Ubisoft has announced new Assassin’s Creed games based in Baghdad, Japan, and other locations
Ubisoft has officially revealed the next big Assassin’s Creed game, after a series of leaks. Mirage, as predicted, would transfer the time-traveling franchise to 9th-century Baghdad, with players taking on the role of a fledgling assassin named Basim. (Fans may recall seeing that name in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla; Mirage takes set two decades before that game.)
Notably, Ubisoft claims that the game will return to the series action-adventure origins, which implies that RPG features from more recent titles will not be featured. Mirage is scheduled to debut in 2023. Also worth noting: Shohreh Aghdashloo will play Basim’s assassination mentor in an amazing casting choice.
