Rumors have it that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage game is set in Baghdad. The game is scheduled to be released in the spring of next year.
Previous rumors It was previously mentioned that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game will take place in Baghdad. This was also confirmed by Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreyer. YouTube j0nathan Now adds additional information; For example, he reported that the game will be called Mirage and should be released in the spring of 2023.
He reports that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set in Baghdad, somewhere between the year 860 and the year 870. Among other things, he adds that the game “goes back to the basics of Assassin’s Creed.” Jason Schreyer says in a tweet on Twitter that this information is correct, but not all of the information leaked by j0nathan (more on it below) is said to be correct, according to a Bloomberg journalist. For example, according to Schreyer, the game will not have “multiple cities to discover”.
j0nathan further states that players will take on the role of the young man from the time he became a thief until the moment he arrives with the Hidden Ones. According to the YouTuber, there will be many cities to explore, separated by deserts and rivers, as in the first Assassin’s Creed.
He says Mirage is “back to basics” and takes inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed game. Some RPG mechanics will also be removed; For example, there will be no dialogue options, the player cannot choose the gender of the character and there is no level system. He also reported the return of the Eagle Vision and the “UAV”.
According to J0nathan, there will be “visions of Loki” showing Loki appearing in a body with a name and eventually taking it over. Ubisoft is set to reveal its plans at Ubisoft Forward on September 10.
Finally, the YouTuber reports that Ubisoft is secretly working on a remake of the first Assassin’s Creed, based on work in progress on Mirage (recycled assets). This new version will be incorporated into the Season Pass and will also include DLC about Constantinople (now known as Istanbul), during the time he meets Sigurd.
