Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gets rated by PEGI: extreme violence and motiveless killing

PEGI (the European age rating system for videogames) has added their rating for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to their website. We already knew the game was going to receive an 18-plus rating, as it was printed all over the cases and bundles, but now we can read the board’s full description.

The content of this game is suitable for persons aged 18 years and over only.
It contains: Extreme violence – Multiple, motiveless killing – Violence towards defenceless people – Strong language
This game allows the player to interact with other players ONLINE

The ‘violence twowards defenceless people’ is something they said about Ground Zeroes as well, but the ‘motiveless killing’ seems to be only in The Phantom Pain.
