Ubisoft has released a new trailer for its upcoming game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, during Gamescom Opening Night. It gives fans a taste of things to come including a look at 9th-century Bagdad and a full Arabic voiceover.

In the trailer, a wide shot of the Round City can be seen with giant walls surrounding the epicenter in a full circle. Attack on Titan fans will get a kick out of the city’s design, which is based on the historic Round City of Baghdad that was first built in 762 CE.

The game aims to capture the spirit of the first Assassin’s Creed game with its focus on a living, breathing historical city with gameplay mechanics including stealth, assassinations and parkour.
