How long is Assassin's Creed Mirage?

How long is Assassin’s Creed Mirage? Comparatively it's a shorter adventure to previous outings in the series as you hike through 9th Century Baghdad. The bloat seen in the more recent RPG focused ACs has largely been stripped out, which is the main reason why Mirage doesn’t take up too much of your time - most players should roll the credits within 25 hours. However, lots of things can affect how long it takes to beat Assassin’s Creed Mirage, so I’ve laid out some estimated completion times based on my experiences playing.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is relatively short overall, offering a much more compact experience when held up against the colossal scale of Odyssey and Valhalla. The Baghdad map is large, and there are plenty of side activities and collectibles to get, but you can get through the story in under 20 hours if you really speed through Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Here’s how long I reckon it’ll take you to beat AC Mirage based on how you play.

  • Story missions only: 16-20 hours
  • Story + some side missions: 20-25 hours
  • 100% completionist: 30+ hours

With a fair amount of exploration, messing about, and looking for collectibles across Baghdad, such as the Assassin's Creed Mirage Bazaar Gear Chest, I managed to reach the credits in about 24 hours. Obviously, if you’re only interested in the story and spend no time looking for extras like Gear Chests or hunting down Enigmas and such, you should get through the game in 20 hours or fewer.

However, completionists will definitely be spending closer to 30 hours gathering up all those collectible items, completing Contracts, and more. Your difficulty options and approach to stealth might also affect how you play, as dying can set you back quite far during major assassination quests, so slow, steady, and stealthy can be quicker in the end!
