Ubisoft officially revealed Assassin’s Creed Mirage during the Ubisoft Forward Show.
Information about Mirage has been leaked in recent weeks and last Tuesday Ubisoft confirmed the existence of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. During the presentation ahead, it’s finally time to show you more of the game.
The game takes place in Baghdad, and begins during the city’s golden age in 861. Players take on the role of Ben Ishaq, who we know from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, twenty years after Mirage. In Valhalla we see Bassem as a hitman, but before that he was just a street thief. In Baghdad, Roshan meets – with the voice of actress Shora Aghdashloo and the leader of the Invisible. Roshan becomes Bassem’s mentor and trains him to become a fully qualified assassin.
Ubisoft developer Bordeaux says it takes a lot of inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed. The story is more linear and the gameplay focuses on stealth. Bassem has several tools at his disposal such as mines and poison arrows. Although the RPG elements from the previous games no longer exist, players can still upgrade their gadgets.
Parkour has also been fixed. For example, a Basim can use different poles to turn or to cover large distances by firing itself. The gameplay in Mirage should be faster and more agile, not only in parkour, but also in combat.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, S, and PC. An exact release date has not been set, but previous rumors point to a release in the spring.
