This year will officially bring us Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The next instalment in Ubisoft’s hugely popular series will be set in ninth-century Baghdad and star Valhalla’s Basim. You may hear comparisons to Assassin’s Creed Unity as the game nears its release. That’s because Mirage will reportedly utilise and build upon Unity’s parkour system.
Released back in 2014, Assassin’s Creed Unity took us to Paris during the French revolution. It overhauled the franchise’s combat systems, in addition to introducing parkour and stealth. Admittedly, Ubisoft has been going through a rough time as of late - cancelling three unannounced games - so it’s nice to look back on simpler times and fans are in agreement that when it comes to Assassin’s Creed Unity, it’s the best-looking AC game out there.
Check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage below.
Fans are in agreement that Assassin’s Creed Unity really set the standard in the franchise when it comes to graphics. Twitter user dark1x wrote, “The visual quality seen in Assassin's Creed Unity remains impressive to this very day. Still the best looking game in the series, I feel (and better than the last three games in many ways - at least, I think so).”

User djpweb added, “Took a lot of effort from the art and tech teams and global tradeoffs to reach this quality that early in the console generation cycle,” while davidspringate added, “I said exactly this at lunchtime today. Weird.” Tauriqmoosa contributed, “Agreed, and Origins is an absolute stunner.” As some pointed out though, Unity is much smaller in size than the most recent three games.
This bodes well for Mirage though. Developers recently confirmed that it too would be smaller and focus on a character-driven story, promising to be a much more compact experience than the sprawling Valhalla. Let’s cross our fingers that it delivers.
