In news that won’t shock anyone who is familiar with the Far Cry franchise, Far Cry New Dawn has been rated ‘M for Mature’ by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board). The new game/standalone expansion hybrid garnered this rating for blood, intense violence, mild sexual themes, strong language, and use of alcohol. Of course, this is standard fare for any Far Cry title as they have all been given mature ratings. In fact, the only thing missing from other titles is the warning for drug references.

This is an action/adventure first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a captain of a security detail sent to rescue settlers. Set in a post-nuclear Montana, the game allows players to explore open-world environments, engage in combat missions, rescue hostages, and liberate outposts from enemy bandits/marauders. Players use machine guns, rifles, flamethrowers, and explosives to kill enemies in frenetic combat; combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Stealth attacks (e.g., knife stabbing from behind) are also used to take out unsuspecting enemies discreetly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a man executed with a shotgun blast; a man shot point-blank in the chest. The game contains brief sexual references in the dialogue (e.g., “Party liquor, pornographic VHS tapes…cool guns”; “I wanna get a speed b*ner”; and “…[M]y heart is poundin’ and my d*ck is hard.”). During the course of the game, players’ character can consume alcohol, resulting in a screen-blurring effect and the character passing out. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in dialogue.
