A camera glitch has been encountered in Assassin’s Creed Mirage that turns the game into an isometric adventure. The bug was discovered by a player, u/SplashDMG126, who posted a video on the series’ subreddit to showcase how parkouring through 9th-century Baghdad feels with a different camera angle.

As shown in the clip, we can see that the game’s camera functions in an entirely different way from the traditional third-person POVs. Unlike a normal Assassin’s Creed title where the focus is always on the player character, the glitch makes it so that the camera now focuses on a particular scene instead. We can observe Basim moving around in such scenes without having the lens set on him, while the camera zooms in and out during climbs.

While it’s not the same as the normal view in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the glitch offers a certain level of dynamism, adding a sense of space that’s generally absent from third-person games. While an isometric view shares certain similarities with fixed camera angles, the two are vastly different to be put in the same room. It’s a bit unfortunate that the clip doesn’t feature instances of combat, as it would have offered greater insight into how an isometric Assassin’s Creed would really feel.

The majority of the comments resonated with the OP’s sentiment on wanting to play an isometric AC. Users praised the feeling and ambiance delivered by the glitch, with many stating that the angle makes Assassin’s Creed Mirage look like a whole other game. Some users made lighthearted jokes about how Ubisoft wanted AC to return to its roots, which happen to be classic Prince of Persia.
