Event Log: Assassin's Creed Mirage Red Carpet Digital Event
Just before the launch of Assassin's Creed Mirage, we were invited to attend an online event exclusively for community members. The event was unlike any other we have ever attended, and featured a mini game where everyone controlled a 'chibi-style' Basim. All players had a username attached, and when you approached audio and video would appear for those interacting nearby.
Dotted around the cartoon mini map of Baghdad were also members of the Development team, who players could ask questions of before the game launched. It was a really unique experience, that also contained rewards. By clicking on items of importance around the map, such as Basim's armour or weapons, videos and concept art would reveal itself, all of which was shared with players after the event in the form of an assets pack.
After some time interacting with developers and community members, players were invited to join a mini game which involved removing Basim's notoriety status. Wanted posters appeared around the map, featuring different colours which represented the various different teams. When Basim's notoriety had been reset, players met up at the Palace of the Green Dome. Here, host Clement Dagonneau announced that the Red Carpet event would soon be ending, and that a one hour play session for Assassin's Creed Mirage would be starting immediately.
According to fellow Assassin's Creed Fan Community, Access the Animus, participants tested the ''Andromeda online platform''. It featured an ''isometric chibi version of Baghdad where players can wander around with a Basim avatar.''
The Red Carpet event was a fun and interesting way for community members to learn about the game, with many in the Discord server requesting Ubisoft to host the platform permanently. Top marks to all involved for their creativity. Big thank you to the Assassin's Creed Community Team for inviting us!
