Mafia_3_Cistern-Shootout

The ESRB has revealed its rating summary for the upcoming Mafia 3. The upcoming open-world game ended up with a Mature rating due to blood, gore, intense violence, nudity, strong language, strong sexual content and use of drugs.

The combat in the latest Mafia game is highlighted with realistic gunfire large blood splatters as well as some intense melee maneuvers. You can check out the first part of the description below:

This is an open-world action game in which players assume the role of a Vietnam veteran (Lincoln Clay) seeking revenge against an organized crime syndicate. As players explore 1968-era New Orleans, they complete missions that often involve taking over criminal rackets and assassinating targets.

From a third-person perspective, players use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, explosives, and knives to kill enemy rivals and thugs; players can directly kill civilians and police though this may negatively affect their progress. Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire and large blood-splatter effects. Players can also use stealth attacks to strangle and/or stab enemies from behind. In some sequences, players engage in intense hand-to-hand combat, performing various takedowns and executions: stomping enemies’ heads; snapping their necks; shooting enemies in the mouth or head at close range. One sequence depicts characters cutting the limbs off corpses inside a warehouse.

Mafia 3 also features plenty of nudity and strong sexual content:

The game contains depictions of nudity and sexual material: topless women dancing and caressing each other during a pornography shoot; a sex-party setting in which a woman performs oral sex on a man (no genitalia depicted); a male couple having sex in a bathhouse (no genitalia or penetration depicted); unlockable Playboy magazine centerfolds/covers depicting exposed buttocks and breasts.

Last but not least, references to drugs as well as several swear words are also present:

The game also includes references to drugs and drug use: a man snorting lines of drugs; missions that involve spiking liquids with LSD; depictions of a heroin-processing operation. The words “f**k,” “c*nt,” “sh*t,” and “c*cksucker” are heard. Players will also frequently experience racial epithets (e.g., “n*gger,” “g*ok”) and dialogue.

Mafia 3 will be releasing on the 7th of October in the North American region. If you are interested, you can preorder the latest Mafia videogame for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with this link on Amazon.
