Last week Ubisoft officially confirmed the existence of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, an upcoming chapter of the franchise. Now, the company has given us an idea of what Assassin’s Creed Mirage might look like. The new game will launch in 2023. Ubisoft has released a cinematic trailer suggesting that the game will take place 20 years before the events in Valhalla. Set in Baghdad, it follows the story of Basim Ibn Ish’aq, who joined the league of the “Occult”.
The latest installment will bring back several key elements of Assassin’s Creed gameplay such as parkour, stealth and murders. It will also mark the return of the drone view, curved blades and hidden blade with the hypothesized story to offer a narrative-related experience.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in the spring of next year and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Those who pre-order the game will also have the opportunity to play a DLC mission called Forty Thieves, which may be inspired by the famous Arabian folk tale “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves”.
Some rumors suggest that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will lower the leveling system along with numerous RPG elements. Previous leaks have also suggested that Mirage will have no gender-changing options, no dialogue selection, and will include traditional Assassin outfits. Additionally, the eagle vision and rooftop hiding places may be returning to the game. The game will also reportedly give us an insight into how Loki consumes and takes control of Basim and will make players understand how Basim has transformed from a pickpocket on the streets of Baghdad into a skilled killer.
Assassin’s Creed for Netflix
Ubisoft has also confirmed that an Assassin’s Creed-based game will arrive on mobile alongside two other Netflix exclusive titles. It appears that one of the two games coming to Netflix is a sequel to Valiant Hearts, a puzzle adventure game set during the First World War. The other game is a “hack and slash adventure” called Mighty Quest for Epic Loot.
The study confirms that both titles will be playable on the Netflix mobile app. Plus, they won’t have any ads or microtransactions. While Valiant Hearts and Mighty Quest for Epic Loot will be available in 2023, the Assassin’s Creed mobile game would be “in the works”. As of now, Ubisoft hasn’t shared any further details on Netflix’s upcoming mobile exclusive, Assassin’s Creed.
