ESRB has revealed their rating summary for Konami's upcoming multiplatform game "Metal Gear Rising: Revengenace". As expected by everyone of us, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has received M for Mature rating due to content related to blood, gore, intense violence, and strong language.
You can check out the full rating summary below
This is an action game in which players assume the role of Raiden, a cybernetic soldier on a mission to stop a futuristic terrorist organization. Players use swords, guns, and rocket launchers to kill enemy cyborgs and giant robots in frenetic melee-style combat. Players can also employ stealth tactics (e.g., impaling/stabbing enemies close-up) to eliminate targets. Combat is fast-paced and frenetic, with realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain.
Exaggerated blood splashes occur frequently when enemies are injured, and slow-motion effects highlight various finishing moves (e.g., dismembering enemies). Some cut scenes also depict intense acts of violence: a character impaled in slow motion; a close-up angles of dismemberment; a character's heart ripped out. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in dialogue.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is schedule to launch on February 19 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
