the ideology of the Assassins, are lost from episode to episode, but Ubisoft does not forget them . A tribute to the very first game, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will try to reconnect the first fans with the license. And it will undoubtedly have much more than its gameplay as an asset to achieve this.
An option dedicated to nostalgics in Assassin’s Creed Mirage
In a first behind-the-scenes video of the development, the team returned to the genesis of the project. She does not hide her ambition: to deliver a game with an authentic and modern experience, which comes as close as possible to the episodes that have made the reputation of the license. Return to where it all began and pay homage to the beginnings of the saga. This is the credo ofAssassin’s Creed Mirage. ” A love letter to the origins of the saga sums up Stéphane Boudon, creative director of the game quite well. Parkour will be at the center of the experience, with an emphasis on comfort and fluidity, just like infiltration. No question of carrying out a massacre in the greatest calm in the middle of the streets of Baghdad, discretion will be in order. But for the most nostalgic, Ubisoft has thought of a small option which should have an effect on those concerned.
At its launch, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be equipped with a nostalgic filter that will desaturate the colors with the blue-gray tones of the very first episode. Perfect to feel at home and we must admit that the rendering is enough to cause a little twinge in the heart of the oldest. ” This project is the work of a team of enthusiasts with their own vision of the Assassin experience. concludes Stephane Boudon. See you at Ubisoft Forward this Monday, June 12 to find out more about this homecoming. Remember if necessary that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available on October 12, 2023 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well as on PC.
