In a groundbreaking fusion of music and gaming, OneRepublic and Mishaal Tamer have joined forces with Ubisoft to create “Mirage,” a captivating new composition featured in the highly-anticipated Assassin’s Creed Mirage video game. Beyond being a mere auditory experience, “Mirage” is a narrative-driven masterpiece that intricately weaves elements from the game’s storyline and rich setting. This mesmerizing track is now accessible across a multitude of platforms, including Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Spotify, the iTunes Store, Tidal, and YouTube Music.
Ryan Tedder, the charismatic frontman of OneRepublic, is not just lending his remarkable vocals to the project; he has delved deeply into the game’s narrative to become the driving force behind the song’s lyrics and melody. Tedder’s involvement goes far beyond a casual collaboration; he openly admits his admiration for the Assassin’s Creed series and views this partnership as a harmonious convergence with the game’s return to its roots. In a recent press release, Tedder revealed, “Most people don’t know this about me, but my band and I are closet gamers. Having toured extensively in the Middle East, I wanted to capture the spirit of that region and infuse it into the sonic essence of the game as much as possible.”
Set for release on October 5th across a wide array of platforms, including PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is already generating considerable excitement, particularly due to its immersive and vibrant settings.
