The most recent Assassin’s Creed game from Ubisoft, formerly known as “Rift,” is now known as “Assassin’s Creed: Mirage” and it will be published in 2023 for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.

After the huge success of the open-world games Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla, Ubisoft is bringing Assassin’s Creed back to its roots with Mirage.

Put that hood on and prepare those neatly prepared hay carts as you prepare to stealthily explore the city of Baghdad in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which should be a pleasant return to what made the franchise so great in the first place.

PS4 version of Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Learn about Basim’s adventure as he navigates the crowded streets of Baghdad in the ninth century in pursuit of justice and solutions. Thanks to a secret, ancient society known as the Hidden Ones, he will change into a deadly Master Assassin and change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.

  • Gain new insight into the specific gameplay and design components that have distinguished a brand for 15 years.
  • With ease, parkour around the city and execute your targets with greater brutality than before.
  • Discover an enormously busy and dense city whose inhabitants react to your every move as you go through the Golden Age of Baghdad and unravel the mysteries of four separate districts.

You don’t need to buy it if you already own the PS4TM edition of this game because you can get the digital PS5TM version for free. The PS4TM disc copy must be inserted into the PS5TM each time a PS4TM disc copy owner wishes to download or utilize the PS5TM digital version. The PS5TM version will not be given away to PS4TM game disc owners who purchase the PS5TM Digital Edition disc-free system.

The next Assassin’s Creed game will be made available for PlayStation 4 2023

Basim Ibn Ishaq is the main character of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is set in Baghdad decades before the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and follows him as he transforms from a street thief into an expert assassin. Ubisoft hosted a Ubisoft Forward event on Saturday where they provided participants with a more thorough look at the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed game.

In Valhalla, Basim was first portrayed as a mentor of sorts for Eivor, the protagonist of the game. His master Roshan, played by The Expanse star Shohreh Aghdashloo, will teach him the assassin’s profession in his coming-of-age story, Mirage.

Ubisoft Bordeaux is in charge of the game’s development, and Mirage is slated for release in 2023 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Despite the fact that Baghdad is a brand-new setting, the series is returning to the Middle East with a fresh emphasis on a more linear, stealth-based game. This was announced at Ubisoft Forward, where the publisher also reiterated that Mirage will return the franchise to both its physical and thematic “roots.”

Karkh and the Round City are just two of the four Baghdad neighborhoods that make up Mirage. They were all built during the city’s peak in 861. However, gamers will also get access to the legendary assassin fortress Alamut, which is presently being constructed during Mirage.

What Ubisoft omitted from the story was any details about what happened in Valhalla, where we discovered that Basim is the Norse deity Loki’s reincarnation and that he managed to reclaim his body and awoke in 2020 dressed as a ferocious wolf.

According to Ubisoft, Basim’s eagle will be essential for stealth and provide players options on how to approach particular situations. The assassin may also slow down time to choose targets for swift assassinations in addition to doing other unusual maneuvers like a pole jump to cover wide expanses. The basic gameplay loop of sneaking in for a kill and leaving unnoticed is supported by Basim’s generally speedier and more agile movement.

Although Ubisoft made it clear that this game is homage to the original Assassin’s Creed, Mirage’s developers also said at a press conference that it has aspects from all prior Assassin’s Creed games.

When Assassin’s Creed Mirage debuts in 2023, though the exact date is still uncertain, there will be three unique editions available. The price of the standard edition is $50; the deluxe edition is $60; and the collector’s edition is $150.
