It will take up to 20 hours to beat the main story in Assassin's Creed Mirage according to the latest leaks

It will take you around 17 to 20 hours to beat the story in Assassin's Creed Mirage according to leaks. The scope of the game seems to be significantly smaller than the previous Assassin's Creed titles, which is a good thing. 

Rumours suggest that the upcoming Assassin's Creed Mirage is taking the franchise back to its roots with stealth-focused gameplay , a smaller but denser open world and a shorter story. Oh, and no those pesky RPG mechanics.  

Apparently, after three gargantuan Assassin's Creed games in Origins , Odyssey and Valhalla , Ubisoft have decided to scale down new games, which is something that the fans of this action-adventure series have been asking for over the last several years.

Assassin's Creed Mirage appears to be the game that will kick off the new, Assassin's Creed Infinity era, with a story that will be only 17 to 20 hours long.

That's according to the leaker who previously revealed correct info about Skull and Bones and other Ubisoft games. Since this is yet to be officially confirmed, take it with a grain of salt, just like any other leak or rumour. 

That being said, it certainly would not surprise us if Mirage is indeed a 20-hour game. We have already learned that the game will be smaller than its predecessors so it's entirely possible that the story is only one-third of Valhalla's story length. 

Assassin's Creed Unity and Syndicate are the last two Assassin's Creed games that had a story that had a run time below the 20-hour mark.

All in all, that's plenty of good news regarding Mirage but until we get to see and ultimately play the game, we won't get too excited since Ubisoft let us down too many times. 

Hopefully, the publisher learned their mistakes with previous titles so Mirage can become that love letter to the hardcore fans of this, now iconic IP.

Assassin's Creed Mirage is set to be announced at Ubisoft Forward for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
