Assassin’s Creed Mirage for PC is and action adventure video game, the thirteenth major release in the series and the successor to AC Valhalla. Mirage is principally set in 9th-century Baghdad and features Basim Ibn Ishaq. Historically, this was during the anarchy at Samarra – an unstable period, marred by constantly changing leadership. In the game, Basim – first seen in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – goes from street thief to fully fledged Assassin.

About the Game

Basim will become a member of the Assassin Brotherhood who were rebelling against the Templar Order who were bent on creating a forced peace on their terms and under their control. The time frame begins in 861AD, some 330 years before the medieval first Assassin’s Creed game. This prequel is something of an homage to the first game, and fans will recognise similarities in the settings of the game.
There is an enormous emphasis on parkour, assassinations and stealth in the game, and ancient Baghdad, with its dense assortment of large and tall buildings, proves a perfect environment for parkouring around like an acrobat. As always, jumping across rooftops or climbing up the side of buildings is effortless. And there are always multiple options to achieve your goal, so you can go all out, brazenly, or stealth your way to your target.

Basim has some new equipment that helps him with both combat and escaping from tight corners, such as a detection mine, which can release a cloud of covering smoke when triggered, and a blow-dart for silent but accurate kills. Basim’s journey begins when he comes under the protection of Roshan who will teach him all he needs to know about becoming a Hidden One (member of the Brotherhood).
The game will teach you a lot about Baghdad’s rich and storied history, with new articles and information unlocked the more you progress. This information was pulled together by experts in the field: with photos from the Khalili Collections, the David Collection, the Shangri La Museum of Island Art, Culture and Design, and the Institut du Monde Arabe (The Arabic World Institute), thanks to grants from various cultural bodies and governments.

Mirage puts a greater emphasis on social stealth and parkour abilities than previous iterations of the game, as Basim is not a trained operative like other protagonists. Therefore, stealth and tactics are key, with discretion often very much the better part of valour. Hits do serious damage to Basim, which will then impact on what he can do until he is healed (no quick and easy feat). When he does attack, quick guerilla attacks are his best bet.
And Basim might not be powerful or well-trained, but he is exceptionally fast – and this shows in the parkour elements of the game. Basim is aided in hiding from enemies by some tools, like the corner swing, and he can, when he gets the timing right, pull off a multi-kill move – but he must get it right or be prepared to run away!

Importantly, the game actually takes place a century before the Assassins Creed is inaugurated. The fortress of Alamut is being built – very slowly – and only when it is completed will the Hidden Ones step out of the shadows and become the Assassins.
