Assassin’s Creed Mirage Update 1.04 Released, Fixes Cinematics and Receives Mixed Reception.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage has received its latest post-launch patch with version 1.04, aiming to resolve issues like cinematic bugs based on community feedback. However, the update has seen mixed reactions from players regarding its impact.
This new AC Mirage patch focuses narrowly on fixes rather than gameplay changes. Chiefly, it addresses problems with cinematics not playing properly, though seemingly only for console versions rather than PC. The full patch notes can be found on the official Ubisoft website.
|Xbox Series X/S||5.44 GB|
|Xbox One||4.04 GB|
|PC (TU 1.0.2)||0 GB (41.6 GB with TU 1.0.2 included)|
The notes otherwise contain no mention of new content, extensive bug resolution, or performance improvements. At 3.5GB, some expected more substantial tweaks.
Doesn’t Address Previous Visual Complaints Yet
Nonetheless, fans report the patch has helped console performance in certain respects. But others cite worse frame rates and increased screen tearing, particularly on PS5. So perceptions are divided.
Additionally, the update does not tackle previous complaints about aggressive chromatic aberration and motion blur effects harming the title’s visuals. Though Ubisoft says a toggle to disable chromatic aberration is slated for the future.
After two previous broader patches, Update 1.04’s narrow focus and mixed reception is somewhat underwhelming. But it exemplifies the iterative process of tweaking complex new AAA games based on masses of variable user feedback.
Some fans will inevitably be disappointed when eagerly awaited changes or additions don’t materialise in each new patch. But Ubisoft seems committed to incrementally smoothing out Mirage’s rough edges over time.
The mixed perceptions surrounding Update 1.04 don’t necessarily indicate developmental shortcomings. Rather, it shows the challenges of satisfying every user’s priorities amidst release turbulence. Managing expectations remains key.

With fan feedback helping guide the path beyond launch, Ubisoft seeks to refine Mirage into its optimal form through ongoing collaboration. Despite frustrations, this latest entry in the series should continue improving through attentive upkeep.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is currently accessible on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, with an anticipated release for iPhone 15 Pro in early 2024.
