Breaking News: Ubisoft reveal sneak-peak at Ubisoft Forward 2023 line-up
Ubisoft has spent the last week giving fans a sneak-peak at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward showcase event by sharing promotional images and videos of upcoming Assassin's Creed projects to build anticipation for the event.
New images and teasers for Assassin's Creed: Mirage, Nexus and Jade have been shared, and we can't wait to cover all three in full when more information drops at Ubisoft Forward and beyond!
Assassin's Creed Mirage
Learn more about Assassin's Creed Mirage Friday June 9th, when episode one of a special three-part video series dedicated to the game's development releases.
Screenshots from the promo video
Here we see an underground staircase for Basim to use in a resticted area. This may be one of the ways in which players can achieve a non-confrontational mission playthrough, which stealthily brings him to his target area without being detected.
Next up we see a new piece of concept art for Assassn's Creed Mirage showing two Assassins freerunning around Baghdad. Notice the similarities between the robes worn here and the Levantine Brotherhood in Assassin's Creed (2007).
Here we see another piece of concept art, this time showing a masked figure hiding from a guard in a poor area of Baghdad. Could this be Basim in disguise making his way through a slum?
Although poor quality due to being a recording of a monitor, we can briefly see tree parkour in action. Basim jumps from a wooden plank and onto a tree branch.
Here we see a 3D render of an Assassin, likely Basim produced during the development stages of Assassin's Creed Mirage. On the left you can see another screen showing an Assassin wearing a hidden blade / vambrace gauntlet.
The next shot is a sketch showing a diagram of a rope lift, something which first appeared in the Ezio games. It's great to see this mechanic return in Mirage as it is a quick and easy way to access rooftops.
On the left, you can see the new Pole Vault mechanic, which allows Basim to jump across buildings.
Here we see the pole vault in action, as demonstrated in the Assassin's Creed gameplay trailer.
Towards the end of the video we see social stealth in action! In a return to its roots, Assassin's Creed Mirage is set to fully reimagine stealth, starting with blending. Hide in plain sight. A blade in the crowd. This is an essential part of being an Assassin. Using your surroundings to mask your appearance. The outline around the NPC's shows that they are unaware of Basim's presence, and also means that enemies will not notice his approach.
Assassin's Creed Mirage will be unveiled in full at #UbiForward, on 12th June, 6PM BST.
