Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to release later this year and pays tribute to the original title that started it all. The developers are working hard to create a homage to the first Assassin’s Creed game, which was first introduced way back in 2007, while also bringing some fresh elements to the table. After all 07 is when it all started, and the franchise has gone on to have a Hollywood movie adaption made from it and it’s gone on to be one of the greatest video game franchises of the 21st century and of all time.
Back To Basics
To date, there has been limited information released about Assassin’s Creed Mirage apart from a short cinematic trailer that came out last year. Nonetheless, developers have suggested that Mirage will not be as extensive as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and will instead be reminiscent of earlier games in the series, emphasising parkour mechanics and good old-fashioned stealth over the more recent RPG features.
As we eagerly anticipate additional details, here is a comprehensive overview of everything we currently know about Assassin’s Creed Mirage. This encompasses the most up-to-date trailers, news, and other developments as they emerge.
After numerous leaks, Ubisoft officially announced the development of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, slated for a 2023 release. The game will be available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Amazon Luna. However, players should note that upgrading to the next generation of consoles will not be free of charge. In contrast to recent big-budget releases, Ubisoft has set a lower price point of $49.99 / £39.99 RRP for Mirage.
The Ubisoft Forward digital showcase in September 2022 gave us our most recent glimpse of the game. Although there wasn’t any gameplay footage included, the showcase did provide a cinematic preview of Mirage’s narrative, which you can watch in its entirety below:
Mirage is a new entry in the Assassin’s Creed series that’s set in the Middle East Baghdad, 20 years prior to the events of Valhalla. It features Basim Ibn Ishaq, who was first introduced in Valhalla, as the protagonist. Sources suggest that Mirage started as a spin-off of Valhalla but eventually became its own standalone game.
Although gameplay footage is still awaited, Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will feature only one city in it’s entirety, Baghdad Iraq, which is going to be divided into four zones. The game will also take players to Alamut. The narrative director, Sarah Beaulieu, has revealed that the game’s story will feature several historical figures which goes with the tone previously set, but it remains unclear how the bosses in each zone will be defeated.
Fresh Mechanics & Assassination Contracts
The parkour mechanics in Assassin’s Creed Unity will serve as a source of inspiration for the parkour in Mirage. Not just that, the development team is drawing inspiration from earlier titles, such as Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood, bringing back Assassination Contracts which will please die-hard fans. Along with that, there will be new and diverse opportunities to interact with the environment in Baghdad. The game will feature fresh mechanics for hiding and assassination among crowds, as stated by a developer.
