It's a complete return to the sources that Assassin's Creed Mirage wants to offer us. The formula that was so effective in the Assassin's Creed games was missing. a certain part of its community since the release of Assassin's Creed: Origins. In fact, the license had changed. towards the open-world genre, diluting its acclaimed scenario and narration in large worlds that are certainly beautiful, but relatively empty and tasteless. For Assassin's Creed: Mirage, Ubisoft is going backwards, and intends to take back the elements that made the first Assassin's Creed games immense successes.

There is talk of a complete lack of leveling and leveling system, although the improvement of tools and weapons has been made. guarded.
We will therefore be able to rediscover this impression of being part of an epic historical fresco, immersed in in the life of a 9th century Baghdad more vibrant than ever. Because if Ubisoft does one thing well, it is also offering gargantuan work in terms of research and historical reconstruction. And the Ubisoft Anvil graphics engine offers great opportunities to fully immerse us in an unknown universe. And this universe is that of Basim Ibn Ishaq, a character that we know from Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and who will tell us about his youth in the order of Assassins, under the guidance of his mentor Roshan.
Beyond From Baghdad, you can also visit other places such as the Alamut fortress, the one which housed the order of Assassins according to the stories of previous games. Although the game is not entirely open world, you will still have the opportunity to explore. to visit the city as you wish, and to meet different NPCs. Thus, Mirage intends to bring together the advantages of a more confined, more intimate and more focused world. on narration, with freedom action and movement that the newer Assassin's Creed formula offers.
