'Assassin's Creed Mirage' Seems To Feature Real Gambling

'Assassin's Creed Mirage' Seems To Feature Real Gambling

According to the game's listing on the Xbox Store, real gambling may be included in the upcoming Assassin's Creed title.

It’s finally here. Last Saturday brought us what we’d all been waiting for - the full reveal of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The title is set in ninth-century Baghdad, and follows Valhalla’s Basim, as he grows from a street orphan into a master assassin thanks to the training of his mentor, Roshan.

In case you missed it, check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage below.

There’s already absolutely loads for fans to be excited about, too - with the addition of new weapons, the return of stealth gameplay, and a positively gorgeous new environment to explore. However, as reported by Push Square, a rare ‘Adults Only’ rating was spotted attached to the game due to the inclusion of “real gambling”.

The AO ESRB rating was seen in Ubisoft’s 10 September livestream and is also shown on the Xbox Store page for the title due to “Intense Violence, Blood and Gore, Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, Real Gambling.” This same page also claims that in-game purchases will be included, but is that really surprising? In the past couple of games, in-game purchases have covered the store where you can dress up your character in themed cosmetic sets in (checks notes) the single-player story. Sure.

SegmentNext has since secured a statement from Ubisoft on the situation. "About the rating, it is a mistake, it is still pending, so things should change up in stores soon," said a representative. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that doesn't mention anything about the "Real Gambling" and as a result, we aren't able to sigh with relief yet. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is currently set to release sometime in 2023.
