'Assassin's Creed Mirage' Confirmed To Not Contain Real Gambling

'Assassin's Creed Mirage' Confirmed To Not Contain Real Gambling

After adults-only ratings previously appeared online, Ubisoft has confirmed Mirage does not in fact include gambling.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage was formally unveiled last week. Based around Valhalla’s Basim, Mirage is set in ninth century Baghdad and it was recently revealed that the game would feature no modern-day gameplay segments which is a marked change for the series. Just yesterday, it was reported that Mirage may include real gambling after an ‘adults only’ rating appeared online. Ubisoft have now cleared up any confusion.

Check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage below.

It appears that Assassin’s Creed Mirage might not contain real gambling after all despite the fact that an ESRB AO (adults only) logo was displayed during the Ubisoft Forward showcase reveal. Likewise, the Xbox Store also carried the AO rating, noting that the game included, “intense violence, blood and gore, sexual themes, partial nudity and real gambling.” Ubisoft have now said that this is a mistake and the rating is still pending.

In a statement to, Ubisoft wrote, “Following the announcement of Assassin's Creed Mirage during Ubisoft Forward, some store pages mistakenly displayed the game for pre-orders with an Adults Only ESRB rating and are being fixed.” They continued, “While Assassin's Creed Mirage is still pending rating, Ubisoft wants to reassure players that no real gambling or lootboxes are present in the game."

AO ratings are fairly rare, so it certainly would be unusual for Assassin’s Creed Mirage to be deemed as such. It still doesn’t explain how the AO rating ended up in the showcase but there we have it.
