Ubisoft goes back to basics with this new work

Ubisoft has unveiled the new episode of Assassin’s Creed. His name ? Mirage. It is a work that goes back to its origins, as it abandons the great open worlds and the aspect of role-playing games to focus on a single city: Baghdad.

Assassin's Creed

With Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2017, the saga had taken a 180 degree turn by offering games with a gigantic open world, a very advanced experience and equipment system … For its next opus, Ubisoft has decided to go back to basics drawing inspiration from the first games in the series. It was presented on Saturday 10 September and it’s called Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

We don’t have gameplay images for now, but Ubisoft has already said a lot about its title. The player will embody Basim Ibn Ishaq there., a murderer seen in Valhalla. The adventure will take place twenty years before the 2020 game and will explain to us how this strange character entered the Order.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will take place in Baghdad

The mirage will develop in Baghdad in the 9th century, then the epicenter of the Muslim world. Ubisoft abandons the immense playgrounds for a single denser, more detailed and more refined city. We are promised that stealth assassination and parkour, set aside for years, will return. The RPG aspect has been removed.

For the moment Ubisoft has not provided a precise release date, but we know the game will arrive in 2023. It will be available on PC, but also on consoles (Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS4 and PS5). You can already pre-order it to get an exclusive quest focused on the legend of the 40 thieves.

Ubisoft didn’t stop at Mirage, as three more Assassin’s Creed games were unveiled during the event, Red, Jade and Curse. However, the French study did not go into details. Note that these are not the final names, but the codenames.

Assassin’s Creed Red will be a “classic” game of the franchise and will take place during feudal Japan. A long period requested by fans. Hexe, meanwhile, hasn’t given details, but rumors point to a title set during the Renaissance in the Holy Roman Empire and centered around witch hunts.

In the end, Assassin’s Creed Jade will be set in 3rd century China, or during the Three Kingdoms period. Its peculiarity is that it is a mobile game. Ubisoft doesn’t want to make a cheap game, but a real 3D AAA that won’t have to be ashamed of “classic” episodes, a bit like Blizzard did with Diablo Immortal.
