    Assassins Creed Mirage, the highly anticipated next chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, is set to be released in 2023, with rumors suggesting a launch date in August. Unlike Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Mirage aims to return to the series’ roots while maintaining a narrative connection to its predecessor. However, the game has faced some internal delays, possibly due to challenges in developing versions for older generation consoles.

    The game follows the journey of Basim Ibn Ishaq, a young thief from Baghdad who becomes entangled with the Hidden Ones and plays a significant role in Valhalla. Assassins Creed Mirage delves into Basim’s transformation into a key member of the precursor to the Assassin Brotherhood. Ubisoft has hinted at a narrative structure reminiscent of the earlier Assassin’s Creed games, with the events of Mirage taking place 100 years before the formation of the Assassin Brotherhood and approximately 300 years prior to the first game.

    In Assassins Creed Mirage, the use of the Animus, the device that enables characters to access ancestral memories, will be minimized.

    According to Jean-Luc Sala, Ubisoft’s art director, the game will focus on agile movement, stealthy tactics, and fast-paced parkour, reminiscent of the series’ origins. Social stealth and parkour will play crucial roles in the gameplay experience.

    Unlike previous protagonists like Eivor or Cassandra, Basim relies more on guile and stealth rather than sheer combat prowess. Players can expect a greater emphasis on traditional assassination techniques and the utilization of various tools to aid Basim in evading enemies. Additionally, a new multi-kill assassination move can be improved as Basim gains additional skills.

    To raise the level of challenge and highlight Basim’s identity as an assassin rather than a warrior, Ubisoft has introduced reworked detection systems and deadlier enemies. The parkour mechanics have also been enhanced, allowing Basim to swiftly climb buildings and navigate rooftops. Assassins Creed Mirage map is smaller and more condensed compared to previous games, catering to players who prefer a more focused and manageable open world experience.

    Overall, Assassins Creed Mirage promises to provide players with an intimate and back-to-basics approach while expanding the lore of the franchise’s earliest days. Fans can look forward to experiencing a captivating narrative, refined gameplay mechanics, and a return to the series’ core elements.
