Mobile gaming is gaining traction, first with Resident's launch on Apple's latest device, and now Ubisoft announces the release of Assassin's Creed Mirage for iPhone 15 Pro, Pro Max, and iPad Air 10 and Pro with M1 chips in early June 2024. Pre-orders are already open. For the first time, gamers will get the full console version, not a simplified one, thanks to new technologies.

The Mirage port was developed by Ubisoft Sofia's team. They promise optimized touch controls and controller support. The game will be fully localized into other languages. The price is $50, but there will be a 90-minute free trial. Additional content is purchased separately.

Powerful processors in new iPhones and iPads allow demanding AAA projects to run. Previously, smartphones were considered too weak for major games. 2024 will show how audiences react to new titles, and if successful, a new era of mobile gaming will begin.

The main advantage of smartphone gaming is portability. Favorite games can be played anywhere, untethered from stationary consoles and PCs. For publishers, it's a plus in reaching new audiences and an additional revenue stream, but also increased competition for indie studios.
