Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s New Game Plus Mode Is Out This Week But Permadeath Is Delayed

Requiescat in Pace... forever.

Update: Ubisoft has revealed that its promised New Game Plus update for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be launching this week, allowing players who’ve completed the game to return from the begging with their progression intact and new rewards to be found.

In the same breath, it also revealed that the game’s “permadeath” mode is still being worked on and is now expected to launch via an update in early 2024.

Original Story: Ubisoft Bordeaux has revealed that it’s bringing a major update to this year’s fresh new series entry, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, adding a New Game Plus feature that’ll also include a new “permadeath mode” option across all of the game’s difficulty options.

The update will be free to all players, and is set to launch at some point in December with a firm release date and further details still to come.

Feel more with PS5. Beyond the everyday. Beyond extraordinary. Even beyond imagination. Feel it now.

The post from the official Assassin’s Creed account reads, “We hear you: New Game + mode for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available in a free update this December. And for the expert Assassins, along with NG+ will come an optional permadeath mode also available across all difficulties! More details to come soon.”

We gave Assassin’s Creed Mirage a healthy 8/10 in our review when it launched in early October, saying, “Assassin’s Creed Mirage makes great effort to simplify the Assassin’s Creed formula back to what it was when it first found popularity. The solid stealth mechanics lend themselves well to creating satisfying infiltrations and the open-ended assassinations are some of the series most engaging contracts. It’s just a shame that in scaling so much back, the optional content is lacking and the story ultimately goes nowhere. Still, if you’re here for an experience akin to the original Assassin’s Creed, you’ll find little wrong with Mirage. It’s an endearing callback to what made us fall in love with the franchise over a decade ago, for better or for worse.”
