Publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Bordeaux just announced that they will release Assassin’s Creed Mirage for iPhone 15 Pro early next year.
The game is reported to run natively on the hardware via the smartphone’s new A17 Pro Chip. Here’s what Apple has to say regarding their latest piece of hardware:
Bringing pro performance and capabilities, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are powered by A17 Pro, the industry’s first 3-nanometer chip.
Continuing Apple’s leadership in smartphone silicon, A17 Pro brings improvements to the entire chip, including the biggest GPU redesign in Apple’s history. The new CPU is up to 10 percent faster with microarchitectural and design improvements, and the Neural Engine is now up to 2x faster, powering features like autocorrect and Personal Voice in iOS 17.
The pro-class GPU is up to 20 percent faster and unlocks entirely new experiences, featuring a new 6-core design that increases peak performance and energy efficiency. Now with hardware-accelerated ray tracing—which is 4x faster than software-based ray tracing—iPhone 15 Pro offers smoother graphics, as well as more immersive AR applications and gaming experiences.
iPhone 15 Pro brings true-to-life gaming to the palm of users’ hands with console titles never before seen on a smartphone.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is will be releasing for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on October 5. For those wondering about the game, check out our first impressions for Assassin’s Creed Mirage:
Origins, Odyssey, and Vahalla were massive departures from the well-established AC formula, for better and worse. They all gave sprawling RPG experiences filled with tons of things to do in beautiful and expansive sandboxes. However, it did create a discussion as to whether or not they should still be considered an Assassin’s Creed game. Assassin’s Creed Mirage feels like a direct response to fans clamoring for a more traditional experience. One that respects franchise roots while also integrating modern-day game development standards. As an Assassin’s Creed fan who likes both the classics and the RPG titles, I can confidently say that I haven’t been this excited about an AC release since Black Flag.
