Shortly after showing the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft announced that the action-adventure game would not be coming to Steam. Previously, the PC version’s digital platforms were unspecified.
On PC, the game is only distributed through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect. There is no mention of Steam on the promotion’s official site. The standard edition costs $50 or €50. In Russia, the pages of the computer version are not available, but the official text translation in Russian has been confirmed.
Whether we are talking about a temporary or permanent exclusivity is not known. It’s possible the game will be covered by a contract with Epic Games, signed before the announcement, when Ubisoft hadn’t yet renewed its relationship with Valve. In this case, the release on the site will most likely occur after some time. As a rule, this happens after six months or a year.
Ubisoft began bringing its games back to Steam in December 2022 after a three-year hiatus, during which time the titles were only offered on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect. The first (December 6, 2022) to hit the platform was Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which was released on November 10, 2020 in the said stores. It was followed by Anno 1800, Roller Champions, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Watch Dogs: Legion and Far Cry 6. Riders Republic, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction and Monopoly Madness are expected in June.
Users reacted negatively to the news. “I predict it will be released on Steam within two to three years – with no achievements, like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla”, wrote some-sort-of-no-name on Reddit (760 votes). Others have noticed that Ubisoft “doesn’t learn from his mistakes”and also pointed out the inferiority of its Steam releases due to the requirement to link a Ubisoft Connect account.
The trailer, shown as part of the PlayStation Showcase, showed gameplay footage and confirmed the release date that had been leaked shortly before – October 12. In the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla spin-off, players learn the story of one of the characters, the thief Basim, who has joined the ancient organization of the Hidden Ones. He will explore Baghdad of the 9th century model, including a visit to the Assassins’ fortress of Alamut.
In terms of gameplay, the game will return to the origins of the series and will focus on the stealth component, parkour, stealth kills and exploring a not too big world. There will be new features such as Assassin’s Focus, which allows you to take out multiple targets on the fly, and Pole Vault, which allows you to move across rooftops more easily. The passage of the campaign takes 15-20 hours.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S.
