  • Assassin's Creed Mirage, released in October 2023 by Ubisoft, is the thirteenth major installment in the popular action-adventure series. It takes a step back from the recent RPG-heavy entries, aiming to recapture the feel of earlier Assassin's Creed titles. Story and Setting You take on the role of Basim, a cunning street thief haunted by mysterious visions. Seeking answers and vengeance, he becomes entangled with a historical secret society – the Hidden Ones, the forerunners of the Assassin Brotherhood. The game takes place in bustling 9th century Baghdad, allowing you to explore a vibrant and detailed recreation of this iconic metropolis. Gameplay Mirage focuses on tight, narrative-driven gameplay. Parkour, close-quarter combat, and stealth are core mechanics as you navigate the city and eliminate targets. The mission structure returns to a more linear style, with the "Black Box" design from Assassin's Creed Unity and Syndicate making a comeback. This means you'll have more freedom to explore environments and strategize your approach to assassinations. A Return to Roots If you enjoyed the classic Assassin's Creed titles, Mirage is designed to feel like a homecoming. It emphasizes the core tenets of the series – fluid parkour traversal, strategic assassinations, and a rich historical backdrop. While the RPG elements found in recent games are reduced, there's still room for character progression as Basim hones his skills and unlocks new abilities. Reception and Legacy Assassin's Creed Mirage received positive reviews, praised for its return to the series' roots and its focus on a compelling narrative. The recreation of Baghdad and the refined gameplay mechanics were also high points. While some may miss the open-world exploration and RPG mechanics of recent entries, Mirage offers a different kind of Assassin's Creed experience, one that emphasizes action, stealth, and a tightly woven story. Here are some additional details you might find interesting: A free trial was available from April 16 to 30, 2024, letting players experience the first two hours of the game. The game received a nomination for the British Academy Games Award for Music. If you'd like to learn more about the game's world and story, Ubisoft offers a digital artbook and soundtrack for specific editions of Assassin's Creed Mirage.

    In the ninth century CE, Baghdad is at its height, leading the world in science, art, innovation, and commerce. Amid its bustling urban landscape, a conflicted young orphan with a tragic past must navigate the streets to survive. In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you are Basim, a cunning street thief with nightmarish visions, seeking answers and justice. After an act of deadly retribution, Basim flees Baghdad and joins an ancient organization – The Hidden Ones. As he learns their mysterious rituals and powerful tenets, he will hone his unique abilities, discover his true nature, and come to understand a new Creed – one that will change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.
