With about 12 main games in total since 2007, Assassin’s creed has been the one of the greatest open-world action adventure stealth games in the world. Since its inception we have seen the concept get evolved with every game, the latest one being “Valhalla’, where The makers made many new changes to reintroduce the game to the die-hard fans.
The Journey of assassin’s creed had begun from being a game that used social stealth mechanic, where the third-person character used to hide in the darkness and dungeons of the city and used parkour to move around and collect weapons and kill his enemies in way stealth manner. This concept was slowly and steadily changed by the developers by introducing more visibility, more rogue actions in the open, less diplomacy and more violence, accessibility to more weapons and expanded maps. It soon became a role playing game than a stealth game.
Games like Odyssey, Valhalla , Ezio Trilogy, Revelations, Brotherhood, all had quit the old social stealth mechanics and made their characters hide in plain sight using the crowd as an element. The main characters could be more action oriented than just hiding and waiting for opportunities. Over the years the gameplay became more active than passive. The fans liked it initially but according to many, the old touch was missing
Assassin’s Creed: Mirage

The Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been set up in the 9th Century Baghdad. Here, the time period begins in the year 861 which is also named as the Golden Age, this happens just a few decades before the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla took place in the open world. According to the makers, at this time Baghdad was predominantly at the centre of the world, and was apparently considered to be a key place for knowledge, art, innovation, science, commerce, and power which has been utilised in the game.
In this game, Baghdad has been divided into 4 unique districts including an industrial area known as Karhk and a lush green on known as Round city. The developers have promised that they are determined to create and dense and bustling city where all the inhabitants will react to every move. This time, they have also come up with the Alamut, which is known to house the assassins who put down the creed. This will be the first time this fortress is going get a full feature. Another big development that is doing the rounds is that Mirage’s open world is going to be much smaller than its predecessors
In simple words, stealth is going to be the focus in this action open world game’s latest version. Ubisoft has reworked its whole idea and come up with detection systems which allow more granularity. They have restructured the city and the rooftops of the buildings to support stealth approaches and quick parkour. This time they are digging their character to make hidden attempts, identifying danger, hunting down his enemies, eliminating a target and then vanishing away. The idea is to bring back stealth gaming and make it cool again. Something their users have been missing since a long time now.
These are some cool additions they have made to their latest games and the teasers look fantastic! It is already garnering rave reviews and may turn out to be a huge seller post its release.
