The story of every big game is always locked until it hits the market, and the story plot revolving around Assassin’s Creed Mirage is heavily coordinated and in key. Ubisoft has been hard at work crafting the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and ahead of the game’s release, the developer is going out of its way to share that same level of secrecy with its fans.
The Assassin’s Creed Twitter account has formally posted that they want players to experience the story of the highly anticipated game for themselves and requested that fans keep spoilers to a minimum. The request is polite, especially with the return to the old format of the older games in the Assassin’s Creed Mirage series.
Ubisoft Tries To Get Ahead of Assassin’s Creed Mirage Spoilers Before Game Launch
The tweet was posted on the official Assassin’s Creed Twitter account, where the team requested, With the launch of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, we request you to refrain from sharing or posting bad things about the game and its story. Please avoid comments that may impact the experiences of others. Thank you! It’s good to see that the team is trying its best to ensure that fans get the best possible experience with a game series that relies heavily on gameplay and narrative storytelling.
Many fans expressed their excitement in the replies, sharing their excitement about returning to the world of Assassin’s Creed and discussing how interesting it would be, especially after the previous three entries. Before Assassin’s Creed Mirage, we have Valhalla, Odyssey, and Origins, which focused heavily on open-world RPG gameplay, with Origins being the first to experiment with this format.
The team was a huge success, although Valhalla was seen as an underwhelming expansion that tired many people out by the end. In contrast, Mirage symbolizes a shorter, more focused journey where the emphasis is on the main story, and less exploration. Focusing on a smaller narrative may be just what the Assassin’s Creed series needs right now. While Valhalla was positively received, the game’s fixed size was cumbersome for many, and Mirage may be the middle ground that Ubisoft needs to win over fans.
However, some critics who have already had the opportunity to preview Assassin’s Creed Mirage believe that the Ubisoft team may have taken too many steps back, which could create obstacles for the series. There are a lot of reservations that perhaps Ubisoft wants to keep things as quiet as possible, but we’ll learn for ourselves when we get our hands on the game on October 5th, 2023.
