Sweet and Short Affair? Not Anymore
Previously in the Assassin’s Creed series, Mirage, despite its success, faced criticism for being relatively shorter than its contemporary RPGs. Labeled as a “Sweet and Short affair” by Gamer Stones, Mirage left players wanting more after completing quests and uncovering all the books and artifacts. However, with the introduction of New Game+, the game will undergo a remarkable transformation.
New Game+ will grant players the opportunity to revisit the vibrant city of Bagdad, embarking on a fresh journey with existing powers and upgrades, breathing new life into the gameplay experience.
More To Come
Beyond the New Game+ addition, players can also welcome a greater challenge with the inclusion of Permadeath mode. In this mode, a death results in a game over – a true challenge for skilled and pro players.
In short, you won’t respawn again if you die.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is an action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Bordeaux and published by Ubisoft, available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, iOS, Microsoft Windows, and Amazon Luna.
