Ghost Recon Breakpoint rated ‘M for Mature’ by ESRB


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is only a few months away from release now. As the developers tick all the boxes they need to so they can get the game on the market, they have just reached another milestone. The game now has an official ESRB rating and, in a result that will shock no-one, it has received an ‘M for Mature’ rating. It achieved this due to ‘blood, intense violence, mild sexual themes, and strong language’. With the exception of the ‘mild sexual themes’, this sounds like nearly every other Ghost Recon title.

You can check out the full summary below as well as the trailer for the game –

This is a third-person shooter in which players lead a special ops unit to investigate a tech company in a military setting. Players explore an open-world environment, complete mission objectives (e.g., recon, extraction, assassinations), and engage in combat against enemy militia. Players use machine guns, rifles, rocket launchers, and explosives to kill soldiers and drone units in frenetic combat; players can also shoot and kill civilians, though this may result in a mission failure. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. By grappling unsuspecting enemies from behind, players can interrogate them for information, use them as human shields, and/or execute them with knife attacks. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a bound prisoner repeatedly beaten with a baton; a screaming man being tortured; a soldier repeatably stabbed in the neck. The game includes brief sexual references in the dialogue (e.g., “’Now I gotcha and I’m gonna scr*w you all night long'”; “They [drones] are more than just machines. They are the world’s greatest sex toy”; “But even world 2.0—it’s just mud, blood, and c*m.”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in the game.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint launches on 4th October
