Assassin’s Creed has been a massive part of gaming in the past 15 years, and they are still coming out with new ideas today. Yes, the newer games might not be what the older fans want, but they are pretty solid when you look at the content they give you.
A few weeks before we made this video, Ubisoft had its Livestream that showed off the future of Assassins Creed, which looks pretty good from what we were shown. It showed off future projects, including one that takes place in feudal Japan, which was something fans have been asking for for years.
They are also releasing an Assassins Creed game that is taking place in Germany, and it is supposedly about witches. The most interesting part of the showcase for us is what this video is about, Assassins Creed Mirage.
The game was said to be bringing back the roots of the series. People are also saying that it is taking a ton of inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed game, which has a lot of people, including us, extremely excited about the release.
If they are returning to the series’ roots, then there are a bunch of things we hope to see in the game when it releases. Here are eight things we need and hope for in Assassins Creed Mirage.
8. A robust weapon system
Weapon systems in the previous games have always been hit or miss. We want to see the weapon system that Assassin’s Creed Unity had. There are many different weapons to use, and each would give you a different experience when in combat.
It also had an insanely good equipment system that allowed you to customize your character however you liked. It wasn’t just the weapons we enjoyed having variety, but the gear you could equip. There were so many different outfits with bonuses that you could collect and equip, which made for a very satisfying system.
All Mirage needs is a system as robust as the Unities’ weapon and gear system while also feeling unique. It definitely will be difficult to determine what type of systems they will put into the game, but let’s hope they do a good job with them
7. A multiplayer mode that will last
One major part of the Assassins Creed series that we were never really a part of was the multiplayer modes. Not only did a ton of people play them, but they were considered some of the best multiplayer games of the past decade.
People enjoyed the multiplayer modes in both Assassins Creed Brotherhood and Assassins Creed 3, and there hasn’t been another resurgence since then. Mirage needs a mode to keep the game alive until the next Assassin’s Creed game comes out.
It doesn’t matter if it is simple or complicated; it needs to keep people’s attention for hours and let them experience the world of Assassins Creed with their friends. That is what kept Unity alive for soo long; why not just improve on everything the other games did so well?
6. A smaller but fuller world
Our main issue with the past three games in the series is how large the worlds are. They tried to make the games bigger than the previous entries, and they tried to make the worlds bigger than most other triple-A games.
Because of this reason, they didn’t have the time to put as many details into the world since it is soo stretched out. Mirage needs to be a lot smaller, which the game is confirmed to be, so Unisoft can develop the areas and make it feel full.
There needs to be a good reason to explore, not just being more Ubisoft bloat they place in every single one of their games. We hope they make it to where you want to explore to find all types of secrets, so it keeps you interested the whole time you are playing.
5. A memorable soundtrack
The soundtracks of the games can actually determine the tone of the game. If you have played Revalations or even AC3, then you will know what we mean by that. If a game doesn’t have a great soundtrack, it takes away from the experience.
AC Syndicate was one of those games that didn’t have a good soundtrack, which is one reason why we didn’t enjoy it that much. It also needs to fit the culture since it does take place in Baghdad.
We hope that Ubisoft takes inspiration from the best soundtracks in the series and incorporates that into the OST. If they don’t, the game will feel dull, at least to us.
4. A satisfying combat system
This goes hand in hand with the weapon system that we mentioned earlier. It goes deeper than having a good weapon system with all the combat mechanics in the game. If you have a great weapon system without a good mechanical combat system, then there is no point in it at all.
It will be a great system if they take inspiration from the older AC games and sprinkle a bit of the newer AC game mechanics. The main thing we want to see in Mirage is dismemberment.
Not only was this a great addition to Valhalla, but it needs to be added to every upcoming AC game in the future. It makes the combat feel that much better than other titles.
3. A focus on parkour and traversal
The parkour and traversal are some of the most important parts of the series that need to come back. Not only has parkour been dumped down in the past few entries, but it hasn’t been the focus. With the game returning to its roots, we hope they add even more mechanics when it comes to traversal.
There needs to be a lot of corridors, buildings, towers, hay bales, and much more that the older games had, so we definitely hope for more of that in Mirage. It would be great to see Unities parkour make a comeback since it did have some of the most satisfying parkour in any Assassins Creed game.
2. A bigger emphasis on stealth
Stealth is another huge part of the whole Assassin’s Creed universe. Whether you are tailing somebody or taking out enemies silently, there are so many ways you can do stealth in the older games. Yes, the newer AC games have stealth, but it doesn’t feel as satisfying as the older games.
We hope that there are a ton of assassinations that you can complete besides the main story so that there are other ways to enjoy the game. We hope they put a bigger emphasis on stealth in this game, so it is about you becoming an Assassin.
1. A shorter but satisfying story
The story is the most important thing they need to get right in this game. They are saying it is a linear story experience and more focused on the story than other AC games in the past. The newer RPG AC games are focused on the story, but there is soo much to do outside the story that you will probably forget about the story while doing other things.
Mirage needs a great narrative that gets you attached to these characters. If they don’t, then the game isn’t going to sell very well. If the story is anything like the first game or even Revalations, then they will make a lot of Assassins Creed fans happy.
