ESRB explains Teen rating for WWE 2K18

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for WWE 2K18. The latest installment of the long running wrestling game series ended up with a Teen rating due to alcohol reference, blood, mild language, mild suggestive themes and violence. You can check out the full ESRB description for 2K18 below:

This is a wrestling simulation game in which players select real-world competitors from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. Players can perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., throws, holds, grapples) as well as punch and kick opponents. Some matches allow players to use chairs, sledgehammers, and baseball bats to strike opponents. Blood sometimes appears on wrestlers’ bodies/faces after being struck repeatedly by objects.

Some female wrestlers wear revealing outfits that expose deep cleavage; wrestlers may also make provocative gestures (e.g., crotch chop) during matches. The dialogue contains references to beer, wine, champagne, and being drunk (e.g., “So please crack open a beer and let’s celebrate!”; “You still drunk from last night and wander your way into the wrong arena?”). The words “a*s,” “b*tch,” and bastard can also be heard.

WWE 2K18 will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. If you are interested, you can preorder a physical copy of the wrestling game with this link on Amazon.
