Everything we know about sofar in Assassin's Creed Mirage

Ubisoft has announced its latest addition to the Assassin''s Creed franchise, which was previously known as "Rift," and is set to launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in 2023.

Ubisoft is resurrected with Mirage after the huge success of the open-world games Assassin''s Creed Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.

With a familiar gameplay and a familiar face, Assassin''s Creed Mirage should be a welcoming return to what made the franchise so popular in the first place, so grab that hood up and get those conveniently placed carts of hay ready to stealthily explore Baghdad.

So far, here''s all we know about Assassin''s Creed Mirage.

Assassin''''s Creed Mirage reveal trailer

The Assassin''s Creed Mirage cinematic reveal trailer, which premiered on the 10th of September, first revealed the official name of the next Assassin''s Creed game.

The film reveals a young Basim Ibn Ishaq, who you might recognize from Assassin''s Creed Valhalla, which is struggling in Baghdad. From what we see it is clear that Assassin''s Creed Mirage will focus on the now-classic trio of stealth, parkour, and murders.

Platforms and release date for Assassin''s Creed Mirage

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin''s Creed Mirage will be available on PS5 and PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, as well as on PC through the Ubisoft and Epic Games stores. They haven''t confirmed an official date yet, but have confirmed that it will arrive in 2023.

Assassin''''s Creed Mirage editions

Ubisoft has already confirmed the various versions of Assassin''s Creed Mirage that can be pre-ordered. The standard edition will be $50/50, the Deluxe Edition will be $60/60, while the limited Collector''s Case will cost you $150/150.

The Deluxe Edition comes with a 32cm figure of Basim, a replica of Basim''s brooch, a map of Baghdad, a mini-artbook, the game''s soundtrack, and a steelbook cover.

According to Ubisoft, you will get access to a bonus quest called "The Forty Thieves" if you pre-order the game from the Ubisoft Store.

The main character and story of Assassin''s Creed Mirage

The end of Assassin''s Creed Valhalla has implyed a shift in focus to a new protagonist, so it''s not a big surprise that the lead character in Assassin''s Creed Mirage will be a familiar face.

Basim Ibn Is''haq was first introduced in the early stages of Valhalla, introducing the ways of the Assassin''s to Eivor and crossing paths later in the story. The Mirage trailer shows a young Basim, who was reunited with his apartment in Baghdad, fleeing from guards after being found.

AC Mirage will follow Basim''s early life as a thief, then as he is discovered by the Hidden Ones, an early iteration of the Assassins, and his path into becoming an Assassin.

Roshan, the leader of the Hidden Ones, who has decided to take Basim as her first true apprentice. The story will be more linear and narrative-focused than previous games, with a clear beginning and ending.

If you had Assassin''s Creed Valhalla''s final date, then you''d know that everything may not be as advertised!

Assassin''''s Creed Mirage setting

Mirage will be held in Baghdad between 860 and 870 BC, and it will be a much smaller game than Valhalla was, as it will take place entirely in the city, which will be divided into four unique districts.

The Alamut is located outside of the city, which is the base of the Assassins'' founders, but there will be no open-world to explore.

It''s unclear where Basim''s origins will fit into the current-day narrative that ties all of the Assassin''s Creed games together. Basim was originally intended to be Valhalla''s own game, and Mirage''s story should have an impact on the present day in some ways.

Assassin''''s Creed Mirage gameplay

The gameplay of Assassin''s Creed Mirage will be a throwback to previous Assassin''s Creed games. With a more tight set, stealth, parkour, and assassinations will be much greater than in previous three games.

Players will enter a gameplay game called identifying a target in Baghdad''s crowded streets, then hunting and eliminating that target before disappearing using reworked detection methods and new tools such as smoke bombs, trips mines, and blowdarts.

Ubisoft has stated that it has increased the speed of the parkour to encourage players to explore the city and track their targets that way, as well as bring back animations like the corner swing that long-time fans will enjoy using again.
