Today Ubisoft released a new video of its upcoming Assassin's Creed game Assassin's Creed Mirage, featuring both new gameplay and developer commentary.
We start with parkour, which is designed around verticality and to be easy to learn and hard to master, with many actions returning from past games of the series.
The next core focus showcased in the video is stealth, which includes more ways to approach the assassination of your targets than ever before. Even here, direct throwbacks from the original Assassin's Creed games have been included. The enemy AI has been improved on top of the addition of new enemy archetypes. Social stealth is also returning with the ability to hide in plain sight and among crowds.
Of course, the core mission is assassination, including the ability to take side contracts at various bureaus in Baghdad, including assassinations, rescue missions, and more. Investigating your target plays an important role in this new game.
Interestingly, the developers have implemented a nostalgic visual filter that makes Assassin's Creed Mirage adopt the blue-grey color palette of the first game.
