The next installment of the popular franchise
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the upcoming game in the Assassin’s Creed series, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and set to release in spring 2023. The game will take players to the 9th century Baghdad, during the anarchy at Samarra, a period of political and social turmoil in the Abbasid Caliphate. The game will follow the story of Basim Ibn Ishaq, a character first introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and his transition from street thief to fully-fledged member of the Assassin Brotherhood.
The game is set in what is known as the Golden Age of Islam, where Baghdad was a thriving hub of knowledge, art, and flourishing ideas. The city of Baghdad is separated into five regions in the game: The Round City, Trade District, Karkh, Science District, and Military District. Each region will have its own distinctive features, landmarks, and activities for the players to explore and enjoy.
A modern take on the iconic gameplay
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will go back to the series roots and only feature one big city, instead of a vast open world. This will allow the developers to create a more diverse, rich, and immersive experience, with a focus on stealth, parkour, and assassinations. The game will also feature a revamped combat system, with more options and customization for the players. The game will also introduce new weapons and gadgets, such as the hidden blade, the grappling hook, and the smoke bomb.
The game will also have a dynamic day and night cycle, which will affect the gameplay and the atmosphere of the city. The game will also have different types of collectibles and world events, such as treasure hunts, races, and contracts. The game will also have a branching narrative, with multiple endings and choices that will shape the fate of Basim and the Assassin Brotherhood.
A bonus quest for the pre-order customers
If you pre-order Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you will get exclusive access to a bonus quest called “The Forty Thieves”. This quest will be based on the famous tale from the Arabian Nights, and will involve Basim joining a group of thieves to infiltrate a palace and steal a treasure. The quest will offer a unique challenge and reward for the players, as well as a glimpse into the culture and folklore of the 9th century Baghdad.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is expected to be one of the most anticipated games of 2023, and will offer a fresh and exciting setting and story for the fans of the franchise. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
