Experience Ubisoft’s vision of old Baghdad with Dark Horse’s The Art of Assassin’s Creed Mirage

With the game arriving this fall, Dark Horse’s exploration of Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to debut on shelves in 2024.

Back to the start

While it might not exactly be going back to the actual start of the franchise, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is bringing this now-iconic set of games back to its original themes at the very least. Players will take up the role of the warrior Basim, as he becomes a member of the order in the city of Baghdad.

And with the amount of detail that Ubisoft tends to put into these games, it just wouldn’t be an Assassin’s Creed title without an art book to accompany it. That will, of course, come by way of publisher Dark Horse, with a new book set to hit stores in 2024.

As usual, you can expect it to be loaded up with not just art from and surrounding the game in question, but also a deep look behind the scenes.

This masterfully designed oversized hardcover art book invites the reader on a visual journey through the world of Assassin’s Creed Mirage—a world defined by the dense and vibrant city of ninth century Baghdad, rich with fascinating characters and unique places.

Featuring iconic artwork ranging from stunning settings to dazzling weapons, this volume offers an insider’s look at the “back to the roots” focus of this very unique game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Ubisoft and Dark Horse Books offer this enticing collection of art and commentary that is sure to attract returning fans and newcomers alike.

Dark Horse press release

Fans can look for both standard hardcover ($49.99 USD) and Deluxe Editions ($99.99 USD) of The Art of Assassin’s Creed Mirage to hit bookstores on April 9th, and comic shops on April 10th, 2024. In addition to the oversized 9×12 art book, the Deluxe will come with a “beautifully designed slipcase and a gallery-quality lithograph”.
