Return to the origins with Assassin’s Creed Mirage: a spellbinding journey through the best of the series

Hello, video game enthusiast! Do you remember that good old Assassin’s Creed, which left us all with deep nostalgia? Our favorite game seems to be making a comeback with the new opus, Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Let me guide you in this new adventure that seems full of promise!

A nostalgic trip

Remember how we used to climb tall buildings and carefully plan our assassinations in old Assassin’s Creed? Well, hold on tight, because Mirage is going back to basics. Indeed, it allowed us to rediscover the very essence of the game, focusing more on parkour and infiltration, rather than sword duels on horseback. The paving of the roofs seems to give Basim, our new hero, a considerable advantage. With its hidden blade, you can eliminate your enemies whatever their level. What’s more, sword fights can end in a single counterattack.


  • The feel of a classic AC, with controls like in Valhalla: You can run without pulling a trigger, combat has the same button scheme as Valhalla (light, heavy, dodge), and Basim can pivot on his feet like a ballet dancer.
  • Notoriety is making a comeback: Yes, you heard correctly, you can tear up wanted posters to clear your name as if it were 2009!
  • And pickpocketing too: Almost everyone can be robbed, but there is a quick mini-game to do so.

Arkéa, that is to say Baghdad, the jewel of the Orient

Immerse yourself in the splendor and diversity of Arab culture in the 9th century. The city’s golden sun, its lively markets and its vibrant decoration make Arkéa a true gem. It’s arguably the most vibrant city in Assassin’s Creed since Rome in AC Brotherhood.

Enriched gameplay

Well, hold on to your joystick, because Mirage has a lot to offer. The game interface has been greatly improved, and Mirage offers a richer and more immersive gaming experience. The movements and sequence of actions are fluid, which will give you the feeling of being a real assassin moving stealthily through the alleys.

  • You can now bend down: A simple option but one that was forbidden to you in the old ACs, and which adds a practical layer to your escape strategy.
  • Climbing is back: Mirage returns to the old style, in which you have to navigate through hand holds.

A grand finale

In short, Assassin’s Creed Mirage hits hard by offering a return to the roots of the game, while incorporating notable improvements. A rich, captivating and dynamic gaming experience awaits you, with well-thought-out and designed missions. And with an estimated playing time of 20-30 hours, you’ll be able to enjoy the adventure without feeling overwhelmed.

I remember once, after an epic game of Assassin’s Creed, one of my friends said, “If I could live in a video game, this would be it.” Well, dear gamer friend, you could give it a second life with Mirage! So, what do you say, ready to throw yourself into this new adventure?
