Assassin’s Creed Mirage Trailer Revealed at Ubisoft Forward, Launch 2023

Assassin’s Creed Mirage trailer is here. At the Ubisoft Forward event on Saturday – early Sunday in India – the publisher unveiled the first trailer for the latest entry in the franchise, set in Baghdad. Previous reports suggested the title was codenamed “Rift” and was originally intended as an expansion to 2020’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The Assassin’s Creed Mirage reveal trailer comes just a week after Ubisoft revealed a teaser photo for the game, revealing its existence. of it is confirmed. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will launch on all major platforms sometime in 2023.

Ubisoft has released a movie trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage, featuring our main character Basim Ibn Ish’aq being indoctrinated into the assassin clan. The ceremony is conducted by Master Roshan, who is graced by the raspy voice of Emmy-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo, best known for The Expanse and HBO’s House of Saddam. With this entry, Ubisoft goes back to the roots of the series, with a tight narrative experience, focused on stealth, parkour, and assassination – as previously reported. Set 20 years before the events of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Mirage follows a younger Basim who changes his life from pickpockets in Baghdad to a skilled assassin.

“Are you ready to leave your life behind and walk the path of shadows?” asks Roshan, as we watch footage of a young Basim being chased by townspeople for a robbery. Despite being quite adept at parkour, at one point he is cornered, only to be rescued by a mysterious hooded killer – the aforementioned Roshan. Basim is on his way to correct his mistakes and join a new family to hone his skills and take out targets that overturn the tranquility of Baghdad. The Assassin’s Creed Mirage trailer also features some short battle footage, making use of both curved daggers and hidden blades.

The Assassin’s Creed Mirage trailer then shows some action sequences as a now-refined Basim targets a group of officials. Red smoke bombs are now part of his inventory, in addition to the drone birding ability that allows you to survey the environment. The ending of the trailer also features a monster akin to the Draugrs from God of War (2018), indicating that Ubisoft is still including mythical beasts in their Assassin’s Creed games.

According to Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is now pre-ordered, featuring an exclusive “The Forty Thieves” side quest. Earlier this month, leaks revealed the cover image for the said DLC, which is clearly a reference to the Arab folktale, “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.” The leaked image also featured a giant doorway, which could presumably be unlocked by pronouncing the password “Open Sesame”.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released sometime in 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Amazon Luna, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
