Almost nothing remains of 9th century Baghdad, one of the largest cities in the world son time. Burned and destroyed, the city was then rebuilt to cross the centuries and today accommodate more than 8 millions of inhabitants. We do know, however, that it was a new town built ex nihilo in the 8th century from a circular plan and equipped with a double pregnant fortified.

The different sources allow us to know son role, its power and son organization, but it is a great playground for Ubisoft creatives, which placed the action of Assassin’s Creed Mirage there. With a smaller scope, the title allows the license to reconnect with its origins by not offering a vast open world but a dense city, full of nooks, buildings to climb and alleys to navigate at full speed.
