Intense violence, sexual themes and more detailed for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. The open-world third-person tactical shooter ended up with a mature rating due to blood, gore, intense violence, partial nudity, sexual themes, strong language and use of drugs. You can find the full ESRB description below:

This is an open-world tactical shooter in which players assume the role of a member of an elite special ops military unit. Players are tasked with completing missions and military objectives (e.g., reconnaissance, extraction, assassinations) in order to take down a Bolivian drug cartel. From a third-person perspective, players mostly use stealth attacks and firearms (e.g., machine guns, sniper rifles, pistols) to infiltrate compounds and kill guards, drug lords, and enforcers. Some areas allow players to briefly interrogate enemies while holding them at gunpoint; other areas briefly depict enemies beating and interrogating bound prisoners. A few scenes depict mutilated bodies among large pools of blood; a handful of cutscenes show enemies holding severed heads dripping with blood.

The game includes some sexual material: a woman slapping a man in bed while straddling his waist (both figures are clothed); brief photographic images of a woman’s breasts. The game includes several drug references in the storyline, and the use of drugs: a man being forced to sniff several lines of cocaine; various images of marijuana and cocaine. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is coming out on the 7th of March in North America. You can preorder the latest installment of the series, if you are interested, with this link from Amazon.
