Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is returning to its roots, dialing back on the expansive open-world format and placing a stronger emphasis on the foundational elements that defined the series.

This shift could provide a welcome breath of fresh air as players immerse themselves in the vibrant setting of 9th-century Baghdad.
