ASSASSIN’S Creed Mirage has been officially announced and developer Ubisoft has revealed new details about the game’s story and setting.
Mirage will be a more story-centric sequel to the series, more in line with the stealth action-adventure series roots.
Although not confirmed by Ubisoft, it seems to indicate that this game would move away from the RPG style elements.
Mirage will take place in 9th-century Baghdad, Iraq, which was the location leaks suggested.
The story takes place 20 years before the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Basim’s return as the protagonist.
You play a much younger version of Basim, who grows from a defiant young man to a master assassin.
Rashid, his mentor, helps him on his journey and is played by Emmy-winning American-Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse, House of Sand and Fog).
Speaking of the opportunity, Aghdashloo said: “When Ubisoft approached me to voice this character, I was immediately drawn in by her strong personality and backstory.
“She is a true warrior who fights for justice and protects those around her at all costs.
“And of course, the fact that she’s a mature woman of Persian descent made her even more consistent with my own story and background.”
Unfortunately, no gameplay was shown at the event, although we were told it would be a more intimate experience than entries like Origins and Odyssey.
New ways of assassinating enemies were also revealed, including an ability called “Assassin’s Focus” where Basim slows down time.
He can then tag multiple targets and perform a series of lightning-fast takedowns.
The parkour system will also be revamped, and Basim will be much faster and more agile as he climbs through the streets.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will launch sometime in 2023.
It will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Amazon Luna and PC via the Ubisoft Launcher and the Epic Games Store.
