The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its description for Fallout 76. The online role-playing game ended up with a Mature rating due to contents categorized as Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence in addition to Strong Language. You can find the full ESRB summary below:
This is an open-world role-playing game in which players must survive/thrive in a post-apocalyptic world. From a first- or third-person perspective, players search for supplies/food while battling other survivors and mutant creatures. Players use machetes, machine guns, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill ghoul-like creatures and other enemies in frenetic combat. Some weapons allow players to blow ghouls apart, resulting in flying limbs and chunks of flesh; wounded characters can also be executed with gunshots to the head, resulting in decapitation.
The game includes frequent references to drugs called Chems, which are sometimes used as plot points for characters; Chems can be found, manufactured, and used to enhance performance/skills of characters, though there is no actual depiction of use. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Fallout 76 will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 14th in the North American region. If you are interested, you can preorder the latest Fallout videogame with this link from the online retailer.
