Do not believe fakes – Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok fake pages appear on the web

Last week information appeared on the networkon the website of the Italian branch Gametop supposedly pre-order for a special edition opened Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok Mjolnir edition. The problem is that Ubisoft has not yet officially announced such a game.

Today, the situation is exacerbated by the fact that Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok, but under a different subtitle – Valhalla editionlit up on the German website Amazon. Is this a leak or a store mistake? It turns out that people who noticed this became victims of deliberate hoaxes. In both cases, they dealt with fakes.

Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok pages on GameStop and Amazon have never existed. Fake fraudsters made, relying on the naivety of fans and specialized media. Attackers spread the fake to the main gaming forums, writing that the original on the store’s sites was allegedly deleted.

Reddit quickly caught a top starter in a swindle. Commentators noted that this was an obvious fake, as the fake page looked the same as Watch Dogs: LegionResistance edition for Xbox one. To supplement his thought, the forum user even created the exact same fake page on his own.

The page on the Amazon website looks more believable, but after careful study it turned out that this is also a fake. GamesRadar employee, doubting the credibility of hearing, decided to compare the screenshot with the pages Cyberpunk 2077 and Starfield from Bethesda – also not yet released projects. During the investigation, a discrepancy was noted in the first line of the description. Firstly, the text on the original pages is written in green and looks like “Dieser Artikel wurde noch nicht veröffentlicht”, which means “This [продукт] has not yet been published. ” And the alleged Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok in orange says “Derzeit nicht verfügbar”, which translates as: “Currently unavailable.”

This alerted the journalist and he decided to run the page through the Forensical duplicate image finder, which resulted in the following: Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok’s alleged page is based on the Jotun game, or rather its extended edition, Valhalla Edition. It was the last phrase that the fraudster used. Jotun on Amazon has exactly the same title, orange text in the description and the description itself. Moreover, the sizes of the second and third images on the Jotun page correspond to the “Box art coming soon” sizes in the fake Ragnarok.

In short, no Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok – Mjolnir Edition and Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok – Valhalla Edition existed. And what is the next game in the Assassin’s Creed series, only Ubisoft knows.
