Ubisoft has officially launched the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the latest addition to the popular Assassin’s Creed series of games, at the its Forward 2022 event on Saturday.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set in 9th Century Baghdad, 200 years before the original Assassin’s Creed, and two decades before the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The game will focus on the life of Basim Ibn Ishaq, who actually features in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

“Coming in 2023 is Assassin’s Creed Mirage which takes place in ninth-century Baghdad and centers on the coming-of-age story of Basim Ibn Is’haq, the Hidden One introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla,” wrote Ubisoft on its website.

According to Ubisoft, the upcoming Assasin’s Creed Mirage will mark the return to the stealth-action, narrative-driven roots that made the series quite popular.

Here are the details of Assassin’s Creed Mirage as given by Ubisoft

A shorter, more narrative-driven game than recent entries in the series, Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place 20 years before the events of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, as players meet a 17-year-old Basim (now voiced by Lee Majdoub) struggling with nightmarish visions and living life as a cunning street thief. Fortunately for Basim, the Hidden Ones (including his mentor Roshan, voiced by Shohreh Aghdashloo) see his potential and help him flee Baghdad to the Hidden Ones’ fortress of Alamut. 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.

Built as an homage to the first Assassin’s Creed games, Mirage pays tribute to the series’ roots, as players join the proto-Assassin order known as the Hidden Ones and grow to become a master assassin. Baghdad in the ninth century was a bustling metropolis, and it serves as the perfect dense, urban hunting ground as Basim stalks his prey using the series’ largest assortment of tools to date. While they haven’t quite adopted the name “Assassins” at this point in history, make no mistake: The Hidden Ones are a powerful and established order, with resources and the all-important creed to guide them. As Basim explores Baghdad, he’ll be able to get contracts and upgrades from a network of Hidden One bureaus throughout the city, collect clues on his targets, and take them down with swift assassinations.

Of course, an assassin’s greatest advantage comes from their climbing ability, and as the series returns to a large-scale urban environment, Basim will need to leap across rooftops, scale tall towers, and flee guards by parkouring seamlessly through Baghdad’s four distinct districts. When information can’t be gained by gathering clues, Basim’s eagle Enkidu can take to the skies, survey areas, and tag enemies for Basim to stealthily eliminate.
