Assassin's Creed Mirage has officially launched, and fans are super eager to immerse themselves in the streets of 9th century Baghdad, engaging in stealthy and investigative adventures.

This year's instalment has driven even more hype than before, because it's been billed as a return to Assassin's Creed's roots in terms of gameplay, history and the storyline. Here's everything you need to know about the latest game.

Returning to the series' roots:

Ubisoft has said it is aiming to recapture the essence of the earlier Assassin's Creed games, focusing on a more concentrated gaming experience. Creative Director Stéphane Boudon describes Mirage as a "modern take on the iconic Assassin's Creed gameplay," catering to long-time fans and newcomers.

If you found the extensive quests and vast worlds of Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok overwhelming, Mirage might be the game you've been waiting for.

Assassin's Creed Mirage release date

Assassin's Creed Mirage launched on October 5, 2023, a week ahead of its original release date, which was scheduled for October 12.

This strategic move gives players more time to enjoy the game amidst a busy October gaming lineup, including titles like Detective Pikachu Returns, Alan Wake 2 and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Which platforms is Assassin's Creed Mirage available on?

Assassin's Creed Mirage will be available on multiple platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Amazon Luna, and PC. PC players can choose between purchasing the game from the Ubisoft Store or the Epic Games Store.

Unfortunately, at the moment, a Nintendo Switch version is not in the cards for now, but history has shown that Assassin's Creed titles sometimes make their way to the platform later down the line.

How much does Assassin’s Creed Mirage cost?

Assassin's Creed Mirage is still available to preorder in the UK and is listed at £44.99 for the Standard Edition on the Ubisoft Store, £49.99 for the Deluxe Edition, and £129.99 for the Collector's Edition. Preorders are also now available at UK retailer GAME, which has both the Standard and Deluxe Editions listed at £49.99.

Ubisoft promises a narrative-driven action adventure with an emphasis on parkour, stealth, and assassinations.

Baghdad and the History of Baghdad in Assassin's Creed

The game showcases the historical city of Baghdad in stunning detail, inviting players to explore its intricacies. Ubisoft has integrated a History of Baghdad feature within the Codex, offering players a chance to unlock rewards for Basim by delving into the history, art, and culture of Baghdad and the Abbasid Caliphate.

This feature includes 66 historical sites to discover, along with research-driven articles that enrich the game's world and add to its authenticity.

In the Mirage cast, Lee Majdoub takes on the role of Basim, replacing Carlo Rota, who voiced the character in AC Valhalla. Shohreh Aghdashloo joins as Roshan, a mentor figure to Basim. Lee Majdoub is known for his role in the Sonic the Hedgehog films, playing Agent Stone, while Shohreh Aghdashloo's credits include The Expanse, The Flight Attendant, and Arcane.
