Assassin’s Creed Mirage length is a departure from recent AC games
Speaking to French YouTuber Julien Chièze (translation via PCGamesN), lead producer Fabian Salomon said that those who rush through the story will be investing about 20 hours into AC Mirage, completionists are looking at anywhere between 25 to 30 hours to 100% the game, and those who sit in between will be spending an average of 20-23 hours swashbuckling in Baghdad.
Ubisoft previously said that it has heard fan requests to return the series to its roots, with a more character-driven and focused adventure. Mirage is a product of that.
“Origins, Odyssey, Valhalla – they are all great games with the promise to live an epic journey in a strong fantasy,” Creative director Stéphane Boudon told GamesRadar back in January. “But amongst our fans, we started hearing the desire for a character driven story, focused on the core pillars of the first ACs in a more intimate scale.”
