Assassin's Creed Mirage

Assassin's Creed Mirage is the thirteenth mainline video game in the Assassin's Creed franchise. Centered around the origin story of Basim Ibn Ishaq, a character introduced in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Mirage is set entirely in 9th-century Baghdad.

It follows Basim's journey from a street thief to a member of the Hidden Ones, working in the shadows to hunt down the string-pulling members of the Order of the Ancients in the Abbasid Caliphate's capital.

The more compact setting positions AC Mirage as a return to earlier Assassin's Creed games known for their detailed historic recreations of famous cityscapes. Gameplaywise, Mirage promises a return to the series' stealth mechanics and iconic assassinations, at the expense of the RPG elements introduced by its more recent predecessors.

Assassin's Creed Mirage released on October 5, 2023, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and on PC via Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store.
