“Assassin’s Creed Mirage” comes a week earlier than planned: The Ubisoft title will be released on October 5th, Ubisoft announced. Originally, the action game should have been released on October 12th. With the release date presented, Ubisoft would like to get some breathing space in a month that will start with titles like “Forza Motorsport” (October 10), “Lords of the Fallen” (October 13), “Alan Wake 2” (October 17). . October) and “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” (October 20) is very packed.
“Baldur’s Gate 3” recently showed that bringing the game forward, which is rather unusual for the games industry, can make sense. Larian’s role-playing game was even pushed forward a whole month to avoid the Bethesda title “Starfield” – at least as much as possible. Both RPGs should demand over 100 hours of gameplay.
In the case of “Baldur’s Gate” it was obviously worth bringing it forward. The Larian game is becoming a mega hit. Up to 875,000 concurrent players played it on Steam, putting it in the top 10 of all time. Larian has not given any sales figures so far, but according to their own statements, they only expected up to 100,000 simultaneous players. The expected sales are likely to have been exceeded many times over. If the title had been released at the same time as “Starfield”, the two top-class artists would probably have had to share the limelight.
Back to Assassin roots
“Assassin’s Creed: Mirage” is a size smaller than previous “AC” games like “Valhalla” and “Odyssey”, which required dozens of hours with huge open game worlds and diligent tasks. With “Mirage”, developer Ubisoft deliberately goes back to the roots of the series. The focus should therefore no longer be on the typical open-world collection tasks, but on sneaking and killing, which once distinguished the series.
In “Assassin’s Creed: Mirage” players take on the role of the assassin Basim, who practices his assassin trade in Baghdad in the 9th century. The developers are aiming for 15 to 20 hours of playtime – enough time to play through the title before the release of the other blockbuster games in October.
