Assassin’s Creed Mirage revealed nostalgic Blue filter to its gameplay in a recent behind-the-scenes video on Ubisoft’s official YouTube channel.
Creative director Stéphane Boudon showcased a new nostalgic blue filter, aiming to recreate the roots of the franchise.
Mirage, described as a “love letter to the origins of the franchise,” promises to be a coming-of-age story, intertwining rhythm mechanics with the essence of the early Assassin’s Creed games.
By adopting a stealth-focused approach, the title diverges from the expansive open-world experiences of recent installments like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
During the video, Boudon expressed his awareness of the community’s immense excitement, adding, “We also have a nice surprise for our long-timers.”
Assassin’s Creed Mirage team has included a special visual filter, allowing players to explore the game world through the desaturated blue-grey color palette reminiscent of the first Assassin’s Creed game.
Set in 9th-century Baghdad, Assassin’s Creed Mirage serves as a remarkable tribute to the franchise’s inaugural release.
Initially announced last year, the game has generated substantial anticipation. Fans were treated to glimpse the gameplay last month, and the official release date has been confirmed for October 12.
Ubisoft has scheduled the upcoming Ubisoft Forward showcase to feature Assassin’s Creed Mirage prominently on June 12.
Times for the Ubisoft Forward Showcase is 10 am PT / 1 pm ET / 6 pm BST.
The event will provide an in-depth look at the game. And also include other exciting titles such as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and The Crew: Motorfest.
Interestingly, Ubisoft recently unveiled a new 2.5D Prince of Persia game. However, early reactions suggest a predominantly negative response to this announcement.
