The much-anticipated game among Assassin's Creed fans, Assassin's Creed Mirage, has been announced to launch a week earlier than its previous release schedule.

Previously, Assassin's Creed Mirage was set to be released across various platforms on October 12, 2023.

However, via the official Assassin's Creed X account (formerly known as Twitter), Ubisoft announced that Assassin's Creed Mirage will now be released on October 5, 2023.

"On behalf of the entire team, we can't wait for you to explore 9th century Baghdad with Basim," Ubisoft wrote through the handle @assassinscreed, as quoted on Thursday (August 17, 2023).

Quoting The Verge, the release of Assassin's Creed Mirage will further pack the release schedule with a number of games planned for October 2023.

Some eagerly awaited titles include Detective Pikachu Returns, Forza Motorsport, Alan Wake 2, Marvel's Spider-Man 2, and Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

Assassin's Creed Mirage itself will delve into the story of Basim, who had previously made an appearance in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The backdrop will be 9th century Baghdad.

Ubisoft also mentioned that Mirage will bring gameplay similar to its predecessors, emphasizing stealth, after several of its recent titles leaned more towards RPG concepts.

In the gameplay showcased at the PlayStation Showcase some time ago, Ubisoft revealed several gameplay elements that will be featured in this new Assassin's Creed game.

Introducing Stealth Features and Assassin's Focus

Stealth features, iconic parkour elements from its older games, throwing knives, smoke bombs, and large-scale Black Box missions that can be tackled and completed in various ways.

Another feature is Assassin's Focus, where Basim will be able to mark and sequentially eliminate multiple targets.

The game trailer unveiled at the PlayStation Showcase also introduced Fuladh. He is the Rafiq or Eagle-Master for the Hidden Ones, also known as the Assassins, who, along with Roshan, will aid Basim in his adventures.

Ubisoft also stated that Assassin's Creed Mirage will be the first game in the franchise to use localized Arabic language considering its storyline.

This means that players worldwide can experience the game in Basim's native language. For Arabic voiceovers, Basim's voice will be portrayed by Jordanian actor Eyad Nassar.

Mirage to Focus on the Main Storyline

As is known, some recent Assassin's Creed titles have been grand-scale games. Players could spend hundreds of hours to complete the entire game.

Moreover, titles like Odyssey and Valhalla come with vast maps and numerous side quests, often distracting players from the main storyline. Therefore, this new title will be more story-focused.

"Among our fans, we started to hear a desire for a character-driven story, focusing on the core pillars of the original Assassin's Creed on a more intimate scale," said Creative Director Stéphane Boudon, as quoted from Kotaku.
