Assassin’s Creed Mirage Gets A Gameplay Trailer, Will Have Full Arabic Localisation

Is it just a mirage or is Assassin’s Creed Mirage looking like what most people remembered in the original Assassin’s Creed from 2007? Ubisoft has put its best put forward in showcasing gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Mirage at the PlayStation Showcase 2023.

The gameplay trailer showcases protagonist Basim Ibn Is’haq as he tracks down his targets, guided by fellow Hidden One, Roshan. There’s plenty of parkour, stealth and yes, assassinating to be seen here in Baghdad. The trailer also highlights the many approaches you can take on each hit, including bribing guards.

Development of Assassin’s Creed is led by Ubisoft Bordeaux, the team that worked on the Wrath Of Druids expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Other studios involved in the development include Ubisoft Belgrade, Ubisoft Craiova, Ubisoft Montréal, Ubisoft Montpellier, Ubisoft Philippines, Ubisoft Quebec, Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Singapore, Ubisoft Sofia, Ubisoft Kyiv, Ubisoft Odessa, and Ubisoft Bucharest.

As alluded to earlier, Mirage is intentionally a tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed game. It’s no remake or reboot, but the selection of the setting and era, as well the non-RPG gameplay, is all done to pay tribute to the series’ roots.

Also, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will also be the first AC game to be fully localised in Arabic, with text and voice. For the VO, Basim will be voiced by Eyad Nassar in Arabic.

The English version will see Lee Madjoub voicing Basim and Shohreh Aghdashloo as Roshan. As you can hear in the trailer, the accented English here feels appropriately done.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be out on October 12 for the PS4, PS5, PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store), Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as well as Amazon Luna.
