Assassin's Creed Mirage: Baghdad was rebuilt from historical records

Assassin's Creed Mirage

Assassin's Creed Mirage will be set in Baghdad in 861 AD. and, as explained by the development team, the city was rebuilt starting from historical documents, because it was completely razed to the ground.

We talked about the topic in our preview of Assassin's Creed Mirage, in which Pierpaolo Greco explained:

The other fundamental element of Mirage is its setting, also a clear reference to the past of Assassin's Creed. The game is in fact set in Baghdad, a city geographically very close to the areas of the first AC, but at the same time quite unedited to be new. We are in 861, the so-called golden age of the Abbasid caliphate which has its capital in Baghdad. A city that becomes a crossroads of scientists, artists and visionaries, as well as the birthplace of the arabesque ornamental style that from there to the following decades will spread all over the world as a symbol of opulence and beauty.

Basim will move so for the whole city, which was not easy to create, as explained by Jean-Luc Salam, the art director:

Baghdad is the Mirage game theater with its 4 different districts where we can move Basim freely in the continuation of the story admiring and facing different urban styles, from the inevitable industrial area of ​​Karkh, up to the core of the agglomeration, in the circular city.

As Jean-Luc Sala, the art director of the title, later pointed out, Baghdad was created from scratch by his Bordeaux team as the city was completely razed to the ground in the fourteenth century and, for to do this, the software house was based on paintings and documents of the time, also observing the architectural and urban style of similar towns such as Samarrah.

Before leaving, we remind you that Assassin's Creed Mirage will be released in 2023 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PS4, PS5 and Amazon Luna.
