Assassin’s Creed Mirage Gameplay
Mirage, the upcoming action-adventure stealth game by Ubisoft, aims to bring back the classic elements of the Assassin’s Creed series, with a focus on a linear story and a decrease in role-playing game elements. The game’s story is set in Baghdad, consisting of four districts and the Hidden Ones’ headquarters, Alamut. Players will use parkour, stealth, and close-quarter combat as core gameplay mechanics. The game also reintroduces “Black Box” assassination missions from previous titles, where players must explore their environment to find different ways to eliminate targets. As a Hidden One, Basim has a vast array of weapons and tools at his disposal, including the iconic Assassin Hidden Blade and smoke bombs.
