ESRB explains its Mature rating for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The open-world third-person shooter ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood, Intense Violence, Mild Sexual Themes and Strong Language. You can find the full ESRB description for the Ubisoft game below:

This is a third-person shooter in which players lead a special ops unit to investigate a tech company in a military setting. Players explore an open-world environment, complete mission objectives (e.g., recon, extraction, assassinations), and engage in combat against enemy militia.

 

Players use machine guns, rifles, rocket launchers, and explosives to kill soldiers and drone units in frenetic combat; players can also shoot and kill civilians, though this may result in a mission failure. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. By grappling unsuspecting enemies from behind, players can interrogate them for information, use them as human shields, and/or execute them with knife attacks. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a bound prisoner repeatedly beaten with a baton; a screaming man being tortured; a soldier repeatably stabbed in the neck.

 

The game includes brief sexual references in the dialogue (e.g., “’Now I gotcha and I’m gonna scr*w you all night long'”; “They [drones] are more than just machines. They are the world’s greatest sex toy”; “But even world 2.0—it’s just mud, blood, and c*m.”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in the game.


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is releasing on Oct. 4, 2019, in the U.S. region. If you are interested, you can pre-order the physical console version of the game via this link on Amazon.
