“We hear you: New Game+ mode for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available in a free update this December,” Assassin’s Creed’s account wrote. “And for the expert Assassins, along with NG+ will come an optional permadeath mode also available across all difficulties! More details to come soon.”
Assassin’s Creed Mirage was released in October and Ubisoft revealed its launch was “in line” with previous entries in the series like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey. Perhaps most importantly, it also revealed 1.2 million street cats had been pet in-game.
In our Assassin’s Creed Mirage review, we said its “return to the stealthy style that launched this series doesn’t do everything right, but everything it does feels like it was done with purpose.” Additionally, we’d “recommend Mirage to anyone who’s lapsed on Assassin’s Creed, as its back-to-basics approach is a successful first step in returning the feeling that the earlier industry-defining games gave me so long ago.”
