Dying Light 2 is getting an announcement today. Leaks are already happening regarding the game before the announcement and we also have an ESRB rating now.
Dying Light 2 is rated Mature by ESRB, which is not a big surprise. What is interesting is the description of their rating implies that there will be some suggestive sexual content and dialogue, including one which could be a potential sex scene before the screen fades black.
We have already covered an earlier leak for the game which reveals the pre-order bonuses and points towards a release date, but now we might have an idea of some of the story content and dialogue that is referenced in the ESRB Rating.
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a survivor (Aiden Caldwell) in a post-apocalyptic city overrun by zombies. As players traverse the open-world environment, they interact with characters, complete mission objectives, and engage in melee-style combat against human survivors and zombies. Players use makeshift swords, machetes, and pipes to hack and slash at enemies; damage often results in dismemberment and decapitation. Large blood-splatter effects occur as enemies are hit; large blood stains remain in the environment. The game contains some suggestive material in the dialogue (e.g., “Into bondage, are you…Too bad. This issue’s centerfold is…painfully sexy”; “Strange because I thought I knew all the women here. And I mean inside out”; “…I get all the p*ssy”; “I was payin’ your t*ts a compliment.”). In one sequence, a female character is seen leading a man into her bedroom before the scene fades to black. The words “f**k” and “c*nt” are heard in the game.
The game will also offer in-game purchases but this doesn’t necessarily mean microtransactions and could be related to downloadable content.
The game has been rated for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
