Ubisoft has recently confirmed the release date of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a chapter that promises to be a return to the origins, but not without some novelties, including Arabic subtitles and dubbing. The chapter that will follow Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will in fact be a clear return to the mechanics and atmospheres of the original episodes. Check out the complete information below.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage Will Feature Arabic Subtitles and Dubbing
Ubisoft has confirmed that Basim’s adventure, the protagonist of the new game in the series Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will in fact arrive during the month of October 13, 2023, as seen in the trailer of the recent PlayStation Showcase.
Now, although the creative director of Assassin’s Creed Mirage has long ago declared that the game will be based on the “fundamental pillars of the first AC,” it seems that it will include a first for the series, related to voice acting.
As reported by the creative director, in fact, Ubisoft will introduce Arabic language options for the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage. In a tweet from the official Assassin’s Creed Twitter account, it was revealed that Mirage will be fully playable with Arabic voice acting and subtitles, a first for Ubisoft’s franchise.
We are happy and proud to announce that Eyad Nassar will star in the Arabic version of Assassin’s Creed Mirage as the main character Basim. Here is a short message from him.

Ever since Assassin’s Creed 2, the series has included the native languages of the country in which each adventure is set. More recently, players have been able to hear a mix of Norse and Gaelic dialects in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Along with this news, it has been confirmed that actor Eyad Nassar will be voicing the lead character, Basim. Nassar is known for his roles in television series such as Face and Back and The Choice.
The first chapter of Assassin’s Creed never had an Arabic language option to allow players to fully immerse themselves in the story of Altair, despite the game taking place in several countries in the Middle East. The decision to include the language in Mirage can therefore only be welcomed positively.
