Today during Ubisoft’s Foward event, we got a new look at gameplay from Assassin’s Creed Mirage – a throwback of sorts to the long-running series’ roots.
In the footage, we see a few assassinations, a chase, and our protagonist Basim taking on missions. There’s also a look at some of Basim’s special powers.
Check out the gameplay footage below.
Notably, the Assassin’s Creed series shifting away from this style of game was, in fact, due to franchise fatigue. 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins took the series towards an RPG slant, furthered by Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Valhalla. But all old things are new again, and fatigue gives way to nostalgia. It’ll be interesting to see how and if this throwback lands when it comes out.
You can also check out a new trailer for the game below.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released on October 12.
