Is Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Game Pass?

If you’ve been burnt out by the RPG games in the series, you may be wondering if Assassin’s Creed Mirage Game Pass is an option for Xbox and PC players or not.

Is Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Game Pass? Mirage is very much a return to form for the Assassin’s Creed series, which has left many fans elated and eager to dive into 9th century Baghdad. With a heavier focus on stealth, and a much smaller plot and world, we hope this is a new trajectory for the Ubisoft franchise. But if you’re worried about parting with your hard-earned money, then it’s worth checking out if an Assassin’s Creed Mirage Game Pass release is available.

If you’re an Assassin’s Creed fan, then you know that these games can make up some of the best Xbox games and best PS5 games, but it’s been a long time for old AC fans who have been wanting the series to return to its roots. So, if you’re hoping to save money, here is whether the game will be on Xbox’s subscription service.

Is Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Game Pass?

Unfortunately, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is not on Game Pass at launch, with neither Xbox nor Ubisoft confirming if Mirage will be added to the library anytime soon. However, Mirage is on Ubisoft+, a similar budget-friendly service.

Ubisoft offers its own library of games in a subscription called Ubisoft+, which gives you access to every game in Ubisoft’s collection, with all premium DLC and content, for a monthly charge. Given the Assassin’s Creed Mirage length, you could even finish the game within a single month’s subscription. Remember though, you technically won’t own the game, similar to Game Pass. If you end your subscription, you’ll also lose access to the game – though your progress will be saved if you ever purchase the game or renew your subscription to Ubisoft+.

Ubisoft+ is now also available on Xbox, meaning you’ll get the full Assassin’s Creed Mirage experience on console at launch. You can sign up for Ubisoft+ here.

As for Game Pass, there’s a chance that Ubisoft will put Assassin’s Creed Mirage onto the service in the future. Both Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey are currently available through the subscription service, but it may be a while before Mirage joins the library, if ever. Ubisoft typically offers Ubisoft+ trials and discounted subscriptions, so that may be your best bet for playing near launch.

For reference, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the latest entry before Mirage is not available on Game Pass after around three years. So, if you’re waiting for an Assassin’s Creed Mirage Game Pass release, you could be waiting quite some time. If you’re looking to play the game around release, you’re either going to have to purchase the game or subscribe to Ubisoft+. Luckily, Mirage, being a smaller game than recent entries in the series, is priced accordingly. That’s right, Mirage isn’t a full-priced game.

This approach has evidently worked well for Ubisoft. By opting to avoid a Game Pass release for AC Mirage, eager fans will be more inclined to purchase the game outright, thereby generating more sales. And for those with a tight budget, Ubisoft has that base covered with its own Ubisoft+ subscription, which is also in its best interest to promote. This should ensure Mirage is more successful around launch, which is the most important window for sales.

However, saving a potential Game Pass inclusion for much later down the line, as with AC Origins and Odyssey, can be used to drum up excitement for the latest title. We don’t doubt that many new fans to the series have enjoyed Origins and/or Odyssey on Game Pass, and are now sold on Mirage.

Game Pass in general is a great tool to publishers looking to introduce new players to franchises with as low a barrier as possible, so we could see AC Mirage land on the service in the future.

However, while Assassin’s Creed Mirage may not be on Game Pass right now, you can prepare yourself by playing through the best Assassin’s Creed games until the day Mirage potentially does.
