Assassin’s Creed Mirage Trailer Sees Basim Transform From Rogue To Hidden


Following the official reveal of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft released a cinematic trailer for the upcoming game during its September Ubisoft Forward games showcase. The trailer describes the journey of protagonist Basim Ibn Ishaq, from young street thief to master assassin.

In the trailer, we see that Basim has been inducted into the Hidden Ones (the precursors to the Brotherhood of Assassins) by Roshan. Roshan continues to mentor Basim, training him as the Hidden One in the partially constructed fortress of Alamut, a structure longtime Assassin’s Creed fans have heard of but never seen.

Now Playing: Assassin’s Creed Mirage: Cinematic World Premiere

For those who don’t know, Alamut will one day serve as a model for Masyaf, the castle seen in the first Assassin’s Creed. It is also the place where the original Assassin’s Creed protagonist, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, retreats after Abbas betrays him and his family. In the setting of Mirage, which takes place 20 years before Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and a century before the Hidden Ones became the Brotherhood of Assassins, Alamut is where we see Basim cut off his left ring finger and officially become a Hidden. One.

The trailer ends with an incredible sequence in which Basim hunts down a member of the Order of the Ancients (the precursors to the Order of the Templars), successfully assassinating them after using clever social stealth and cool parkour moves. . It moves with all the grace, speed and lethality of a bird of prey.

Overall, Mirage seems to be a bit more of a grounded Assassin’s Creed compared to later titles. That said, the trailer ends with Basim having a horrifying sight, implying that the more supernatural elements aren’t entirely going away with this new game.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is slated for release in 2023.
