Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to buck series and industry trends, ditching both DLC and microtransactions in a cool retro throwback to the way we used to play video games. This is according to creative director Stephen Bowden, who recently answered the questions of some curious fans Ask me anything Post on Reddit.
Bowden stated that “for now, Mirage has no plans for DLC or extensive post-launch”, other than addressing player concerns over various aspects of the game, such as parkour, difficulty and accessibility. It’s pretty load-bearing “for now,” it must be said, but we’re willing to give Bowden the benefit of the doubt.
Microtransactions are a well-worn area right now, and we don’t imagine many will be sad to see them go. As for DLC and expansions, things really got out of hand with Valhalla, which featured expansions the size of previous games in the series. Perhaps we’re seeing a rare display of restraint from Ubisoft regarding content, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
