Ubisoft revealed the continuing future of the Assassins Creed series at its weekend Forward event. This included revealing additional information about its previously teased flagship title, Assassins Creed Mirage. As much speculated following Ubisofts first image, the overall game returns the series to where it began: THE CENTER East in the Medieval period.
The overall game occurs in Baghdad in 861, through the Abbasid Golden Age. Mirage stars Basim Ibn Ishaq, the mysterious man who befriended Eivor in Assassins Creed Valhalla. Mirage follows his early life as a thief. Roshan, a skilled Hidden One and former Persian slave voiced by Emmy-winning actor Shohreh Aghdashloo, takes him under her wing. Under her tutelage, he becomes a concealed One (the forerunner to the Syrian Assassins which Altair was an associate) himself.
Out with the brand new, in with the old
Through the reveal, narrative director Sarah Beaulieu explicitly stated Mirage is really a go back to the series roots: A single-player, story-driven action adventure game that targets stealth and parkour. It’ll dispense with a number of the common tropes of previous games especially, the ball player character is truly a person in the titular Assassins, or at the very least their Hidden One precursors. While Basim could have side-missions and plots, his primary tasks will apparently be stealth-based target-hunting missions in a city divided by district similar to the classic days.
It can, however, hint that its not completely dispensing with the prior games plot threads. Without spoiling Valhalla, theres more going on with Basim than there seems, and Mirage will explore that. Its also keeping a few of the newer gameplay developments. Like Eivor, Alexandra and Bayek before him, Basim includes a bird companion called Enkidu for air support.
Ubisoft Bordeaux developed the overall game, with help from its sister studios in Kyiv, Odessa, Montreal, Singapore, and elsewhere. The studio has hired over 400 employees since its founding in 2017. Its currently offering the overall game for pre-order. Assassins Creed Mirage releases sometime in 2023 for several consoles and PC. Ubisoft also revealed its the initial of several Assassins Creed games to arrive future.
