While we’re entering the home stretch of 2019, there are still several big games that are set to release by the end of the year. One such game is definitely Death Stranding, which is the latest game from the legendary Hideo Kojima. The game isn’t set to launch until next month, but the ESRB has just released their rating description to the public.
Unsurprisingly, the game has been rated M for mature, with the rating descriptors being Blood, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity and Strong Language. As always, the descriptors were accompanied by a breakdown of the kind of content that is contained with the game. The following is the full description from the ESRB:
“This is an action game in which players assume the role of a courier (Sam Porter) transporting packages across a post-apocalyptic environment. As players traverse mountainous terrain, they can be attacked by human settlers and ghostly apparitions. Players use machine guns, grenades, and shotguns to kill enemies; firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, large splashes of blood, and cries of pain. Cutscenes contain more intense instances of violence: a man and an infant shot—the latter, accidentally (blood splatter appears below the infant); a character shooting a comatose patient in the head; a man stabbing himself repeatedly in the distance. A handful of scenes depict a character with his buttocks exposed. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.“
Death Stranding is set to launch exclusively for PS4 on November 8th.
