The game was previously known as Rift and was originally meant to be a sequel to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. However, Ubisoft reworked it to make it a standalone title. Players will play as the young Basim Ibn Ishaq from the Valhalla game and explore the world in his own way. The Mirage game is set in Baghdad during the 9th century and will feature the same characters from the Valhalla series.

After a long wait, Ubisoft finally revealed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage would be their next mainline title. The game will be set in Baghdad, Iraq, and is reportedly more similar to the first few Assassin’s Creed games than to the later games.
