ESRB details the blood, gore, intense violence and more in Wolfenstein: Youngblood

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The first-person shooter ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language. You can check out the gull ESRB description for the latest Wolfenstein game below:

This is a first-person shooter in which players follow the story of the twin daughters of BJ Blazkowicz, the central character of previous Wolfenstein games. Players can engage in combat missions against Nazi enemies while following the storyline; characters use pistols, rifles, machine guns, and futuristic weapons to kill soldiers and mech characters. Some weapons allow players to blow off enemies’ limbs/heads, resulting in large blood-splatter effects and chunks of flesh.


A few cutscenes depict further instances of intense violence: a soldier’s head exploding after being shot; a character crushed to death and partially decapitated after an explosion; a character stabbed in the eye. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is coming out on July 26, 2019, in the U.S. region for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC. If you are interested, you can pre-order the physical console version of the first-person shooter from Amazon with this link.
