Historical Realism Review: Assassin's Creed Mirage
Assassin’s Creed Mirage touts a /”return to the roots/” – but in their treatment of the history, they’ve done something very different than prior games. How realistic is this depiction of medieval Baghdad? Let’s see!

Special thanks to our friend @Ludohistory for having me on his Mirage livestreams, for our many conversations about the game, and for looking through this video’s script.

Note on Ali Ibn Muhammad & the Zanj Rebellion:
I’m aware that Fuladh has two voice lines in the Sharqiyah bureau about Ali and the Zanj if you specifically ask him for more information, but that’s a very flimsy way to handle that and as far as I’m concerned it fully does not count. The Abbasiyah and Karkh plotlines weave much cleaner historical narratives without omitting essential details like /”What is the Zanj Rebellion/”.
