Assassin’s Creed Mirage: 7 Ways To Improve Immersion

In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, there are a number of ways to make the experience more immersive.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in Baghdad in the 9th century. Which is beautiful and might be the best thing about the game. Like in other historical open-world games, players often want to be fully immersed. Mirage does a great job of grounding players with authenticity and reality. But there are things players can do to make the immersion even stronger.

In general, players should turn off things like cluttered HUD elements that tell them they are playing a game. Instead, they should try to play the game as if they were the character living in Mirage’s medieval Arabian world.

Set The Audio Language To Arabic

Changing the sound language to Arabic is one of the best things about Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Because it lets players fully experience the magic of Baghdad in the 9th century. By turning on subtitles, players can relax and feel like they are really in medieval Arabia, listening to sellers talk about their goods in their own language.

It’s not usually possible to do this in even the best open-world Asian games. So it’s a great chance for players to have a truly real experience. The subtitles also have some polite Arabic farewells and greetings, along with an English translation, so players might even learn something.

Turn Off The HUD

Turning off parts of the HUD to clear up the screen is probably the best way to get more into Assassin’s Creed Mirage. While not having a HUD, players can experience the ancient city of Baghdad as if they were really there, rather than just playing a video game.

Of course, the HUD can be useful, and some parts, like the compass and buttons, are more important for the game than others. By changing the settings for the interface, players can fully tailor their experience and hide as much of the HUD as they feel like. In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, players can take beautiful screenshots without any UI if they aren’t ready to turn off their HUDs completely.

Use The Cinematic Camera While Riding

Mirage takes place mostly inside the walls of Baghdad, so mounts aren’t needed. However, there are times when players will need or want to ride a camel or horse into the woods. Player can first choose the follow-road choice and then the cinematic camera to enjoy the desert’s beauty and take it easy on their journey.

When the cinematic camera is turned on, the HUD goes away, giving players a beautiful view of their mount and the landscapes. Players can move the camera around to see what they want without worrying about going off the track because the mount follows the road automatically.

Wear Outfits That Blend In

It’s funny that the Hidden Ones, who would later become the Assassin Brotherhood, aren’t that hidden when they walk around Baghdad in their famous clothes. Luckily, players can change Basim’s clothes to something less obvious, which would help him blend in with the city’s people.

However, players must first unlock new clothes and looks. Once they do, they can check out what other NPCs are wearing and try to blend in. Mirage is lucky because it has a system called “transmog” that lets players change how they look while keeping the best gear’s stats and perks. It will be much more fun to explore and sneak when players don’t stand out like sore thumbs.

Turn Off Enemy Proximity

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a great open-world stealth game. To make the stealth gameplay more realistic and immersive, players can turn off enemy proximity in the menu for interface choices. In practice, this means that enemies won’t be marked in red. Instead, players will have to check corners or use their Eagle to find guard spots.

Not only will turning off enemy closeness make the game more difficult. But it will also look better and more like it did in real life.

Try To Walk When Appropriate

Most open-world games make you run as fast as you can by default. Even though most people don’t do that in real life unless they’re being chased or are late for something. If you were running through Baghdad in the 9th century, people might look at you funny. To get into Flappy Bird more, players can try walking to blend in better.

Of course, most of the time, players will want to use the series’ famous parkour to fly along the roofs. If they are going to buy something from a store, on the other hand, they should walk instead of run when they are close. A stealth task would be more realistic if you walked instead of ran before it. An assassin wouldn’t want to draw attention to themselves.

Use Immersive Mods

It has been shown time and time again that downloading mods that make a game more engaging is a good way to get more into it. UI and HUD mods, reshades that make landscapes look more real and beautiful, and mods that get rid of effects that aren’t needed or make sense are just a few of the types of mods that can make immersion stronger.

Of course, more mods for Assassin’s Creed Mirage will come out over time. So there will always be new ways to get really into the game.
