Within the bounds of a good ol’ Reddit AMA, Ubisoft has seemingly confirmed that it has no designs to produce post-launch DLC or major content updates for its upcoming stealth-focused series entry, Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Answering a question geared more towards the potential for post-launch updates to introduce some features the community are interested in seeing, the game’s Director, Stephane Boudon, responded with a very straightforward, “For now, Mirage has no plan for DLC or extensive post-launch.”
It’s a somewhat refreshing concept, given the already-bloated recent Assassin’s Creed titles that continued to grow even more impossibly large with major DLC expansions and constant streams of added cosmetic content. It remains to be seen what piecemeal, microtransaction-esque bits and bobs Ubisoft might have up its sleeve for the game, but it seems like full-on expansions or major mode additions could be out of the question at the very least.
One post-launch update that’s become a staple in recent Assassin’s Creed games is the Discovery Tour, which this time around is already a part of the game in a slightly different format with the History of Baghdad feature, giving players the opportunity to learn more about the game’s setting through real-world historical pieces inserted as collectibles across the map. You can read more about that right here.
In our recent preview of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, we said we “expect Mirage to feel like a warm blanket for those who’ve really missed what the early games brought to the table. If the camel mounts and roaming donkeys in the street are anything to go by, I do expect this Baghdad to feel like a kind of homecoming for the creed.”
