Our resident Assassin’s Creed expert, Adam Mathew, recently went under the hood of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Hop into the Animus that is this YouTube embed to relive his four-hour memory sequence of that hands-on.

You can also count on Adam’s connoisseur take on the three pillars of stealth, combat, and freerunning, not to mention a direct comparison of Basim’s English and Arabic voiceover options.
