Blood, Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language detailed for Resident Evil 2 remake

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Resident Evil 2. The remake ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood, Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language. You can check out the full ESRB description below:

This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the roles of a policeman and/or a college student battling a zombie outbreak in the fictional Raccoon City. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments and use pistols, shotguns, tasers, explosives, and flamethrowers to kill mutant creatures and zombies. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects.

Cutscenes also depict instances of intense violence and gore: a character’s throat ripped out by a mutant’s teeth; a man’s body cut in half, leaving entrails dangling from his torso; a man’s head crushed by a zombie’s hands. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses/zombies with exposed organs and viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.

Resident Evil 2 will be released on the 25th of January in the North American region for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms. If you are interested, you can preorder the remake of the survivor horror game with this link on Amazon.
