The news is officially out!
If you’ve been following me or the Digital Lab you’ll know about this project, thanks to the announcement earlier this year by The Barakat Trust.
The official announcement, released this week by Ubisoft, has all the details on the feature I and my Digital Lab research assistants, Sarah Slingluff and Deniz Vural, helped to create: The History of Baghdad, a historical codex similar to the Database that appeared in earlier games.
This project means a lot to me, personally as well as professionally (as you’ll no doubt notice from the way it’s being reported in the UK news! )
Anyway, I’m very happy to finally be able to share information about the project, and I hope it will fulfill its aim, of making information about the art, architecture, and history of the caliphal period available to a wide global audience.
