Here’s a rundown on the game, via Torn Banner:
In Mirage: Arcane Warfare, the calm of a strange fantasy world is shattered by ruthless civil war. Warriors armed with steel and magic bring violence and death as they do battle across a fantastical Arabian and Persian-inspired setting of desert sands, market bazaars and grand palaces.
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.
- A NEW COMBAT SYSTEM TO MASTER
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.
