July 11, 2023 by Alex Novichenko

In the latest trailer for Assassin's Creed Mirage, the spotlight is on Basim and his transformation from a young thief to a master assassin. Ubisoft unveils the protagonist's origins and his association with The Hidden Ones in an exciting behind-the-scenes video. However, Basim's aspirations don't sit well with his former partner, Nehal, as he embarks on a quest to become an assassin. The game also delves into Basim's early struggles with haunting visions and nightmares.

Assassin's Creed Mirage takes players on a mission to liberate Baghdad from oppression, offering an educational mode that provides historical insights into the city. Departing from the experience point progression system featured in Odyssey and Valhalla, Mirage focuses on driving the narrative forward. In combat, Basim wields a sword and dagger, paying homage to Altair from the original Assassin's Creed game. This back-to-roots approach has been teased before, generating anticipation among fans.

The trailer also unveils the return of outfit dyes, reminiscent of Assassin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood. Players will have the freedom to personalize their robes with various colors, adding a touch of customization to their assassin's appearance. Additionally, Ubisoft has announced a visual filter that allows players to experience the game with the aesthetics of the original Assassin's Creed.
