Ubisoft’s Fabian Salomon has revealed during an interview with YouTube channel Julien Chieze that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will last anywhere between 20-30 hours in length, which means it’s nowhere near as long as the last few games in the series.
Given that we do a lot of playtesting internally at Ubisoft, it’s part of our process, we really want to get as close as possible to the players, so we’ll say that the latest playtimes we’ve received average at around 20-23 hours. That can go up to 25-30 hours for the completionists, and we’ll say that those who will be rushing the game will be around 20 hours.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in 9th-century Baghdad, and sees Basim becoming embroiled in the war against the Templar Order. The game’s developers are making a conscious effort to bring the series back to its roots with Mirage, replacing the sprawling open-world setting with a focus on linear storytelling and stealth gameplay.
Ubisoft will publish Assassin’s Creed Mirage for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on October 12, 2023.
