About Assassin's Creed Mirage
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the thirteenth major installment in the long-running Assassin’s Creed series. It was developed by Ubisoft Bordeaux and published by Ubisoft. The game was released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on October 5, 2023.
In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you play as Basim, a cunning street thief with nightmarish visions seeking answers and justice. The game is set in 9th-century Baghdad during the Islamic Golden Age. The main narrative focuses on Basim’s internal struggle between his duties as a Hidden One and his desire to uncover his mysterious past.
The game is designed to return to the series’ roots by focusing on stealth, parkour, and assassinations over the role-playing elements featured heavily in recent installments. For assassination missions, Mirage adopts the “Black Box” design previously seen in Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, where players have to explore the environment to find different ways to reach and eliminate their targets.
The game is set principally in the city of Baghdad, which is divided into four districts—the Round City, Karkh, Abassiyah with its House of Wisdom, and Harbiyah—but also features several smaller towns like Anbar, located on the outskirts of the city.
