The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed the rating summary for the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Titanfall.” According to a report from Gamepur on Jan. 19, the first-person shooter got tagged with a “Mature” rating due to blood, gore, strong language and violence.
The ESRB disclosed that players will either be part of the militia or the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. The software product features “frenetic and realistically depicted” combat. Several scenarios will show participants being reduce to “chunks of flesh” as they can be blown into pieces by several weapons in addition to being attack by the giant “Titan” bi-pedal machines. You can check out a set of screenshots from “Titanfall” in the slideshow to the left of this article and the rating summary below:
This is a team-based first-person shooter in which players fight as either members of a militia or as soldiers from the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. Players use a variety of firearms (e.g., pistols, machine guns, missiles, grenades, mines, sniper rifles) and mech-style robots called Titans to seek out and kill enemy forces. Titans use their robotic arms to punch soldiers and vehicles and can also use large-scale firearms (e.g., chain guns, mine launchers, electric pulse guns) to kill enemies. Combat is frenetic and realistically depicted, with frequent cries of pain, impact sounds, and blood splashes. Some weapons blow enemies apart into small chunks of flesh; Titans can also punch enemy soldiers or crush enemy Titan pilots until they burst into chunks. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
The Entertainment Software Rating Board only got to review the PC and Xbox One versions of “Titanfall.” The same video game is also coming to the Xbox 360 although it is being ported over by a different development team. The contents will most likely remain the same, however.
Electronic Arts will be releasing the new intellectual property on March 11th for the same three aforementioned platforms. The PC and Xbox One iterations are being developed at Respawn Entertainment, a company founded by the same core members that developed “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare” and “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.”
