Assassin's Creed Mirage got a seven-minute gameplay demo during Ubisoft's summer showcase, and as the developer has been saying all along, Basim's origin story really does look like a more traditional Assassin's Creed adventure.

Mirage also got a story trailer, which is just about everything you'd expect:
