Ubisoft has announced the latest game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise titled ‘Assassin’s Creed Mirage’.
The game will be set in Baghdad during the Abbasid Caliphate in the 9th century and stars Basim Ibn Ishaq, a character that was previously introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The released key art of the game shows Basim leaping into a crowd of people in front of the Palace of the Golden Gate.
According to Polygon, the game will reportedly see the Assassin’s Creed franchise return to its roots. Mirage will be set in the Middle East much like the first Assassin’s Creed and will once again focus on the stealth gameplay of the older titles as opposed to the Action RPG mechanics that were seen in Origins, Oddysey and Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage was originally intended to be DLC content for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla however it was later turned into a standalone game in order to fill out Ubisoft’s release schedule.
More details about Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be revealed in a Ubisoft Forward Live Stream Event on the 10th of September 2022 at 3:00 AM MYT.
It has not been confirmed what platforms the game will be released on however it is likely that they will at least be released on the current consoles: the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S as well as on PC.
