Assassin's Creed Mirage is launching this October

Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed game will be released this October

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be releasing this year on October 12th, arriving on PC, and both current and last-generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles. As a cross-generation title, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is expected to be playable on all PCs that could play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and we can confirm that the game will be available on PC through Ubisoft Connect, the Epic Games Store, and Amazon’s Luna streaming service.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is due to focus more on stealth than modern Assassin’s Creed titles, adding some fresh features alongside some older mechanics. Throwing Knives and Smoke Bombs will return with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, with the game returning to the roots of the franchise with large-scale “choose-your-own-path assassination” missions.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will focus on Balsim, and the game will primarily take place in Baghdad. The full game will be playable in Arabic for all players, giving gamers a more immersive/authentic experience with Jordanian actor Eyad Nassar voicing Basim in Arabic.

    Assassin’s Creed Mirage is coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on October 12. A return to stealth for the franchise, Mirage takes place in the ninth century during Baghdad’s Golden Age, with players guiding Basim from a young street thief to a master Hidden One, eventually becoming the man we see in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft also revealed a new gameplay trailer today, in which fresh features debuted alongside old favorites, with an overall emphasis on stealth, player choice, and parkour. Throwing knives and smoke bombs make their return to the franchise, as do the large-scale choose-your-own-path assassination Black Box missions.

New abilities like Assassin’s Focus let Basim take out a group of guards in an instant, while pole-vaulting lets him traverse rooftops with ease as he makes his getaway. The trailer also provided a glimpse of Fuladh, the Hidden Ones’ Eagle-Master and one of Basim’s key allies in Baghdad.

Currently it is unknown if Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be available on PC though Steam. The game currently lacks a Steam page and the game’s official website does not mention the Steam storefront.
