Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been made official with a first trailer. Here is all the information on this episode which will mark a return to the sources.
The surprise had been spoiled in advance because of leaks, but Assassin’s Creed Mirage introduced itself to gamers during the Ubisoft Forward. No gameplay on the horizon, but a CGI trailer and some information.
A first trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Back to basics with Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The game takes place in Baghdad 20 years before the events of Valhalla, during the fifth Caliph of the Abbasids, in other words the golden age of the dynasty. A former street thief, Basim is spotted and then recruited by Roshan, the loyal and honest leader of “Those we don’t see”. Under the supervision of Ubisoft Bordeaux, supported by the other studios of the group, AC Mirage focuses on the roots of the license.
Secret blade, ritual amputation of the ring finger, principles of the Brotherhood, historical figures, Middle East … all the setting should recall the opus with which it all began. This feeling will be particularly accentuated in terms of gameplay, which will return to the origins of the license. No RPG mechanics here. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will take up the foundations of the series, namely action, adventure, infiltration, assassinations or even parkour.
This will therefore sign the return of contracts with the collection of information, the identification of the target and even the animations once it is eliminated. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will also be based on a more linear structure, even if certain passages will allow you to choose the order of the missions. No definitive release date yet, the game will be available in 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC. Those who pre-order the game will receive an exclusive “The 40 Thieves” quest.
