ESRB details its Mature rating for Control

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its description for the upcoming multiplatform game, Control. The third-person shooting action-adventure game ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood, Strong Language and Violence. You can find the full ESRB summary below:

This is an action-adventure game in which player help a woman with psychic abilities battle supernatural forces that have taken over the government. From a third-person perspective, players traverse building corridors and use a handgun to shoot and kill enemy creatures and possessed guards/agents. Players also use psychic abilities (e.g., telekinesis) to levitate and fling furniture at enemies. Large splashes of blood are frequently depicted as enemies are shot and killed; a handful of sequences depict large pools of blood underneath corpses and bodies hanging from ropes. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the game.


Control is being developed by Remedy Entertainment, the same studio behind Quantum Break as well as the Alan Wake and Max Payne series. The upcoming title, which is being published by 505 Games, is coming out for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One on Aug. 27, 2019, in the U.S. region.
