Heidi Nicholas - September 13th 2022

The Assassin's Creed team has clarified that despite an error showing an Adults Only ESRB rating, "no real gambling or loot boxes are present" in Assassin's Creed Mirage.

Assassin's Creed Mirage has only just been officially revealed, but some were concerned about the possibility of gambling and loot boxes in the game after it appeared on some store pages with an Adults Only ESRB rating. The Assassin's Creed team has now clarified the matter, and it seems those ratings were indeed an error.

Assassin's Creed Mirage won't feature loot boxes or "real gambling"

"Following the announcement of Assassin's Creed Mirage, some store pages displayed the game for preorders with an Adults Only ESRB rating. While the game is still pending rating, we want to reassure players that no real gambling or loot boxes are present in the game," the Assassin's Creed team says.

It wasn't only Assassin's Creed Mirage that was announced at Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed showcase; we also learnt that Assassin's Creed heads to feudal Japan for its next open-world RPG, and that there are other projects in the works, including something called Project Hexe.

As for Assassin's Creed Mirage, we know that it will be set in Baghdad 20 years before the events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and will revolve around Basim's transformation from a street thief to a master assassin.
