It finally released the game’s first gameplay demo Assassin’s Creed Miragewhich confirms that the game of historical assassinations coming from Ubisoft It will take the series back to its roots. Although the presentation is only two minutes long, it contains many rich details. Here are 5 important things you should know.
Back to the roots
You will play as the character Bassem in a game Miragewhich played a pivotal role in the story Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. But the events take place two decades before the time he and Ivor meet, so the events of… Mirage antecedent to Valhalla. You will work with the original Assassins, who are called the ‘Undercover’ (Hidden Ones), under the supervision of ‘Roshan’, who is voiced in English by the Emmy Award-winning actress: ‘Shoriya Aghdashloo’.
Although many of the story elements are taken from the modern RPG era of the series Assassin’s Creedbut the gameplay seems to harken back to the series’ roots AC. events occur Mirage It is set in 9th century Baghdad, and we can see that it provides an urban city map with its design philosophy being directly inspired by the original games. Streets, rooftops, and towers form a maze of ways to parkour, and there isn’t a single open field in sight. it’s a game Assassin’s Creed A real classic. Bassem even underwent the original Assassin’s ritual of cutting off his own finger to make room for the hidden dagger.
After 6 years of designing battle RPGs, it’s great to see Mirage Much focus on stealth. We can see in the show a name that uses many techniques that have not been seen in the series for several years. There is a scene where he silently tracks down an enemy and snatches a key from him, which he then uses to unlock a door. Later we see Bassem sitting and waiting on a bench. Or maybe eavesdrop? Longtime fans of the series will remember that the tracking, pickpocketing and eavesdropping mechanics formed the core of the game’s preparation missions Assassin’s Creed The first one, so it’s great to see those mechanics coming back. We just hope we don’t have to do it in a loop this time…
Choose your method of assassination
but Assassin’s Creed The original isn’t the only game we’ve seen Mirage Get inspired by it in the show. In the middle of the performance, an attendant, Basem, says, “We need to find a way to get in without anyone seeing you. Maybe you can bribe the guards to look the other way.” Basim ignores this advice and chooses to stick the dagger into the guards’ necks instead. But all of this scenario implies that we will have a choice in how we carry out our missions, and this is something we saw for the first time in the series Assassin’s Creed Unity.
The main assassination missions were in Unity Very similar approach to games hitman, each of which can be implemented in different ways using several different opportunities. The “Confessions” mission, for example, allowed players to avoid a difficult stealth situation by stealing the keys to Notre Dame, and upon entering the cathedral, you could kill your target by waiting for him in the confession room. This approach has been completely abandoned yet Assassin’s Creed Syndicatebut it seems Mirage You’ll come back to those ideas and hopefully build on top of them.
with adoption Mirage to the full stealth style roots for which it is known Assassin’s CreedIt was nice to see all the classic killing moves back on screen. Aerial assassinations are seen crosswise and from edges, and Bassem can be seen using a throwing knife for long-range kills (the bow and arrow seems to have remained in RPGs). But there’s more than the classic elements, as we also see the ‘Assassin Focus’ ability throughout gameplay, which allows you to quickly locate and kill multiple targets in a row. It’s like a copy AC from the system Mark and Execute the wonderful of Splinter Celland we hope you will be just as excited when playing.
While that Mirage It sure looks like a stealth game, but it won’t be Assassin’s Creed Completely without bloody battles. We don’t see a lot of swordplay in this trailer, but what little we do see consists of a few very cool new moves, including a very impressive Bassem rolls over an enemy’s back, a knee slide, and a cool sword spin.
Freedom of movement
But it’s not about going back to the roots Assassin’s Creed Only in stealth and sword fights. It was probably the most famous thing in years AC The first is an image of a hooded killer running freely through an ancient city, pursued by guards. Prepare Mirage Lots of parkour moves. And you can see a lot of the classic moves making a comeback, including the beam jump, the corner swing, the rope climb, as well as the famous confidence jump. But it seems we’re also getting new additions to the environmental toolkit, like tall poles that Bassem can climb through wider chasms than he can jump.
