Another game that took part in today's PlayStation Showcase, Assassin's Creed Mirage, not only took centre stage with a brand new trailer, but we also got confirmation of its worldwide release date, which sees us hitting the streets of 9th-Century Baghdad this October.
With development led by Ubisoft Bordeaux, the studio behind the Wrath of the Druids expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is an homage to the series, and a particularly special tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed. Inviting players to immerse themselves in a magnificent ninth-century Baghdad at the peak of its Golden Age, Assassin’s Creed: Mirage offers a condensed, narrative-driven action-adventure experience with a modern take on the parkour, stealth, and assassinations gameplay elements that have defined the franchise for over fifteen years.
In this pivotal moment of History, players will become Basim Ibn Is’haq, a young thief with a mysterious past who joins the Hidden Ones in Alamut on a quest for answers. Basim will be voiced by two talented actors: Lee Madjoub for the VO and Eyad Nassar for the Arabic version, as Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is the first Assassin’s Creed game to release worldwide with full Arabic localisation, including text and voice. They are joining the incredible Mirage cast with Shohreh Aghdashloo, who will voice Roshan, Basim's mentor in the Hidden ones.
While the game clearly taps into some of the earlier games of the franchise, and moves away from the open-world entries of the past number of years, we can also see that the spirit of the franchise, in many ways, has returned here.
We're hopefully going to have more to talk about on the above soon, so stay tuned.
Assassin's Creed: Mirage comes to PC, PS4, PS5, Xboxx One and Xbox Series X|S this October 12.
