Mirage is a skill-based multiplayer FPS that lets you tear your enemies limb from limb with destructive magic and melee combat. Experiment and find your perfect playstyle between six diverse classes including stealthy assassins, hulking brutes, powerful mages and more. With an unparalleled focus on truly feeling in control of your magic and sword, Mirage demands combat creativity and will challenge you like never before.
From the creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare comes a new competitive multiplayer FPS about steel and spells. Exchange-based combat expands from close quarters melee to ranged magic attacks, providing an endless variety of tactical choices, yet instant fun and familiarity for FPS fans.
Mirage captures the true, destructive power of magic and melee combat with the tight control of a first-person shooter. The intuitive combat system demands time and patience to master with skill-based, competitive gameplay that feels like a sword fight from 20 feet away.
Mirage’s gameplay crosses the intersection between close quarters and ranged combat. Block any attack – ranged or melee – in bloody combat where you can feel the shock of every blow. Experience the thrill of fantastic battles with an ultra-satisfying, dynamic gore system as limbs fly, blood gushes and heads are dismembered in cathartic, joyful destruction.

Player choice is everything. With options for every playstyle, battle in a variety of team-based multiplayer modes and harness six diverse character classes with a selection of combat loadouts.
Express yourself with hundreds of voice commands and explore the unique personalities of a colourful cast of characters.
Find the battlefield of your choice with a new matchmaking system or classic server browser, then make an entrance with customization options to help your warrior stand out.
Mirage: Arcane Warfare "PC Gaming Show" Gameplay Trailer
The steep learning curve paired with the limited tutorial, lack of any significant matchmaking options and the currently low player count make it hard to recommend Mirage: Arcane Warfare to anyone who isn't already a fan of their previous game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. There's a lot of room to improve, though.
It is sad to say that this game will probably never reach the levels of popularity of both its predecessor and modern genre counterparts because the player count is at a currently super low despite the fact the it only recently launched. I encourage people interested in the game to pick it up, as Mirage: Arcane Warfare is really fun and would benefit from having many more players. Just be aware that if the game's community doesn't grow soon, its severs could be barren by the end of the year, if not in the next few months.
