ESRB explains its Mature rating for Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition. The collection of classic role-playing gamed ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore, Sexual Themes as well as Violence. You can find the full ESRB rating description below:

This is a role-playing game in which players can engage in Dungeons & Dragons-style campaigns in the world of the Forgotten Realms. From a third-person perspective, players explore fantasy environments and use swords, axes, arrows, and magic to battle various enemies (e.g., monsters, demons, humans). Combat can be somewhat frenetic, highlighted by impact sounds and large blood-splatter effects. Some attack moves cause enemies to explode into blood, bones, and small pieces of flesh. One scene depicts several corpses and a severed head impaled on spikes; large blood stains appear on the ground and near the corpses.


During the course of the game, players can visit brothels and interact with prostitutes (though no sexual activity is depicted); dialogue includes entreaties such as “Have you come to sample the delights of our company in the backroom. . .”; “Let’s knock boots, honey”; “Perhaps we could…retire to your bedchambers, my lady?”
