The Entertainment Software Rating Board provided an updated rating for the upcoming open-world action-adventure title, “Watch Dogs.” According to a report from Dual Shockers on April 14, the video game is still receiving a “Mature” rating although several new scenes and sequences were added. It was tagged for containing blood, intense violence, nudity, strong language, strong sexual content in addition to use of drugs and alcohol.

On the intense violence side, “Watch Dogs” has some realistic gun fights that lead to blood splattering. Players will be able to kill enemies using explosives and firearms from their arsenal. The vicious nature of the video game is also going to be depicted through cut scenes.

The nudity in the new intellectual property involves topless women. Some of the females can be seen performing several sexual acts during the non-interactive movies. However, nothing was explicitly shown to the end user. According to Polygon, Ubisoft stated in the past that new contents were added to “Watch Dogs” after the video game was delayed.

The company explained that they wanted to polish the software product into a satisfactory state before releasing it to the public. During that time, they decided to add more scenes to the title, including one that involves topless women. Although this prompted a rating increased from the Australian Classification Board, the Entertainment Software Rating Board decided to stick to the original “Mature” rating.

Ubisoft has two separate release plans for “Watch Dogs.” The video game is coming to the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One first on May 27. The Wii U version should be released in the autumn season as the company needed more development time when compared to the other iterations.
