Full ESRB description revealed for Days Gone

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its full description for Days Gone. The PlayStation 4 exclusive ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes in addition to Strong Language. You can find the complete ESRB summary for Days Gone below:

This is an action game in which players assume the role of Deacon St. John, a biker trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Players complete various missions, help survivors find homes and food, search for loved ones, and battle humans, animals, and hordes of Freakers (i.e., mutated humans) in frenetic combat. Players use firearms (e.g., shotguns, machine guns, assault rifles) and melee weapons (e.g., axes, spiked bats, machetes) to kill several enemies; large blood-splatter effects occur when characters are attacked. Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: characters tortured with blowtorches; a mutant’s head exploding from a gunshot; characters getting their throats slit; a man getting his ear cut off; a bag full of severed ears.

The game contains some suggestive/sexual material: a woman dragged into an empty cabin by marauders (implication of attempted sexual assault with dialogue stating, “This one’s a biter!”); dialogue such as “Wow, she is a looker. I’d hit that” and “…only if you promise to ride me as much as you ride your bike.” The dialogue briefly references drugs (e.g., “…doc’s got me on some Oxy” and “…jacked up on some PCP…”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.

You can pre-order Days Gone, which is releasing on April 26, 2019, with this link on Amazon.
