Wolfenstein: Youngblood is one of our most anticipated titles of the next couple of months (not that there’s a lot coming out). The way MachineGames has rejuvenated the franchise has been fantastic. Well, with the game just a few weeks away, the Entertainment Software Rating Board have had their say on the game. And it should come as a surprise to no-one that the game has been given an ‘M for Mature’ rating. This rating was given for blood and gore, intense violence, and strong language. You can check out the full summary below –
This is a first-person shooter in which players follow the story of the twin daughters of BJ Blazkowicz, the central character of previous Wolfenstein games. Players can engage in combat missions against Nazi enemies while following the storyline; characters use pistols, rifles, machine guns, and futuristic weapons to kill soldiers and mech characters. Some weapons allow players to blow off enemies’ limbs/heads, resulting in large blood-splatter effects and chunks of flesh. A few cutscenes depict further instances of intense violence: a soldier’s head exploding after being shot; a character crushed to death and partially decapitated after an explosion; a character stabbed in the eye. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
