Bee soft announced on September 11 that it will launch Assassin’s Creed Mirage in 2023. It is the latest work of the Assassin’s Creed series set in the 9th century Baghdad. This work will be developed as the main title of the series, but it will be a relatively small work. Overseas media IGN reports.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be the main character of Ba shim, who appeared in the previous work, Assassin’s Creed Sahara, in chronological order. He lost his mother when he was young, and grew up on the street of Baghdad alone, depicting the process of assassin from a cunning bandit. Ba shim is the most disciple of Roman, a master assassin, and receives a request at the Assassin branch, gathers clues and defeats the target.
In an interview with IGN, MARC-Alexis Côté, the Vice President Executive Producer in the Assassin’s Creed series, revealed in an interview with IGN that the work would be relatively small. In the recent series of the series, the RPG element was enhanced, and the volume was so huge enough to enjoy it for more than 100 hours. On the other hand, in this work, it seems that the volume is close to the initial work of the series, which can clear the main story in about 15 to 20 hours.
The price in the United States is set to $49.99 (regular version). $10 cheaper than the conventional series work that was a full price. Côté explains the volume described above as a background. The price in Japan is 6600 yen on the official website, and it is still cheaper than the previous work. He also mentioned that this work is a work that celebrates the 15th anniversary of the series, and revealed that the game engine was diverting the previous work, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
While aiming for relatively compact works with existing technology, it is focused on stealth, proximity fighting, parachutes, and the construction of high-density cities. He wants to return to Baghdad in the Middle East, the roots of the series, and respect the origin of the series. Even though it is a relatively small work, it seems to be packed with the contents. The protagonist Ba shim has also been announced as the most versatile assassin in the history of the series.
Looking at the future of the Assassin’s Creed series, various works that can experience the world view of the series will be provided through a hub platform called Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The first one is the open world action RPG Assassin’s Creed Code Name: (RED) set in Japan in the feudal era. In addition, works such as Assassin’s Creed Code Name: (HERE) and Assassin’s Creed Code Name: (Jade) are also refraining.
According to Côté, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will deliver different experiences and volumes. It doesn’t seem that all works after Assassin’s Creed His Mirage will be small. It was stated that there was no RPG element for Assassin’s Creed Code Name: (Here).
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in 2023 for PC/PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X | S.
