Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be smaller, even if that happens by repeating some statements from 2020

The future of the Assassin’s Creed saga spans a plethora of games in a good list of locations from China to Japan to witch-hunting England. The first of all will be an Assassin’s Creed set in the Middle East under the subtitle Mirage which, against all odds, will be smaller than the previous; Or so they say, once again.

Over the years, the saga of the assassins against the Templars has expanded not only in lore, but in size until reaching mammoth proportions. This has been one of the most important complaints from the community since Assassin’s Creed Origins, so they have taken note and will reduce mapping to focus the adventure on a purely narrative story.

Yes, we will continue to be able to explore the grounds at will, but the GamesRadar medium wanted to confirm with the creative director Stéphane Boudon, if the size reduction only involves hours of history, or the square meters of its playable scenario. “Origins, Odyssey, Valhalla, they’re all great games with the promise to live an epic journey in a strong fantasy Their scopes have been calibrated to meet those ambitions, as they all embrace the mechanics of the role playing games“.

“Among our players, we began to hear the desire for a character driven storycentered on the central pillars of the first AC in a more intimate scale“added the creative. Unlike AC Valhalla or Codename RED, the one set in Japan, Mirage will be an adventure that will put aside the rolera load that has accompanied the last games of the saga.

As a history student, I think The Valiant or A Plague Tale misses the opportunity to exploit the drama of harsh reality.

The enormous economic investment that a game of these proportions implies makes it impossible for this business to stretch to eternity. Reduce the size of the map and “condense the experience around Basim“, translates into less spending for a strategy with a view to filling the gap between the big future releases of the saga.

Still, these words surely fall on deaf ears and it is that the community of the saga has heard these statements more than once. From Odyssey to Valhalla, the Gauls anticipated that the latter would be smaller compared to the previous two. Something that, in terms of hours, involved investing a hundred hours to complete it.
