Speaking first of the long-awaited reveal, Mirage was finally presented with an impressive trailer. The game’s story will be based in Baghdad in the 9th century, when it was at the height of its golden age.

Basim Ibn Is’haq, a street thief, will be the main protagonist of this episode. He will be seen joining the Hidden Ones while being on a mysterious quest. Basim’s mentor Roshan will be portrayed by Emmy-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is already available for pre-order.

Going further, Ubisoft has also revealed more Assassin’s Creed deals. There’s Codename Red, an expansive title, to say the least. We can compare its scale to a title of similar size like Valhalla. It will take place in feudal Japan, produced by Ubisoft Quebec. According to the publisher, this will begin what will be called AC’s “period three.” An exact release date has yet to be officially confirmed.

There’s also codenamed Assassin’s Creed Hexe, which will delve into the horror genre for the franchise’s first time. It is developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Invictus is also going to be a major addition to the series, exploring the multiplayer aspect. This will be for players who are more interested in getting stuck in the online arena.

AC Codename Jade will also be coming soon in the future. It is designed for the mobile platform. Set in ancient China, it will attempt to appeal to fans in the Chinese region by offering a free-to-play format. Last but not least is a collaborative project, developed by Ubisoft for Netflix. It will also be a mobile game and will tie into an original Netflix TV show, which has yet to be revealed.

After witnessing so many announcements, hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans wasted no time in dropping their reactions. It seems that the majority of gamers are eagerly awaiting the upcoming projects of the iconic franchise. They are extremely excited about what is about to happen.

“#AssassinsCreedMirage is Ubisoft going back to the roots of the franchise and mixing it with Prince of Persia. 15 years of preparation, emotions are there! I can’t wait to launch! wrote one enthusiastic fan.
