Assassin’s Creed Mirage developers talked about the integration of historical elements into the game

The attractiveness of the Assassin’s Creed franchise is largely in the way real events are organically inscribed in it. At one time, Ubisoft came up with many cunning ways to weave real people and events into the plot, and with the release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage this trend will continue.

The other day, the ComicBook portal correspondent Chris Killian managed to chat with Sarah Bray, the artistic director of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Talking about the most significant heroes in the history of Basim, she settled on one of her loved ones – Ali Ibn Muhammad.

We slowly dug in books, turned to historians within the country and experts outside, found here and there some stories. And one of the first historical characters that I read about was Ali Ibn Muhammad, he is the leader of the uprising. The book about him was spoken only in a pair of lines. I remember I read these lines and realized that this character is so interesting in just two lines that I just have to do something with him", – Says the pain.

After that, we went deeper into this topic and began to learn more about the Uzanja uprising, whose leader he was. It was a very, very specific historical subtext that helped us link "Hidden" with a historical uprising that took place at that time. Thus, we have a good opportunity, and gradually we delved into the study of the caliphs of those times. A lot of caliphs were killed at that time. Obviously, this is attractive to the history of hidden. Digging in history, we gradually came to the plot, which is quite suitable for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

In how these elements from the real world are woven into the game, fans of the series will be able to see on October 5, when the release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released. On this day, the game will appear on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC.

Inveterate fans of the series can even purchase a special tactile gaming vest created based on the game that will allow players to feel different sensations on their body, which theoretically adds a much deeper level of immersion. This kit should go on sale on the same day and will include Assassin’s Creed Mirage download code.

For those who want to play a game in a portable format, it is better to wait until next year, since the game is one of several games presented for the iPhone 15. Unfortunately, the more specific release date is currently not announced.
