The Assassin’s Creed series has some of the greatest games available since they offer a comprehensive experience that many other games fall short of. 

This series is one of the top franchises, with twelve main games and seventeen spin-offs. Every game not only surpasses its predecessor but also offers a level of immersion that makes you feel like a warrior right inside.

We were certainly delighted with the gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla when it was launched in 2020. Ubisoft lovers are clamoring for more of that action. 

Ubisoft publicly announced that a new game dubbed Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is indeed in production as I type this, just as we were starting to hear leaks about the next Assassin’s Creed project code-named “Rift”.

We do not know much about this new project, but what we know from our credible sources is discussed in this article.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Setting and Story

These leaks mostly originate from French game leaker j0nathon, who posted them exclusively on his YouTube channel two days ago, on August 28, 2023.

Considering Assassin’s Creed games often occur in ancient times, Mirage is claimed to occur in Baghdad (modern-day Iraq) between 860 and 870 AD.

Occurring during the “Anarchy in Samarra” era, a turbulent epoch in the Abbasid Caliphate defined by the succession of four political figures who served as puppets for rival Turkish Military Establishments, we take on the role of Bassim, a character who was a young thief until he joins the hidden ones.

Since Loki consumed Bassim in Valhalla and not much is known about him, even though he was an excellent assassin, we may be able to learn more about him as we go. Additionally, we can potentially see Loki-related visions, similar to what we witnessed in Valhalla.

Moreover, there have been rumors that, like in Valhalla, we might not be able to detect the RPG flavor in Mirage due to the absence of active dialogues.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Gameplay

Since the protagonist will certainly be Bassim, there won’t be an option of gender choice, but interestingly, there won’t be a level system. The lack of a level system suggests that we can freely wander Baghdad and engage various enemies from various locations throughout the city without a level barrier to impede us.

Additionally, it’s reported that the string dagger will return in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed as a weapon, which means that we could be able to toss foes at one another utilizing this awesome concept similar to the spinning harpoon from Valhalla.

Furthermore, the eagle vision and drone bird are anticipated; while this may not seem like major news at first, removing either one might make the game seem lacking, given that these were key elements in Valhalla.

The DLCs for Valhalla also didn’t feature any current-day eras. Thus it seems plausible that we would see less modern stuff in Mirage than Bassim entering the Animus.

It should be noted that these leaks shouldn’t be considered 100% accurate since renowned gaming journalist Jason Schrier stated that some of the leaks are true, but other portions are incorrect. He was referring to the leak that claimed there would be additional explorable cities in the game.

He emphasized that this is not what j0nathan meant, and there may have been some miscommunication in interpreting his leaks. He claimed to be alluding to zones in the game that divided Baghdad into four sections while still including oases, deserts, and rivers between these zones.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Platform and Release Date

It was rumored that this game would be announced on September 10th; however, Ubisoft confirmed it hours before I started writing this, so we know it wasn’t true; however, we can expect a bigger and more detailed teaser on September 10th.

Numerous sources state that it will be published in the spring of 2023, although Ubisoft recently moved the release date from February to the end of its fiscal year, suggesting that it may take a few more months. Since it used Valhalla tools and was once intended to be a DLC, j0nathon declares that it will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage System Requirements for PC

As it was just confirmed a short while ago, there aren’t any generally acknowledged PC system requirements yet, but since this game was initially intended to be a DLC for Valhalla, our experts believe that it could need virtually the same needs as Valhalla.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage System Requirements (Minimum)

With its more innovative gameplay and potential return of the game’s beloved middle eastern setting, it won’t be unreasonable to believe that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will revive the glory days of Assassin Creed.

Although some activity on Twitter suggests that in-game setting leaks have already occurred, we are aware that Ubisoft is actively working on Mirage and may see it in mid-2023. This assumption comes from the fact that some Assassin’s Creed Mirage picture leak posts on social media have been removed with copyright notifications, indicating that these photographs are authentic.

Regardless, everyone is anticipating the debut of Assassin’s Creed Mirage since it is believed to have the same nostalgic theme as some of the previous editions of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
