The ESRB has rated Assassin’s Creed Origins earlier this week giving us more of an idea on what the full game is going to be included.
Assassin’s Creed Origins has been rated M for mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors are: “Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol“.
The rating summary: “This is an action-adventure game in which players follow the story of Egyptian assassins (Bayek and Aya of Siwa) tasked with taking down a secret order that threatens Cleopatra’s power. As players explore open-world Egyptian, Greek, and Roman environments they undertake missions to find, stalk, and kill human enemies. Players use swords, arrows, concealed blades, and spears to assassinate targets and kill enemies in frenetic melee-style combat. Some cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: a man beaten to death with an orb; a child getting stabbed. Assassinations and fights are highlighted by cries of pain and large blood-splatter effects.
One sequence depicts human body parts and blood in a cave; another scene briefly depicts a headless corpse impaled on a stake. The game includes a mission involving prostitutes and a brothel in which a couple can be partially observed having sex (i.e., moaning sounds). Female characters are sometimes depicted topless in the brothel; some rooms contain drawings of figures engaged in various sex acts. During the course of the game, a character briefly mentions an opium pipe. The player’s character is depicted drinking alcohol during a sequence of cutscenes; after a time, players must walk and engage in a fistfight while the screen and controls are impaired. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” appear in the dialogue.”
Assassin’s Creed Origins is released on October 27th, 2017 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
