The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for State of Decay 2. The PC and Xbox One 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 description of the second State of Decay game below:
This is a third-person action/simulation game in which players assume the role of survivors in a zombie apocalypse. Players explore small towns and rural settings, locate survivors, and battle hordes of swarming zombies. Players use baseball bats, meat cleavers, machetes, grenades, and machine guns to kill zombies in frenetic melee-style combat. Several weapons allow players to crush/maim zombies’ heads; grenade blasts also depict blood and dismemberment. If other human survivors become infected or ill, players can choose to “euthanize” them by shooting them in the head at close range, resulting in decapitation and large blood-splatter effects.
During the course of the game, players can build an infirmary in which they can craft painkillers and opiates; specific drugs referenced include Herbal Remedy, Painkillers, Opiates, Amphetamines, and Pentamezin (a fictional prescription drug). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
State of Decay 2 will be released in 2018. If you are interested, you can preorder the open-world survival horror game with this link on Amazon.
