Assassin’s Creed Mirage Release Date Announced, Gameplay Revealed
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on October 12. A return to stealth for the franchise, Mirage takes place in the ninth century during Baghdad’s Golden Age, with players guiding Basim from a young street thief to a master Hidden One, eventually becoming the man we see in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Ubisoft also revealed a new gameplay trailer today, in which fresh features debuted alongside old favorites, with an overall emphasis on stealth, player choice, and parkour. Throwing knives and smoke bombs make their return to the franchise, as do the large-scale choose-your-own-path assassination Black Box missions.
New abilities like Assassin’s Focus let Basim take out a group of guards in an instant, while pole-vaulting lets him traverse rooftops with ease as he makes his getaway. The trailer also provided a glimpse of Fuladh, the Hidden Ones’ Eagle-Master and one of Basim’s key allies in Baghdad.
When Assassin’s Creed Mirage launches worldwide on October 12, players in all parts of the world will have the option to play the game fully in Arabic, with acclaimed Jordanian actor Eyad Nassar voicing Basim in Arabic.
A shorter experience than recent entries in the series, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is an homage to the game that started it all. Pre-order now to be one of the first to sneak inside grand palaces, run across sun-kissed rooftops, and leap into conveniently placed piles of hay.
