Assassin’s Creed Mirage is now launching 1 week earlier than planned on October 5, which was announced by Ubisoft.
Revealed on Twitter (now known as X), this change appears to be a result of the game going gold early, which means the launch version is ready to go.
“Assassin’s Creed Mirage has gone gold and is coming out a week early,” the tweet said. “On behalf of the entire team, we can’t wait for you to explore 9th Century Baghdad with Basim. Your journey now starts on October 5. Save the new date.”
Announced at Ubisoft Forward 2022, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set in the land of Baghdad, playing as the younger version of Basim as the protagonist (appeared in AC Valhalla as a side character). The game will also offer a more concise experience, with playtime roughly lasting around 20-30 hours, which offers relief for players from the daunting playtimes from the past Assassin’s Creed games.
