The first rendering of Assassin's Creed Mirage has been revealed with footage of Basim, who is at a turning point in his life. Is he ready to abandon absolutely everything he has achieved so far in his life and continue to live in the "shadows" as a member of the Assassin order? He is ready, which is very well seen in the rest of the trailer.
Action gameplay from the original Assassin's Creed titles is back, urban environments are back, streets are full of residents, Baghdad looks just like London, Florence... We saw for ourselves that it plays as well as before at a special event we attended earlier at Ubisoft.
The action in Mirage takes place 20 years before the one in Valhalla, i.e. in 861, the so-called golden age of Baghdad when that city was considered the main center of the world. Since Baghdad was destroyed in the 13th century, the developers from Ubisoft used historical books and documents, so parts of the city such as the industrial Karkh or the green areas of the outskirts of the city were faithfully transferred as much as possible.
In the center of the plot is young Basim, who will grow from a street hero into a murderous Assassin. The plot will also take him to Alamut, the capital and home of the Assassins, and all this sometime next year when Mirage will debut on all current consoles and PC at the popular price of 50 euros.
After Mirage and Baghdad, Assassin's Creed is moving to Japan
Rumors about the so-called Project Red were true. After Mirage, which will be something between an expansion and a big game, Project Red is a title the size of Valhalla and moves into the environment that fans have been calling for for a long time.
In feudal Japan. Assassin's Creed Red will not be another samurai game, players take on the role of a ninja, and Ubisoft will reveal more details in 2023, it was revealed at the Ubisoft Forward presentation. Assassin's Creed in Japan will continue the direction of its predecessor in the context of an action title with RPG elements and a huge open world.
Project Red is in charge of Ubisoft Quebec, the development studio behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and the creative director is Jonathan Dumont, the man who played the same role on Fenyx Rising. Project Red will not be released before 2024.
