Are you interested in learning more about Assassin’s Creed Mirage? The recent Ubisoft Forward event gave fans a glimpse into the future of Ubisoft’s biggest and most well-known series with the release of six independent titles one after another. The game that will be published first is Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is set in Baghdad and tells the story of an important character from the last entry in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

This guide will go over every aspect that justifies keeping a look out for this forthcoming installment of the epoch-spanning assassin-focused action-adventure series. The following list summarizes the knowledge we presently have about Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

It will take between 15 and 20 less hours to complete Assassin’s Creed Mirage than the other games in the series

One component of the developers’ recent vow to take players back to the series’ beginnings with Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s shorter duration than the 150+ hours of Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla is a return to the series’ roots. IGN was made aware of this by Assassin’s Creed executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté.

The Assassin’s Creed project has been curtailed. This was created and built to commemorate the 15th anniversary. We are thus using the Valhalla engine to produce a more condensed game that prioritizes stealth, close-quarter combat, parkour, and a narrower city that returns to our Middle Eastern roots with Baghdad as its center point in order to pay honor to our original game, according to Côté.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will run around 15-20 hours, which is about how long the franchise’s first games lasted. Mirage’s pricing is lower than that of other games as a result—only $50 as opposed to the $70 that has previously been the standard for AAA titles.

The Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe game, which was previously reported, would not be an RPG, Mr. Côté also said in the same interview. However, the genre hasn’t yet been mentioned by the executive producer.

Since Ubisoft wouldn’t exist without controversies, here are some more rumors and scandals.

There are rumors that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will receive an AO classification or Adults Only, due to its gameplay and treasure chests. It was an error, Ubisoft claims, and they contest everything. There used to be an AO notice on the game’s Xbox Store page, but it has now been removed.

The last flourish some Ubisoft Quebec developers reportedly asked not to work on Assassin’s Creed Project Red because it was said that the game’s creative director Jonathan Dumont fostered a hostile work atmosphere, harassed workers, and showed contempt for women. It is shocking that such a reprehensible individual received such a critical position inside the company.

Well, the area where Ubisoft is based is controversial. They occasionally work well as advertising, but not always. Taking athletes from Ukraine as an example, disrespect.

Baghdad is where Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place

More details regarding the setting and story of Assassin’s Creed Mirage have finally been released by Ubisoft, along with a brand-new CGI movie, more than a week after the initial teaser.

During the Ubisoft Forward livestream on Saturday, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a story-driven game that is purportedly more in accordance with the franchise’s stealthy action-adventure roots, was officially revealed. Twenty years before the events of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, it will take place in Iraq’s Baghdad in the ninth century, and a much younger Basim will play the lead role.

In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Basim’s journey from a disobedient young man to a renowned master assassin is chronicled. Basim will be assisted in his endeavors by his instructor Roshan, who will be represented by none other than Emmy-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse, House of Sand and Fog).

Aghdashloo said, “I was immediately fascinated by her formidable attitude and background when Ubisoft approached me about voicing this character.” She is an authentic fighter who defends the rights of the weak at any costs. She is a mature woman of Persian background, so she naturally resonated more with my own life and past.

Although the gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Mirage hasn’t been revealed, Ubisoft has made it seem like it would be a more narrowly focused experience than the widely popular titles like Origins and Odyssey. There was no information on whether the RPG-style influence systems will return in this game, though.

But there are a few mechanics in Assassin’s Creed Mirage that are exclusive to the series. Basim possesses the “assassin’s concentration” capability, according to Ubisoft, which allows him to slow down time, mark many targets, and execute a series of fast assassinations. This function will increase the adaptability of stealth runs. The parkour system is also being redesigned. Basim is a much quicker and nimbler than previous protagonists when it comes to jumping from one rooftop to another.
