Ubisoft has released some surprising DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that features a character from the next game, Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

Roshan is the teacher of Basim, another character from Valhalla and the protagonist of the next game. Given his status as a master assassin, it’s only natural that Roshan is too, and her quest sets off some foreshadowing of what’s to come in Mirage.

Eivor’s story tie-in has already been confirmed, so it makes sense that Ubisoft would want to Also teasing the next game in the final installment of the Vikings adventure DLC.
Mirage was leaked earlier this year but was officially revealed in September as the next mainline Assassin’s Creed game to launch sometime in 2023. Set in Baghdad some 20 years before the events of Valhalla, Mirage promises a tonal return to the franchise’s roots .
