Following the release of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla in 2020, Ubisoft is now actively working to develop the next part, Assassin's Creed: Mirage, which the company announced earlier this year. So, if you are an AC fan who is eagerly waiting for the game's thirteenth major iteration and the continuation of AC Valhalla, we have got you covered! Read this in-depth preview of Assassin's Creed Mirage to know the AAA title's expected release date, storyline and gameplay, and other details.
Now, there is, unfortunately, no exact date of release for Assassin's Creed Mirage. Ubisoft, following the release of AC Valhalla in November 2020, took nearly two years to prepare Assassin's Creed Mirage. It was announced on September 10, 2022. However, the developers have kept the exact release date of the game under wraps as of now. Nonetheless, Assassin's Creed Mirage is confirmed to release sometime in 2023. A recent report suggests that although Ubisoft had planned to release the title in the first half of 2023, it has been delayed to August for unknown reasons. Other than this, there are no such reports about any delay for the following iteration of the Assassin's Creed series. Hence, fans should rest easy knowing that they will be able to get their hands on Assassin's Creed Mirage as soon as next year.
Assassin's Creed Mirage was initially planned as an extension of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. However, considering the complex plot, character development, and other aspects, Ubisoft eventually decided to make it an independent title in the series. Set twenty years before the events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the story follows the life of Basim Ibn Is'haq, who appeared in AC Valhalla and played a significant role in the finale.
In Assassin's Creed Mirage, players will fill the shoes of a young Basim, who will eventually become a master assassin and full-time member of the Assassin Brotherhood. Through the eyes of the protagonist, players will be able to explore ninth-century Baghdad, which was considered the Islamic Golden Age. Moreover, the developers have confirmed that the game will focus on the purest form of assassination and parkour skills. The AC Mirage story is also confirmed to answer a few loopholes about Basim that were there in Valhalla. So, if you have already completed Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the Assassin's Creed Mirage plot should surely be exciting for you.
Yes, Ubisoft released a rather long trailer for Assassin's Creed Mirage on the very same day it was announced. The trailer starts with Basim Ibn Is'haq, the protagonist of the upcoming title, joining a secret group of individuals to start his journey of becoming a master assassin.
