Assassin's Creed Mirage will reportedly feature a wanted level similar to the one in Red Dead Redemption 2

Assassin's Creed Mirage developers are reportedly taking inspiration from Red Dead Redemption 2's wanted level and camp systems.

Assassin's Creed Mirage could feature a wanted-level system similar to the one in Red Dead Redemption 2 . The game is also set to feature an "Assassin Camp" feature, another mechanic that can be found in Rockstar Games ' western. 

The information comes from a leaker who accurately revealed details about Assassin's Creed Mirage before the official announcements. The leaker also accurately predicted the delays of Forspoken and Hogwarts Legacy among other things. 

In case you're not familiar with how Red Dead Redemption 2's wanted system works, here's a quick rundown. Basically, if you commit a crime that is witnessed by someone, that witness will run to the police to report it. Players can kill the witness or bribe them before they report the crime. This way, the bounty won't be issued. 

If the witness reports the crime, the law will then try to arrest you.  You can flee the crime scene and wait for the wanted level to disappear but your crime will not be forgotten. The law will remember you and will try to take you down the next time they see you.

It's a great wanted system, to be honest, and it could be a perfect fit for a smaller, more focused Assassin's Creed game like Mirage. Imagine having to be extra careful with the guards, planning your every move instead of simply brute forcing your way to the target like we did in previous Assassin's Creed games.

Ubisoft Assassin's Creed Mirage will be akin to traditional Assassin's Creed games with dense cities, smaller open world and focus on assassinations Assassin's Creed Mirage will reportedly be much harder than previous Assassin's Creed games.

As for the Assassin camp system, the leaker says it's similar to Red Dead Redemption and Assassin's Creed Valhalla . You'll be able to train and rest there, apparently. We assume the camps are a copy of Valhalla's settlement system, but on a smaller scope. 

All in all, Assassin's Creed Mirage sounds pretty exciting and we cannot wait to see the first gameplay that should be coming in the next couple of months. Though, we have to say that these are just leaks and rumours at this point, so definitely don't take the info as gospel, given that things often change during the development. 

Assassin's Creed Mirage is set to launch sometime in Spring 2023.
