Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed their rating summary for upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive title, The Last of Us: Remastered, and as expected its "M for Mature" rating for content related to blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes, strong language, use of alcohol.
You can read the full rating summary below, its almost identical to the one that was provided for The Last of Us: Remastered Playstation 3 port.
"This is an action game in which players assume the role of Joel and Ellie, human survivors battling their way through a post-apocalyptic world. From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a variety of weapons (e.g., pistols, rifles, explosives, spiked bats, steel pipes, and blades) and melee attacks to fight off infected mutants and other human survivors.:
"Players can also employ stealth kills (e.g., strangulations, pistol executions, stabbing attacks) and engage in extended combat sequences involving close-up camera angles and on-screen prompts. Screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and blood-splatter effects accompany the combat. Several attacks result in decapitations and dismemberment; body parts are depicted in some areas (e.g., chopping blocks)."
"Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: a young character dying in a man’s arms from gunshot wounds; adult characters being executed at point-blank range; an enemy getting interrogated and stabbed in the knee. During the course of the game, a character makes sexual remarks about an adult magazine (e.g., ‘Whoa. How the hell would he even walk around with that thing’ and ‘Oh why are these [pages] all stuck together’). One scene allows player to decide whether a young character drinks alcohol. The words ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ and ‘a*shole’ can be heard in the dialogue."
The Last of Us: Remastered is scheduled to launch on July 29. Yesterday, some in-game 1080p screenshots of The Last of Us: Remastered were leaked on internet via Korean website, you can view them HERE.
