If Until Dawn had you doubting it had its fair share of horror and gore, the ESRB has done its job to reassure you.
The PlayStation 4 horror exclusive has been reviewed by the Entertainment Softtware Rating Board to receive an “M” for Mature rating, along with shedding light on some new details regarding the title. The game, which was originally an exclusive for the PlayStation 3 Move, is coming August 25. Check out the latest gameplay trailer before it is released right here.
The post from the board reads as follows:
Content Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language
Other: Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (PlayStation 4)
Rating Summary: This is a survival-horror adventure game in which players help eight friends survive a serial killer at a mountain retreat. As players progress through the game, they explore the fully interactive environments, choosing a variety of action/decision-paths via on-screen prompts. Some choices can lead to depictions of intense violence and/or gore: characters shot in the head; characters cut in half by a saw blade; characters disemboweled or decapitated by a creature; a character forced to cut off segments of his fingers. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently as characters are killed or injured; some sequences depict blood stains in the environment and around corpses. The game includes some sexual material: dialogue that contains sexual remarks (e.g., “Let’s party like we’re f**king porn stars and make this one trip we will never forget” and ‘I mean if you’re not gonna bang her…maybe Mike’ll take up the case.”); a character looking at various sexual positions in a Kama Sutra book; a woman performing a striptease for a man, removing her clothes down to her undergarments. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “d*ck” are heard in dialogue.
