Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay
“In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you are Basim, a cunning street thief with nightmarish visions, seeking answers and justice. After an act of deadly retribution, Basim flees Baghdad and joins an ancient organization – The Hidden Ones. As he learns their mysterious rituals and powerful tenets, he will hone his unique abilities, discover his true nature, and come to understand a new Creed – one that will change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.”
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is designed as a shorter experience compared to recent entries in the series, paying homage to the game that started it all. Players can pre-order the game to be among the first to explore grand palaces, traverse sun-kissed rooftops, and execute the iconic leap into conveniently placed piles of hay.
