Following the game''s release during the Ubisoft Forward event, Assassins Creed: Mirage''s age rating has led to speculation on ResetEra that it might include gambling for real-world money. An ESRB 18+ rating that lists "real gambling" appears to be in force for the upcoming back-to-basics set in 9th century Baghdad. The cinematic trailer below may be if you missed the first look at Mirage over the weekend.
Modiz, a user of ResetEra, started the debate by posting a link to the US Xbox store page for Mirage. This listing, which you can see for yourself here, claims to include Intense Violence, Blood and Gore, Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, and Real Gambling. Others shook up before Mirage was shown during Saturdays Ubisoft Forward stream, which Modiz confirmed.
The ESRB has given out a comprehensive list of all things for real gambling, including those that are not for real money. While Assassins Creed has a history of minigames that aren''t for real money, such as Valhallas Orlog or Assassins Creed 3s fanorona, there has never been anything that could be emptying your pockets in real-life.
Im adamant that Mirage would actually include gambling that might involve genuine money. Ubisoft are certainly aware of the threat to legislate in the United Kingdom, and if banned in other countries, however, the US has uploaded a version of the trailer with an ESRB rating waiting icon. Since the Ubisoft Forward stream, it is entirely possible that the Adults-Only rating is a mistake.
Alice Bee conducted a look at what some of us have seen so far about Assassins Creed: Mirage, which appears to be the series 2007 originator. This one got The Expanses excellent Shohreh Aghdashloo on board, so that''s one extra reason to take note of it. Mirage was initially rumoured earlier this year, when it was named Rift. It took an artwork leak to allow Ubisoft to acknowledge Mirages'' existence a few days later
Mirage should jump onto PC in 2023 from whatever rooftop its loitering on. Ive reached out to Ubisoft to ask them about the Mirages rating.
Ubisoft have released a statement about Assassin''s Creed Mirage''s rating after Ubisoft Forward incorrectly displayed the game for preorders with an Adults Only ESRB rating. While Assassin''s Creed Mirage is still pending, Ubisoft hopes to keep players aware that no real gambling or lootboxes are present in the game.
