Leap into Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Xbox, PlayStation and PC

There’s no doubting that any new instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is a big deal. That should be the case as we head to Baghdad in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. 

Available to purchase and download right this minute on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC is Assassin’s Creed Mirage. But don’t see this as a hundred hours plus affair like found in previous Assassin’s Creed titles like Valhalla, Odyssey or Origins. Mirage takes the franchise back to basics, working more stealthy angles in a smaller, more condensed land. 

Baghdad awaits!

That land is ninth century Baghdad. It’s here where you get to meet – and play as – Basim. You find yourself as s street thief full of dreams, heading out into the harsh world in hope of discovering not just answers to your questions, but ultimate justice. 

The plan is to become a Master Assassin, helped along by those at the Hidden Ones. It that which should excite, as Assassin’s Creed Mirage feels more in line with earlier Assassin’s Creed titles; the game which helped grow the series. 

Parkour is front and centre and it’s a cinch to clamber through Baghdad. Our full review will go into the detail you need, so stick around for that. But let it be known that this is a game that focuses on the most key elements of what makes Assassin’s Creed great. 

Key features

  • Experience a modern take on the iconic features and gameplay that have defined a franchise for 15 years.
  • Parkour seamlessly through the city and stealthily take down targets with more visceral assassinations than ever before.
  • Explore an incredibly dense and vibrant city whose inhabitants react to your every move, and uncover the secrets of four unique districts as you venture through the Golden Age of Baghdad.

So, ready to fight your way through the land of the Forty Thieves? You can grab a download of Assassin’s Creed Mirage from the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S right this very minute. The Standard Edition runs a £44.99 price tag, whilst the Deluxe Edition comes in at £49.99 and is included in Ubisoft+. What are you getting for that extra fiver? How about an artbook, soundtrack and Deluxe Pack that mixes in some Prince of Persia inspired goodies…

  • The Sand Outfit made of light extravagant fabric that lets you move with fluid grace.
  • The Sand Sword that can heal its wielder.
  • The Dagger of Time containing sands that legend says can control time.
  • The Sand Horse mount that seems to slow time itself as it speeds across the dunes.
  • The Sand Eagle, a mysterious being that gives the impression of gliding on the currents of time itself as it soars through the air. – The Hourglass of Time, a talisman shaped like an hourglass. According to legend, one such vessel was thought to contain sands that held a power that would wreak havoc if unleashed.
  • The Desert Sands Initiate of Alamut, a dye that uses shades of the desert and the dunes for this outfit.

Further is the Assassin’s Creed Mirage & Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Bundle. A hefty £94.99 will see you given access to both games.

You should have the same options available to you on PlayStation and PC.

But there’s more and if you’re really down with the Assassin’s Creed Mirage vibes, you could do worse than check out what Gunnar Optiks have to offer. We’ve previously checked out their glasses, but the introduction of the new, super stylish, Intercept will all you to blend in nicely with everything Mirage. 

With lens technology that shields you from blue light, the Intercept, Assassin’s Creed Mirage Edition glasses should be perfect for the stealthy nature you wish to live by. Helping prevent eye strain, headaches and blurred vision, and featuring multi-barrelled hingese, anti-reflective smudge resistant lens coating and a polymer frame, we think these look really good. 

The $84.99 MSRP seems a bargain. Visit Gunnar Optiks direct to nab a pair.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
