The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC action role-playing game ended up with a Mature rating due to blood, gore and intense violence. You can find the full ESRB description of the latest Middle-Earth videogame below:
This is an action-role-playing game set in the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings universe. Players explore the open-world environments of Middle-Earth, complete mission objectives, interact with characters, and battle fantastical creatures (e.g., orcs, trolls, goblins) in frenetic melee-style combat. Players use swords, arrows, and knives to kill enemy creatures; some attacks result in decapitation and/or dismemberment, leaving bloodstains and body parts on the ground. Cutscenes depict intense acts of violence: an orc decapitated in slow-motion with a close-up camera angle; a woman accidentally killed by a character with a blow to the head; soldiers impaled and slashed to death.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is being developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The sequel to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on the 10th of October in the North American region.
