“We hear you: New Game + mode for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available in a free update this December,” the company said.
“And for the expert Assassins, along with NG+ will come an optional permadeath mode also available across all difficulties!”
A week after its release, Ubisoft said the game was its biggest PS5 and Xbox Series X/S launch to date in terms of unit sales.
Mirage’s development was led by Ubisoft Bordeaux, the studio behind Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Wrath of the Druids expansion.
Billed as a love letter to the original Assassin’s Creed, gameplay is focused on parkour, stealth and assassinations, marking a return to the action-adventure style of games released prior to the more expansive RPG-style series entries Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla.
According to VGC’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage review, the game’s “short, sharp trip through the blood-soaked streets of Baghdad” offers “a welcome return to the series’ roots” and feels like “a breath of fresh air in the endless sea of open world adventure games”.
