This game is set in Baghdad during the golden age of Islam, specifically the Anarchy at Samarra period, where there was extreme internal instability during the Abbasid Caliphate.

The Mirage timeline takes place a decade before the events of the game Assassin's Creed Valhalla. You will play as Basim Ibn Ishaq, voiced by Lee Majdoub.

Basim was originally a street thief in Anbar City. Even though he is just a thief, he has the desire to join a large organization called The Hidden Ones.

It was not easy to join the organization, he was flatly rejected by Roshan, who was a senior at the Anbar City branch.

To prove that he is capable of joining, Basim tries to steal an artifact with his childhood friend, Nehal.

Unfortunately, they were both discovered by the Caliph at that time, al-Mutawakkil. Panicking, Nehal then kills the Caliph to save Basim and escapes.

In retaliation for this incident, the guards began to massacre all the thieves in Anbar City. Basim and Nehal separate, Basim is then helped to escape from the city by Roshant.

Basim then joined The Hidden Ones and as a new member, he was then trained by Roshan.

From Basim's perspective, players will be invited to explore the city of Baghdad in the 9th century while investigating this city and uncovering the truth behind its government.
