They also mention that more has been revealed in a GamesRadar exclusive. Key details add that the art book will be available in standard hardcover and deluxe editions, respectively, costing $49.99 and $99.99. The deluxe edition will include a special slipcase and lithograph.
The art book is expected to release on April 9th, 2024. Here’s the promo image from Dark Horse Comics’ announcement post:
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise has always been praised for its attention to detail. And many fans are also hoping Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be a return to traditional form for the series, both visually and conceptually.
Further, the devs have frequently stressed the importance of historical authenticity ahead of launch. While there have been more traditional trailers featuring the main character, the devs have also released an entire trailer dedicated to the process behind recreating Baghdad. An art book would definitely provide some fascinating concept art.
It’s driven by historical influence, which adds a very unique angle that could interest casual gamers, too. That exploration of history remains one of the big selling points of the stealth series.
The imagery in Assassin’s Creed Mirage is definitely reminiscent of the earliest games in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, but it’s also an evolution. Fans who enjoy delving into art books for tidbits of development should be pleased to add this to their library.
However, the price tags do look a little hefty, and it remains unclear just how much content you will actually get. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will release on October 5th, 2023. It will be available on PC, Luna, Xbox and PlayStation.
