For those looking to spend more time with Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s Basim as he hops and knives his way through Baghdad, I have good news. There is a New Game Plus mode coming as part of a free update.
In addition, developer Ubisoft is also going to introduce an optional permadeath mode to the game. This new challenge will be available across all difficulty levels, the studio has said.
Other than that, details are still quite thin on the ground. The Mirage team is yet to go into more about what either new mode will actually involve, but we do know that it will all be coming next month.
That being said, the developer has promised more details will be released “soon”, so stay tuned. We will, as always, keep you updated as soon as we hear more.
We hear you: New Game + mode for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available in a free update this December.

“Through the warmth of familiar rituals returning after those bigger, rangier [Assassin’s Creed] games, I get to see what’s really special about this series, what it takes to create, perhaps, and what it can give us in return,” he wrote.
