Posted Jan 05, 2018 by DarthHazard
The Far Cry 5 official ESRB rating has finally been revealed and it gives us a few more details about the things players will be able to get up to in Hope County.
The game has been rated M for Mature and will contain blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes, strong language and use of drugs and alcohol. And the rating summary provided alongside the rating has revealed that players will be able to consume drugs in order to boost their power and skills.
The full rating summary can be found below:
“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a sheriff's deputy as he battles religious zealots in Montana. Players explore the open-world environment and engage in combat missions to liberate enemy compounds/outposts, rescue hostages, and battle enemy militia. Players use machine guns, bows, flamethrowers, and explosives to kill enemies in frenetic combat; combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Stealth attacks (e.g., strangling, stabbing, snapping enemies' necks) are also used to take out unsuspecting guards discreetly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a man shooting himself in the head; a character repeatedly being electrocuted during an interrogation scene; a man cutting a large swath of skin off a character's chest. Mutilated corpses can be found in some areas of the environment. The game contains references to sex in the dialogue (e.g., “Now it's time for me to find some p*ssy to eat,” “But at night it was a goddamn red-light district just women selling their p*ssies everywhere,” and “Do not finger blast girls here.”). During the course of the game, players can consume alcohol, resulting in a screen-blurring effect. Several sequences reference drugs in dialogue (e.g., “She took to a needle for help,” “…like some bad pagan acid trip,” “…they all got hooked to what is now commonly referred to as opium!”). Players may also consume homoeopathic drugs (e.g., “Fast,” “Furious”) that boost players' abilities and skills; one drug (oregano) blurs the screen when consumed and is described as, "Surprisingly good in brownies." The words “f**k” and “c*nt” are heard in the game.”
Also revealed were some of the dialogue players would be able to hear whilst playing the game including "Do not finger blast girls here" and "But at night it was a goddamn red-light district just women selling their p*ssies everywhere". And continuing on the theme from previous Far Cry 5 titles, players will be able to use stealth attacks including "snapping enemies' necks" to ensure that they stay undetected whilst roaming around the map.
Far Cry 5 is set for release on 27 March 2018 and will see players fighting Joseph Seed and his cult in the fictional Hope County, Montana. Will you be looking forward to the game?
