June 13, 2023 by Alex Novichenko

Ubisoft showcased new content for Assassin's Creed Mirage during the Ubisoft Forward event, including a story trailer and extended gameplay walkthrough.

The story trailer delves into Basim's journey as he joins the Hidden Ones, their leader rescuing him and guiding him through their teachings. The trailer explores Basim's questioning of their orders and his path within the organization. Following the story trailer, a gameplay demonstration was presented, showcasing a mission where Basim eliminates his first target.

The gameplay demo highlighted Basim's tactical abilities, such as using the environment for cover and distractions, traversing rooftops to evade guards, and obtaining new tools from the Hidden Ones.

Assassin's Creed Mirage takes a back-to-basics approach, prioritizing stealth, cunning, and evasiveness over pure action. It chronicles Basim's story before his journey to England in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, unfolding in the historical setting of Baghdad. The game also delves into Basim's initiation into the Hidden Ones, the precursor to the Assassin Brotherhood, and his ancestral connection as the reincarnation of Loki.
