The Entertainment Software Rating Board today revealed their rating summary for the upcoming multiplatform title, “WWE ’13.” The wrestling video game received a T (for Teen) rating due to blood, crude humor, mild language, mild suggestive themes, use of alcohol and violence. It may also contain unrated online user-generated content. You can check out some screenshots from the latest WWE video game in the slideshow at the top of this article and the full rating summary provided by the ESRB below:
Other: Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
Rating summary: This is a wrestling simulation game in which players can select real-world competitors from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. Playable characters can perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., grapples, holds, throws, submissions), as well as punching and kicking attacks. Sledgehammers, ladders, and tables can also be used to strike opponents, who often collapse to the ground when hit; blood sometimes appears on wrestlers' faces. Some women are depicted in outfits that expose moderate amounts of cleavage; one wrestler's signature taunt consists of wiggling her buttocks and waving it in opponents' faces. A couple of live video clips depict a wrestler drinking from beer cans and spraying down his opponents with a “beer truck” hose. Another clip depicts a character's wet pants; accompanying dialogue states, “I just p*ssed my pants.” The word “a*s” and “b*tch” can also be heard in dialogue/soundtrack lyrics, and a couple of wrestlers insult opponents by sticking out their middle fingers (partially blurred/censored).
“WWE ’13” features an Attitude Era theme, which accounted for most of the teen-rated content for the game. THQ will be releasing the title for the Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 systems in North America on October 30. You can pre-order the product in the following link: “WWE ’13”
