Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the latest entry to Ubisoft‘s highly acclaimed Assassin’s Creed series, and just like the previous titles, the game has plenty of references and easter eggs for the fans to enjoy scattered all along the map. These references are either in the form of NPC conversations that the players can come across during their regular course of missions or are in the form of random encounters like the assassin cats in the game. In this article, we will try and list some of the major easter eggs you can find in the game.
1. Assassin Cat
The first hidden easter egg that the game has and many players might have ignored is the inclusion of some special Assassin Cats present in the game which can be encountered while playing the game. You might be wondering why you call them Assassin Cats, in that case, it is due to the Assassin’s symbol printed on their face which is visible even from a distance.
These cats can be encountered randomly, however, they are more concentrated near Abbasiyah Bureau and South of Damascus Gate. There is not much additional special about these cats except for the fact that they have an assassin logo printed on their face. It is a cool addition to the game however one that most tend to miss.
2. Indiana Jones
The treasure hunter garb is a costume in the game that the players can collect as part of hidden outfits in the game. This one specifically, the Treasure Hunter garb has a striking resemblance to the Indiana Jones outfit and the description of the outfit also suggests that it belongs to the one who wanders through the desert in the hope of hunting treasures. This makes a clear reference to the Indiana Jones series.
3. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
This particular easter egg is part of the Tales of Baghdad side mission, where players can encounter a young boy trying to summon the Hidden One’s attention by attempting a leap of faith from a tall structure in the city. This young boy interacts with Basim who then teaches him how to make a leap of faith. Everything seems normal until after the leap of faith is done the friends start to speak to him and call him Hytham, who is introduced in AC Valhalla.
Hytham is part of the brotherhood in England and takes control of their operations in Valhalla while being stationed at Ravensthorpe with Eivor and the Vikings in England. While he plays no part in the story afterward in MIrage it is still cool to see the dots being connected well in the series. To those in doubt, AC Mirage’s storyline and events took place 12 years before the events of Valhalla.
4. Assassin’s Creed 1 filter
This one is more of a hidden feature in the game, rather than an easter egg, the game Assassin’s Creed Mirage, has an iconic screen filter that turns everything grey just like in Assassin’s Creed 1. This filter brings back the feels of Jerusalem and for the fans who liked AC1 better this might be the option to go for. The setting can be accessed from the gameplay option in the setting and offers a very similar gameplay setting as compared to AC1.
The option to turn it on rests with the players and can be switched off anytime in the game, it’s just a filter and nothing permanent. In our opinion, the game looks better without the filter as the city of Baghdad is all about vibrant colors and deserts which brings its own unique game setting, however, the players can definitely choose how to play on their own with the filter on or off.
5. Darius’ hidden blade reference
In Alahmut castle players can find a letter with a close reference to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, where a letter straight from Greece mentions a sketch of Xerxe’s Bane, the hidden blade, the first of its kind which was used by Darius to assassinate Xerxes. The letter does not play a huge part in the game however does make a reference to Darius, who was part of the DLC of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
The game AC Mirage takes place between Odyssey and Valhalla and surely does not miss any moment of making references and connecting the stories in between. This makes us as players connect well to the storyline and connect the dots well in the game.
The game has loads of hidden secrets some are Engima while some are references and easter eggs from previous titles. While some of these easter eggs don’t play any major roles in the game, it is still interesting to see how well Ubisoft has included and hidden them across the game. We hope that you found this article interesting, be sure to share some of the hidden easter eggs that you might have encountered in the game.
