Original news (November 16)

Ubisoft informed about the new features coming to Assassin's Creed: Mirage in December update.

  1. First of all Assassin's Creed: Mirage will finally get a New Game Plus mode, in which we will be able to replay the campaign without losing unlocked abilities.
  2. In addition, a permadeath mode will be added, in which each death will force us to start the game all over again. This option is to be available on all difficulty levels.
  3. In the comments under the patch announcement, players are mostly pleased with the upcoming changes. Many people raise the issues that the New Game Plus mode would also be very useful in the previous installment of the series, i.e. Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. For fans, this is a touchy subject, because initially there were plans to introduce a New Game+ option there, but eventually this idea was abandone .
  4. It is worth recalling that AC Origins and AC Odyssey offered New Game Plus mode, and now they will be joined by Mirage. So it seems that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will remain an unfortunate exception in which such an option was missing.

Assassin's Creed: Mirage debuted on October 5, this year on PC, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

The game was received quite warmly - on OpenCritic the average rating is 76%, although there is no shortage of more critical voices among them (this includes our editor).

On the PC, the game was not free of bugs. Players complained about the lack of support for DLSS, but this was fixed by a modder known as LukeFZ, creating the project DLSS Frame Generation for Mirage. In turn, the option to disable the pesky chromatic aberration effect was added by Ubisoft itself in the recent update 1.0.5.
