ESRB explains its Mature rating for Gears Tactics

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Gears Tactics. The strategy game ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore, Intense Violence as well as Strong Language. You can find the full ESRB description for Gears Tactics below:

This is a strategy game in which players lead a squad of soldiers to stop aliens from destroying humanity. From a 3/4-top-down perspective, players use pistols, assault rifles, shotguns and grenades to kill enemy creatures in turn-based tactical combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire and screams of pain; combat intermittently depicts close-up camera angles—soldiers killing creatures, resulting in decapitation, dismemberment, and large blood-splatter effects. Soldiers can also perform finishing attacks (e.g., chainsaw kills, head stomps, neck snaps) on weakened enemies, highlighted by zoomed-in views. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: creatures shot in the head at close range; a creature impaled through the chest by a bayonet. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in the game.

Gears Tactics will be released on April 28, 2020, in the U.S. region.
