Ubisoft Forward 2022 takes place this Saturday, but the first details of the next major Assassin’s Creed title have already leaked. Thanks to Tom Henderson on Twitter, we’ve got the official PSN listing description from Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The listing describes gameplay features, as well as some small hints on the plot.
If you want a surprise on Saturday, it’s time to stop reading now! Otherwise, read ahead for the leak.
The official leaked description is as follows:
Experience the story of Basim, a cunning street thief seeking answers and justice as he navigates the bustling streets of ninth-century Baghdad. Through a mysterious, ancient organization known as the Hidden Ones, he will become a deadly Master Assassin and change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.
– Experience a modern take on the iconic features and gameplay that have defined a franchise for 15 years.
– Parkour seamlessly through the city and stealthily take down targets with more visceral assassinations than ever before.
– Explore an incredibly dense and vibrant city whose inhabitants react to your every move, and uncover the secrets of four unique districts as you venture through the Golden Age of Baghdad.
If you already own the PS4™ version of this game, you can get the PS5™ digital version at no extra cost and you do not need to purchase this product. Owners of a PS4™ disc copy must insert it into the PS5™ every time they want to download or play the PS5™ digital version. PS4™ game disc owners who buy the PS5™ Digital Edition disc-free console will not be able to get the PS5™ version at no extra cost.
Earlier rumours suggested the game will be a return to the roots of the franchise, and that’s made pretty clear here. Parkour, stealth and assassinations were the fundamentals of the original, and renewed focus on these may perhaps result in fans of the older titles coming back to the series.
As well as Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft are also set to reveal part of their Assassin’s Creed Infinity live service title at Ubisoft Forward. This is according to early reports from Jason Schreier and other games journalists. You can read more on what to expect this Saturday on our Ubisoft Forward page.
