Assassin’s Creed Mirage gets a new gameplay trailer, October release date

Assassin’s Creed Mirage got a new gameplay trailer during today’s PlayStation Showcase. Ubisoft’s next open-world game will launch on October 12, and preorders for the upcoming game are now open.

Assassin's Creed Mirage Official Gameplay Trailer

We previously saw a glimpse of the game during a Ubisoft showcase last year. It’s the next mainline installment of the series, though several spinoff games are currently in development alongside it. We now know when it’ll launch and exactly what it’ll look like.

The trailer didn’t include too many surprises — it looks like a traditional Assassin’s Creed game. The clip showed its hero, Basim, jumping around ancient 19th-century Baghdad. We saw some of the usual gameplay beats we’ve come to expect from the series, as he parkours around buildings and stabs enemies. As always, the main character is able to pickpocket, hide on benches in plain sight, sneak across tightropes, and parkour.

Basim was previously revealed to Assassin’s Creed fans in the previous entry, Assassin’s Creed ValhallaMirage, however, gives us a glimpse at his life before those events ever occurred.

While the new preview isn’t mind-blowing, it does show that this latest entry in the franchise seems to be going back to the days of early Assassin’s Creed. It makes stealth one of the main focuses of the game, while mixing it with the open-world exploration of more modern entries. Even the movement and smaller moments of the trailer, such as the parkouring across rooftops, cause Ezio and Altair to jump to mind.

Assassins Creed Mirage launches on October 12 for PlayStation4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gets wild gameplay trailer, but no release date
Kraven the Hunter appears in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games showed off a new gameplay trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during Sony's May 2023 PlayStation Showcase. The action-packed clip showed off its villain, the iconic Kraven the Hunter, but it didn't give the game a release date. It's still only scheduled for fall 2023.

The new trailer gave us our closest glimpse at Sony's upcoming release we've seen yet. It begins with a very cinematic clip showing off classic Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter. From there, we flash-forward a bit to New York City, where we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together to save the city. Parker has a fancy new black suit with a lot of wild powers. In the trailer, we see multiple black spider arms coming out of it and slamming enemies.

While the world's zombie obsession isn't as prevalent as it was a few years ago, we're still set to see some serious undead action in the future. Undead Labs has a third entry in its State of Decay series in the works that will surely pit an eclectic cast of survivors against hordes of wandering undead as they try to rebuild in a brutal world. Each entry of the series so far has included action-adventure, survival-horror, stealth, role-playing, and strategy elements, blending genres into an interesting civilization-rebuilding, zombie-decapitating experience.

Pikmin 4 release date

When compared to Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and even Metroid, the Pikmin series was never a runaway success, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo from developing new installments. And we're glad, because the Pikmin series is full of wit, charm, and originality. During the September 2022 Direct, Nintendo finally unveiled the next entry, aptly titled Pikmin 4.

This announcement came nearly a decade after the previous entry, and although we don't know much about it, we're excited it's happening. The latest installment of the oddball strategy series is bringing some new features, including a brand new Pikmin type and an adorable dog companion. Positioned as the Switch's big summer 2023 release, it has the chance to get more eyes on the series than ever before.
