Assassin's Creed Mirage Gets New Game Plus Next Week, but Permadeath Mode Delayed to 2024

It’s good news and bad news for Assassin’s Creed Mirage. First, the bad news: the permadeath mode Ubisoft had said would come out in December is delayed to early 2024.

Now, the good news: Mirage’s New Game Plus mode comes out next week, Ubisoft announced in a post on X/Twitter.

Assassin's Creed Mirage came out in October and, soon after, Ubisoft revealed its launch was "in line" with that of previous entries in the series, Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey.

IGN’s Assassin's Creed Mirage review returned an 8/10. 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."

New Game Plus for Assassin’s Creed Mirage lets you dive back into Basim’s journey with your current progression and new rewards. Ubisoft has yet to detail the permadeath mode, but we do know it will be available across all difficulties.

In October, Ubisoft's long-awaited Japanese Assassin's Creed game, codenamed Assassin's Creed Red, seemingly had its protagonist leaked by a developer. An image revealed what appeared to be a female assassin wielding a katana against a red background, which features the Japanese Assassin's Creed logo and a pagoda.

Set in feudal Japan, Assassin's Creed Red was revealed in September 2022 as Ubisoft's "next premium flagship title and the future of our open-world RPG games", suggesting it will be closer in style to Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Odyssey than Mirage. A brief concept trailer showed an assassin jumping onto a roof during the sunset.
