[Consol Games] Assassin's Creed Mirage: everything we know so far


Recommended Posts

Assassin's Creed Mirage sees the series heading to Baghdad


Assassin's Creed Mirage looks set to take the long-running series back to its roots when it launches later this year. Since it's reveal, we haven't actually heard all that much about Assassin's Creed Mirage. We're certainly due an update soon.

Starring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Basim Ibn Ishaq, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set in Baghdad, 20 years before the events of Valhalla, and will take the decades-spanning series back to its roots. So far, this seems to mean that the game will be smaller in scope, and less of an action-packed RPG. Perhaps this means that stealth and parkour could return in a big way?

While we wait for more details from Ubisoft, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Mirage so far, from the latest trailers, to the latest news.

Assassin's Creed Mirage: cut to the chase
What is it? Assassin's Creed game set in Baghdad 
When can I play it? TBC 2023
What can I play it on? PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC


Assassin's Creed Mirage is launching in 2023, though we don't have a specific release date just yet. Ubisoft confirmed the game's existence and release window in 2022, following a ton of leaks around the upcoming title.

In terms of platforms, Ubisoft has confirmed that Mirage will be a cross-generation release. As such, expect to see it on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and cloud streaming service Amazon Luna. There's, unfortunately, no free upgrade between generations, but it's also cheaper than recent big releases, launching for $49.99 / £39.99 RRP.

Latest trailer

We got our latest official look at Assassin's Creed Mirage during the Ubisoft Forward digital showcase in September 2022. While there's no gameplay footage included, this provided a cinematic look at Mirage's story, which you can check out in full below:


More trailers
Unfortunately, we have only received one trailer for Assassin's Creed Mirage so far. As soon as we see more, you will find this page to be updated with more trailers.



Assassin's Creed Mirage is taking the series back to basics: set in Baghdad 20 years before Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Basim Ibn Ishaq, who was introduced in Valhalla, takes center stage. According to reports, Mirage began as a Valhalla spin-off before escalating into its own fully fledged entry.

Basim is part of the first Assassin Brotherhood, and Mirage takes us on one of his earlier adventures. Here, he's being taught by Roshan, a Persian assassin portrayed by Shohreh Aghdashloo. Rather than the open-world RPG gameplay of more recent years, Assassin's Creed Mirage focuses on stealth and parkour once again.

As such, expect a smaller experience overall, likely around 15 to 20 hours. When asked about the game's length in an IGN(opens in new tab) interview, executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté said, "Not everything has to be a 150 hour RPG, right?”, confirming:

“It is a smaller Assassin's Creed project. This was conceived [and] built to celebrate the 15th anniversary. So that's why we're using our modern Valhalla engine to build a smaller game that pays tribute to our original game by focusing more on stealth, on close-quarter combat, on parkour, and a denser city that goes back to our roots in the Middle East with Baghdad as the centerpiece.”
