This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a member of an international task force battling terrorists in the year 2045. Players explore open-world urban environments and use pistols, machine guns, blasters, and explosives to kill enemy characters. Combat is highlighted by frequent blood-splatter effects, realistic gunfire, and explosions. Cutscenes occasionally depict characters screaming while being vaporized/incinerated. The game contains some sexual material: signs for adult entertainment (e.g., “Lust,” “XXX Smut,” “The Hot Room: Everyone’s Naked, Your depravity is our desire”); references in the dialogue (e.g., “My purchases are all booze, lube, junk food and porn…”; “I’m not paying that much just to get an STD…”; “…[H]e was Niemand’s former ‘hump-buddy’”). Dialogue also references cocaine and the word “f**k.”
