Assassin’s Creed Mirage has finally been officially unveiled by Ubisoft. The full reveal of the game was part of the Ubisoft Forward Assassin’s Creed showcase. Ubisoft was forced into confirming the title of Assassin’s Creed Mirage after details about the game were leaked earlier this month. However, at the time, Ubisoft only confirmed the name of the game and that more details would be provided during its Ubisoft Forward event. Check out the Assassin’s Creed Mirage trailer below.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in ancient Baghdad and is something of a reset for the series. Just a few years after the previous series overhaul that began with Assassin’s Creed Origins. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will go back to the stealth roots of the series that began with the very first game, also set in the ancient middle east. The cinematic trailer hinted at the stealth gameplay in the new title, with Basim pretending to be a beggar before killing his target, much like the original games.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage narrative director Sarah Beaulieu described the game as a return to the narrative roots of the series. In the Assassin’s Creed Mirage narrative trailer, we are introduced to Basim’s mentor Roshan, who is played by award-winning actress Shoreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse).
In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, players will take control of Basim, who was first introduced in the previous entry, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Mirage will take place before Valhalla and feature Basim’s story as he goes from a petty criminal to a member of the original Assassin Brotherhood.
According to leaks, Assassin’s Creed Mirage was initially intended as a DLC expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. However, as the concept grew in scope, it was later spun off into its own mainline entry into the series.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be released in 2023, although a release window has not been revealed at this time.
