What’s the official rating for The Division 2? Does the description give any clues to the game itself?
The Division 2 arrives on console and PC on March 15th. But before that happens, the ESRB had to make its rating for the game. Not surprisingly, it (like its predecessor) got an “M” rating. Here is what they said about the game.
“This is a tactical third-person shooter in which players assume the role of an elite government agent battling hostile factions in a fictionalized Washington D.C. Players use machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill waves of enemy soldiers/thugs in frenetic combat. Firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes depict instances of intense violence: characters shot in the head at close range; a restrained character struck repeatedly with a hammer (mostly off screen). A fictional drug called Spice is prevalent in the game, as well as other drug references: bags of Spice, drug labs, drug-making paraphernalia depicted; the words ‘Drug Kitchen’ written on some walls. The words ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ and ‘a*shole’ appear in the dialogue.”
While not surprising per se, it’s going to be interesting to see if Ubisoft is able to fix many of the things that fans had issues with for the game.
