Metal Gear Survive rated by the ESRB

The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) has published their rating for Metal Gear Survive on their official website. The game has been rated M for Mature for featuring blood, language and violence. The description also refers to the zombie-like enemies as ‘crystalline alien creatures’, and mention that you will fight infected soldiers as well.


This is an action game in which players help a soldier find a way home after being transported through an alternate dimension. Players undertake missions to explore a hostile world, looking for resources to craft weapons/equipment and rescue other survivors. Along the way, players use pistols, machine guns, automated turrets, traps, and explosives to battle crystalline alien creatures and infected soldiers in frenetic firefights. Realistic gunfire, large explosives, and screams of pain are heard during combat. Large blood-splatter effects are depicted when characters are injured/killed; some environments depict large pools of blood underneath corpses. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.

Metal Gear Survive will release at the end of next month on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    That description reads way too generic.

      It’s an ESRB description, they always read as generic.

      For example:
      “This is an action game in which players assume the role of an elite soldier engaged in military missions to stop an evil villain. As players infiltrate enemy bases and strongholds, they use pistols, machine guns, and rocket launchers to kill enemy soldiers. Players can also employ stealth attacks and takedowns (e.g., choking, knife stabbing from behind) to incapacitate enemies. Firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, slow-motion effects, and large blood-splatter effects. Players have the ability to kill non-adversary characters, though this may negatively affect players’ progress; child soldiers appear in some sequences, though fatal shots to these enemies result in mission failure. Cutscenes include intense acts of violence and/or instances of gore: patients gunned down in a hospital; a character’s exposed intestines; torture/interrogation scenes (e.g., a man’s leg bent backwards; a character stabbed in the teeth with a knife; a character electrocuted with rods). There is one scene depicting a woman being strangled and drowned by a soldier. The sound of pants being unbuckled and pulled down can be heard after the strangulation. During the course of the game some female characters wear revealing outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; camera angles sometimes focus and linger on a character’s buttocks and cleavage. One sequence depicts a female character showering (with a bikini top and bottom) inside a cage as male characters watch. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.”

      Guess what this game is?
