Assassin's Creed Mirage

Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the highly anticipated upcoming installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, is just a few months away from its release. The recent Ubisoft Forward showcase provided fans with a glimpse of what to expect, featuring an intriguing story trailer and an extended gameplay walkthrough.

In the captivating story trailer, viewers were introduced to Basim, the protagonist of Mirage, as it delved into his journey of becoming one of the esteemed Hidden Ones. Basim’s transformation begins with a seemingly miraculous rescue by the leader of the Hidden Ones, leading him to question his purpose and contemplate the true meaning behind following their orders. This introspective narrative sets the stage for the enthralling adventure that awaits players.

Following the story trailer, the Ubisoft Forward presentation treated fans to an exhilarating gameplay demonstration, offering a sneak peek into the early stages of the game. In this segment, Basim showcases his resourcefulness by manipulating the environment to his advantage. He strategically pulls down a structure, creating an obstacle and a cloud of dust to provide cover. Seamlessly traversing rooftops, Basim skillfully evades the guards’ line of sight. The gameplay also showcases Basim’s reunion with the Hidden Ones, where he is presented with a range of new tools to aid him in his missions. Embarking on a scouting mission, Basim uses his blending abilities and employs stealth tactics to eliminate guards, making way for his loyal eagle companion to patrol the sky. With the target in sight, Basim patiently awaits his moment, swiftly dispatching marked guards before closing in for the decisive assassination. As the mission concludes, he effortlessly disappears into the crowd, leaving no trace behind.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes a back-to-basics approach, emphasizing the core elements that define the franchise: stealth, cunning, and strategic evasion when faced with overwhelming odds. Departing from the more action-oriented direction of previous titles, Mirage returns to the roots of the Assassin’s Creed experience.

The game’s narrative unfolds within the vibrant city of Baghdad, providing players with a captivating backdrop to explore as they uncover Basim’s initiation into the Hidden Ones. Additionally, Mirage delves into Basim’s lineage as the reincarnation of Loki, adding a fascinating layer of mythology to the story.

For fans of the traditional Assassin’s Creed gameplay, Mirage brings back classic weapons such as smoke bombs, throwing knives, and poison. Basim himself is a nimble and agile protagonist, capable of swiftly pouncing on enemies and dispatching multiple adversaries in quick succession—a gameplay mechanic reminiscent of the multi-takedown system popularized by Batman: Arkham Knight.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to launch on October 12 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC, promising an immersive and thrilling adventure for players to embark upon.
