Assassin's Creed Mirage Will Not Get a DLC, but Basim's Story Might Not Be Over Yet


  • Assassin's Creed Mirage won't have DLC, but the devs may explore Basim's story further in future projects.
  • Fans praised Ubisoft Bordeaux for creating a story-driven game that goes back to the franchise's roots.
  • Players can perhaps expect more of Basim, as the devs still have "a lot to say about Basim."

Ubisoft opens up about new content for Assassin's Creed Mirage, confirming that it won't get any DLC, but the devs may not be done exploring Basim's story. This latest title in the franchise received considerable recognition from new and long-term fans of the hooded protagonists. With Assassin's Creed Mirage, the franchise went back to its roots by offering a compelling and story-driven narrative that die-hard AC fans were waiting for.

Assassin's Creed Mirage was launched in October 2023. Since the launch, most fans reacted positively to the game, though it was one of the shorter titles compared to Assassin's Creed Valhalla and its predecessors. The story features Basim Ibn-Ishaq as he becomes a master assassin. The game is set in 9th century Baghdad, and it's absolutely stunning. While fans don't know where Basim's path takes him after AC Mirage's story ends, the devs made it pretty clear that this is not the last time players see him.

On April 24, Ubisoft Bordeaux's creative director Stephane Boudon and art director Jeal-Luc Sala held an AMA session on Reddit to engage with fans. One of the Reddit users asked the devs whether players could expect a DLC or any story expansion for Assassin's Creed Mirage. In reply, Stephane mentioned that they meant to make it a standalone title. He went on to explain their intent by saying, "However, we have ideas on how we could extend the story of Basim, surely. But as of today, no post launch content is planned for Mirage." This means players can perhaps expect to see more of the protagonist, as the devs have "a lot to say about Basim," whether it's a cameo like the fight scene in Assassin's Creed Valhalla or a full AAA feature. At this point, the developers are eager to "explore new horizons," according to Stephane, though it's not clear if those horizons will involve Basim.

Assassin's Creed Fans Are Eager to See Basim in Action Again

In the AMA session, players thanked the devs for a great experience with Assassin's Creed Mirage and took the news very positively. Fans mentioned that Ubisoft Bordeaux was one of the very few studios that listens to players and tries to provide an experience they crave. One player said that he respects the developers' decision to pursue standalone games rather than DLCs. Some fans pointed out that there are story items in Assassin's Creed Mirage and new areas that can be explored, but none of them complained about not getting a DLC.

However, we have ideas on how we could extend the story of Basim, surely. But as of today, no post launch content is planned for Mirage .

All in all, the AMA session seemed to go well for both the devs and players. Players expressed gratitude to the devs for listening to fan feedback and for a great gaming experience. The developers were also very thrilled with the reception of Assassin's Creed Mirage and went on to say that they had a blast telling the story of Master Assassin Basim.
