Ubisoft has reassured fans that the title will include "Real Gambling," as part of "Adults Only" and "18+."
A US Xbox store listing still warns that Mirage carries "Intense Violence, Blood, Gore, Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, Real Gambling" and lists it as having received the rare Adults Only 18+ label from the ESRB and the US ratings board.
A UK listing also mentions "Real Gambling," "Extreme Violence," and a PEGI 18+ rating.
Comparing to the more widespread warning of "Simulated Gambling," "Real Gambling" suggests that users will be able to spend actual money on gambling in the game.
Ubisoft has revealed that these statements are a trespass in a statement to Eurogamer this afternoon, and that no gambling or lootbox-style mechanics will be present.
"While Assassin''s Creed Mirage was announced during Ubisoft Forward, some store pages mistakenly displayed the game for preorders with an Adults Only ESRB rating," a Ubisoft spokesperson said. "While Assassin''s Creed Mirage is still pending, Ubisoft wants to assure players that no real gambling or lootboxes are present in the game."
At the weekend, the Baghdad-set Assassin''s Creed game was put on a roll, which included a lot of learning.
Eurogamer has a full Assassin''s Creed Mirage preview, which includes a lot of information.
