Assassin's Creed Mirage is the new installment of the saga officially. 09/01/2022 20:45As we mentioned…
Ubisoft has decided to take charge of the future of Assassin’s Creed by announcing, all at once, more than five years of games in the saga. A safe and risky bet where the Gauls make clear their attachment to the saga that has brought a underlying problem: the world of real bets as an evolution to microtransactions.
After the official announcement of Assassin’s Creed Mirage last Saturday, at least regarding gameplaysetting and story —since it was confirmed several days before—, a worrying symbol: AO. This ESBR rating refers to “adults only“, one of the most “dangerous” symbols, at least commercially, and that is that it involves the use of real bets.
Adults Only also involves violence, nudity, sex and blood, but it’s those “real stakes” that have drawn the attention of gamers and regulatory media. Given this, Ubisoft has come out to confirm in GamesIndustry that it is a problem that “is being repaired“.
This member of the Gallic study has advanced that an error occurred in many pages during the Ubisoft Forward last Saturday where the pre-orders They were accompanied by this qualification. In fact, he himself has assured that although “Assassin’s Creed Mirage is still pending qualification”, Ubisoft wants to be blunt with this: “no real bets no loot boxes present in the game.
A peculiar situation that ignited the internet due to the inclusion of economic mechanics typical of online video games in an apparently more restrained one, for a single person. It is not only that but the rarity of this rating, one that since Hatred in 2015, as GamesIndustry points out, has not accompanied any game. Even so, it has not been clear how that symbol got into official Ubisoft products, especially those under strict embargo.
