Ubisoft Has Confirmed Assassin's Creed Mirage: Announcement Next Week!

It’s official: Assassin’s Creed Mirage. For the upcoming instalment of the Assassin’s Creed series, Ubisoft has unveiled a teaser image. According to earlier rumours, the upcoming game, code-named “Rift,” was previously developed as an addition to the 2020 release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

The Ubisoft Forward event, slated for September 11 at 12:30 am IST in India and September 10 at 12pm PT in the US, will feature further information on Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The lecture will be aired on Ubisoft’s official YouTube and Twitch channels.

The Assassin’s Creed Mirage teaser image suggests a more traditional portrayal of the character than most recent instalments in the series. Our protagonist appears to be dropping in for an assassination while wearing the recognisable white hood and a concealed sword protruding from his sleeve.

This supports earlier rumours that suggested Ubisoft would take a more traditional approach to the upcoming game. Contrary to the open-world RPG-like components they recently added to the franchise, the scale will be smaller, making it less like an Assassin’s Creed game.

According to earlier rumours that suggested that the game would be set in Baghdad, the image’s background depicts a Middle Eastern environment. According to Bloomberg, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a product of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s anticipated expansion.

To make up for the gap in Ubisoft’s “narrow” fiscal year launch timetable, the DLC was changed into a standalone game. Ubisoft’s Bordeaux studio is in charge of leading development, which may be why it is behind schedule.

Recently, new details regarding Assassin’s Creed Mirage were made public by a YouTube user going by the name of J0nathan. The list contained some fresh information in addition to the confirmation of the aforementioned facts.

The movie, which was set in Baghdad between the years 870 and 860 and during the Anarchy in Samarra, appeared to be aiming for a spring 2023 release, according to the promotional video. Other changes include the inclusion of a String Dagger weapon and the return of Eagle Vision, a feature that allows for enhanced perception.

Artwork for the next Mirage was also published in a now-deleted tweet from the Assassin’s Creed fan site The Codex Network. Our hero is pictured holding a sword and donning the traditional assassin’s robe. The outline of a giant charging in his direction can be seen off in the distance.

This would indicate that Ubisoft hasn’t entirely given up on using mythical creatures in its Assassin’s Creed games. Greek historical figures including Medusa, the Cyclops, and the Minotaur served as side objectives in their 2018 entry, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

The phrase “The Forty Thieves Quest,” which is obviously a reference to the well-known Arabian folktale “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” appears in another version of the Mirage image.

One would believe that since the image also has enormous doors, the “Open Sesame” password is needed. If this leak is accurate, it might be included in the DLC or a pre-order incentive.

Online rumours about a different Assassin’s Creed game, Project Red, first appeared in July. The game is set in feudal Japan and follows the RPG genre, as seen in contemporary Assassin’s Creed titles, according to persons familiar with development and games reporter Jeff Grubb.

As part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is referred to as Ubisoft’s live-service platform for future instalments, Project Red will be included.

Even though there is no information on when Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released, we can anticipate it to be on PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and Windows PC. At the Ubisoft Forward conference on September 11, additional information regarding the game and the ensuing live-service platform is anticipated.
