Ubisoft is attempting to replicate the idea using haptic feedback in a shirt. Since technology hasn't quite caught up to the Animus virtual reality technology used in the Assassin's Creed series, which allows players to experience the brutal history of the brand. You will experience "sensations" like the main character Basim in Assassin's Creed: Mirage when the game debuts on October 12.

A technologically advanced shirt called the OWO Haptic Gaming System is utilized in some VR settings to provide players with tactile feedback on their bodies that corresponds with actions in a game. Even though Assassin's Creed: Mirage isn't a VR game, Ubisoft is collaborating with the maker to create a shirt with the game's emblem and will be adding haptic functionality to all platforms. The haptic feedback in the shirt, according to the OWO website, will allow you to "feel your precise movements when you take down your targets."

By adjusting the waves associated with the various types of feedback accessible in OWO's sensations library, the haptic feedback shirt enables users to experience true physical sensations. The collection of sensations and experiences ranges from knife wounds, severe stomach wounds, and gunshots with exit wounds to wind, tension, and freefall. That sounds like fun, reports TechSpot.

Similar specifications to those of OWO's Founder Limited Edition haptic feedback shirt are anticipated for the Mirage edition when it ships. Ten haptic sensation sites, 100-ohm high conductivity electrodes, Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and an eight-hour rechargeable USB Type-C battery are all included with the Founder Limited Edition. The Mirage version will also come with extras including an AC-themed Lycra shirt, 20 gel pads, a storage pouch, the OWO gadget, and an Assassin's Creed game code, according to OWO's Assassin's Creed skin page.

The OWO device and My OWO app allow users to personalize their experiences. Every game and user will have a distinct experience thanks to the app's capacity to calibrate and change the sensations and intensities supplied by the skin.

Assassin's Creed Mirage is scheduled for release on October 12 of this year for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Amazon Luna users. The game will also be available to all Ubisoft+ subscribers once released.
