As the leaves turn golden and the air gets crisper, GeForce NOW is ensuring that gamers have plenty to warm up to this October. In a move set to excite the cloud gaming community, NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW has unveiled its stellar October lineup. With nearly 60 new game titles joining the platform, the month promises a mix of fresh experiences and nostalgic journeys. From the shadowy alleys of Assassin’s Creed Mirage to the adrenaline-fueled tracks of Forza Motorsport, there’s a rich tapestry of gaming adventures awaiting. Whether you’re a casual player or a dedicated enthusiast, this update has something for everyone.

Assassins Creed Mirage

Ubisoft is known for its rich storytelling and immersive worlds, and with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, they’re revisiting the series’ well-loved roots. Set in the bustling streets of ninth-century Baghdad, players will step into the shoes of Basim Ibn Is’haq, a 17-year-old street thief. As Basim, players will learn the art of the assassins, mastering parkour across rooftops, scaling tall towers, and uncovering a conspiracy that not only threatens the historic city but also determines Basim’s destiny.

Mirage isn’t just another installment; it’s an homage to the original Assassin’s Creed games. It promises to bring back the thrill of stealth, the challenge of combat, and the joy of exploring a historically accurate open world. For long-time fans of the series, it’s a trip down memory lane. For newcomers, it’s an opportunity to experience what made Assassin’s Creed a global phenomenon.

However, it’s worth noting that not all reactions to Assassin’s Creed Mirage have been glowing. Since its release, the game has garnered middling reviews from some critics and players. A common sentiment echoed is that while Mirage is undoubtedly polished and offers the signature Assassin’s Creed experience, it doesn’t necessarily break new ground. For some, it’s a comfortable return to familiar territory, but others have expressed a desire for more innovation within the series. As with any title, the true verdict lies in the hands of the players. Whether you see it as a nostalgic nod or crave something new, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is undeniably a significant addition to the GeForce NOW lineup this October.
