Assassin’s Creed Mirage gets a reveal CGI trailer and new details – Effinate Games

Following a recent leak and confirmation of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft has shown off a reveal trailer that goes over Basim’s introduction to the Brotherhood. This lengthy CGI trailer doesn’t show any gameplay, but it’s promised that this is a return to the series’ roots and less like recent RPG-focused titles such as Valhalla and Odyssey. The game will focus more on stealth and executing assassinations rather than building yourself up over time. It is rumored that the game will be more similar to the style and gameplay of the original game.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage stars as Basim, a character introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. We know that Basim has a significant role in the modern story as we progress, but Mirage is a prequel story that takes place 20 years earlier in the city of Baghdad. Basim starts the game as a common thief before being brought in and mentored by Roshan, voiced by Emmy Award-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo.

The CGI trailer shows a lot of common Assassin’s Creed imagery: the initiation process of cutting off the ring finger to allow the hidden blade to pass through, the iconic parkour move, and the assassination gear and abilities to take down your target. We also get a potentially quick look at Loki, the Norse god who we know converges with Basim prior to the events of Valhalla. This game will likely explore the origins of how it came to be.

Right now, there are still quite a few questions surrounding Assassin’s Creed Mirage. While we know it will be released sometime in 2023, we don’t have a tighter release window. The fact that no gameplay was shown for the game leads us to believe that it should be scheduled for sometime in the second half of the year, which is pretty common for the series.
