Recent entries in the Assassin’s Creed universe have been large games that take a long time to beat, but Assassin’s Creed Mirage plans to change that with its concise length and pacing. The next entry in Ubisoft’s long-running action-adventure series goes old-school with the game, not just in terms of mechanics but also the playtime. However, by no means will it be a short experience. In this article, we answer the question, how long will it take to complete Assassin’s Creed Mirage?
Thanks to the game’s director, we already have a definite answer even before the game launches. But we will update you once the game is available to play for everyone. Now, without further ado, let’s learn about the runtime of Assassin’s Creed Mirage and how long will it take you to beat the game.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage: Time Taken to Complete the Game
Whenever a new game launches, one of the few questions many people have on their minds is its playtime. After all, gamers need to know how many hours will they need to sink into a game and plan their schedule accordingly.
That said, the previous three Assassin’s Creed titles were large open-world games and required you to invest ample time. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the predecessor to Mirage, was the longest game in the series. Finishing that game’s main story from start to end took around 61 hours. The number went higher for the completionist route, clocking in at around 143 hours, as per the How Long To Beat website.
People who found playing the previous Assassin’s Creed titles exhausting would be pleased to know about the playtime of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Fabian Salomon, the producer of AC Mirage, confirmed its runtime in an interview with French YouTuber Julien Chièze. While the original video is in French, we have machine-translated some of the excerpts to learn the answer.
When asked about the game length, Fabian confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be smaller than their last three releases. Yeah, the runtime will be shorter, at around 20 to 23 hours, this time around.
“For most players, conquering the streets of Baghdad alongside the young Basim will take about 20 to 23 hours,” Fabian said during the interview. He concluded this number from the internal testing of the title at their studio. He also said that this number extends up to 25-30 hours if players start searching for every secret in the game’s Baghdad.
Story Type Time to Beat Main Story 20-23 hours Completionist 25-30 hours
A good thing to point out here is that Assassin’s Creed Mirage runtime is similar to the older titles like Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood. This is appreciative and follows their plans of “returning to the game’s roots.” Seeing AC Mirage have a smaller playtime makes me excited to try the game. AC Valhalla was mind-numbingly tiring for me due to its extended playtime.
