As the release date for Assassin’s Creed Mirage draws near, Ubisoft steps up to address the swirling discussions regarding microtransactions within the game.
Recent confusion surrounding a German rating had sparked concerns that the upcoming title would introduce an array of microtransaction features. To quell these worries, Ubisoft’s spokesperson provided clarity on what gamers can expect in the full game.
Amidst the speculation, Ubisoft emphasized that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will steer clear of any dedicated subscription models or upgrades designed to block in-game advertisements.
The studio’s representative, known as ‘UbiWaldo’, clarified the situation, stating, “We wanted to bring some clarifications following the rating for Assassin’s Creed Mirage in Germany.”
The game’s spokesperson reinforced this stance, confirming that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will solely offer optional cosmetic bundles for purchase via first-party stores at launch. This clarification ensures that any concerns regarding ad-blocking upgrades or subscription-based features can be put to rest.
German Rating and Microtransactions Explanation
Upon closer examination and translation of the German rating, it becomes evident that the misunderstanding stems from the mention of potential microtransaction types that can appear in video games. The rating description outlines, “In-Game Purchases: The game contains options to purchase additional content directly.
These are often smaller additional items that provide more variety in the course of the game, such as ‘bonus levels’, ‘skins’ (outfits for game characters), virtual coins and other forms of in-game currency, subscriptions and upgrades (e.g., to disable advertising).”
The phrases “these are often” and “such as” highlight that the German rating is illustrating the general types of microtransactions found in video games, rather than specific features present in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Ubisoft’s confirmation definitively eliminates any confusion and assures players that the game will not include the mentioned subscription models and in-game ad blockers.
Mirage’s Direction and Completionist Time
As the gaming community eagerly anticipates Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft recently revealed that the game’s average completionist time is significantly shorter than its predecessor, Valhalla. This revelation underscores Mirage’s return to the core principles of the Assassin’s Creed series, where the focus is on engaging gameplay and storytelling.
Ubisoft’s straightforward clarification about microtransactions in Assassin’s Creed Mirage underscores the studio’s commitment to delivering an authentic gaming experience.
With cosmetic bundles as the extent of in-game purchases, players can look forward to immersing themselves in Mirage’s stealthy adventures without the encumbrance of ad-blocking upgrades or subscription models.
The impending release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage promises a return to the series’ roots, captivating players with its unique blend of storytelling and gameplay.
