Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the highly anticipated game by Ubisoft, is set to release this week. As gamers eagerly wait for its launch, Ubisoft has provided global launch timings to ensure that players around the world can access the game at the same time. In this article, we will delve into the staggered release schedule of Assassin’s Creed Mirage and discuss the implications for players in different regions.
The release schedule for Assassin’s Creed Mirage on consoles is relatively straightforward. The game will unlock at midnight local time on October 5. This means that players will be able to dive into the ninth-century world of Baghdad as soon as the clock strikes twelve. However, for the more impatient players, there is an interesting workaround. By changing their console’s location to New Zealand, they may be able to gain a headstart and access the game earlier.
The PC release schedule for Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a bit more complex. While preloading has already begun across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, the unlock timing differs across various regions. Some regions may experience a delay of up to a day compared to others. Unfortunately, the infographic provided by Ubisoft does not mention India, leaving players in the country unsure about the exact launch time for the PC version.
Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store
It is important to note that the PC port of Assassin’s Creed Mirage can only be accessed through the Ubisoft Connect app and the Epic Games Store. The game will be available on the Epic Games Store at 4 pm UTC on October 5. This translates to 9:30 pm in India. Therefore, PC players in India will have to wait until late in the evening to embark on their Assassin’s Creed journey.
Regional Unlock Timing
To provide a comprehensive overview of the global launch timings, let’s explore some key regions:
– Los Angeles, US: PC players in Los Angeles can start playing on October 4 at 10 pm PDT, while console players will have to wait until October 5 at 12 am PDT.

The global release timings for Assassin’s Creed Mirage demonstrate Ubisoft’s commitment to ensuring a synchronized launch worldwide. While console players will have the option to play at midnight in their respective time zones, PC players might experience variations in unlock timings depending on their region.
