Well, there it is. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to be the next great adventure in the series and it sounds like it’s going to take the iconic franchise back to its roots. Rather than offering an expansive and vast open-world experience, Mirage is a more condensed and focused game. But beyond those broad strokes, what else do we know ahead of the Assassin’s Creed Mirage release date?
After a number of leaks, details for the game have finally been revealed and it does seem like the dream game for classic fans. Returning features are here from past games and Mirage takes the series back to its roots. It also looks like Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s Basim is going to be a better assassin than Ezio – which isn’t a bad thing. Below, we will chronicle everything we know about the game.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage release date rumours
The Assassin’s Creed Mirage release date is set for August 2023, reportedly. It will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This announcement of a 2023 release was made at the Ubisoft Forward showcase in September 2022. However, a report from Insider Gaming suggests the release window is actually narrowed down to August 2023.
However, Assassin’s Creed fanpage ‘AccessTheAnimus‘ has suggested that Assassin’s Creed Mirage could release on May 15, 2023. This is an estimate based on a pre-order, so it’s worth taking with a pinch of salt given the fact that we haven’t learned anything about this game’s release date officially yet. But a May or June release time certainly sounds plausible.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage story
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will take place in the late ninth century in Baghdad. It will star fan-favourite character Basim from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and is set 20 years before that game.
After Valhalla, it is discovered that Basim is a human reincarnation of Loki who belongs to a higher, ancient humanoid species, so that may play a key role in Mirage’s story.
The reveal trailer for the game shows his origin as a hidden one and sets the stage for the game.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay
Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay was teased at Ubisoft Forward giving us a look at what awaits in the title. It focuses on stealth, and assassinations in a dense urban environment, which sounds like music to our ears as classic fans of the franchise.
Unfortunately, the gameplay wasn’t shown off but hopefully, we should see more in the coming months as we get closer to the game’s launch.
So there you have everything we know about the game ahead of the Assassin’s Creed Mirage release date. Before you take a step on the next journey in the series, take a look at why we think a Basim-led game is important for the series.
