The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Monster Hunter World. The role-playing game ended up with a Teen rating due to contents categorized as blood, mild language, use of alcohol and violence. You can find the full ESRB description of the latest Monster Hunter installment below:
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of hunters as they explore and hunt for monsters in the New World. As players traverse various environments, they engage in quests and use swords, lances, and bow guns to hunt and kill their quarry (e.g., dragons, dinosaurs, winged beasts). Battles are frenetic and accompanied by sword slashes, impact sounds, and large explosions.
Some areas depict mass monster graves containing large pools of blood and blood-stained bones. In one of the game’s environments, players’ character may sit down at a table and drink mugs of beer; if players continue to consume alcohol, a drunk animation will appear (e.g., character collapsing on the table; character stumbling around and falling down). The words “p*ssed off” appear in the dialogue.
Monster Hunter World will be released on the 26th of February in the North American region. If you are interested, you can preorder the physical version of Capcom’s RPG with this link on Amazon.
