Elden Ring ESRB Rating Description Dives Into Gruesome Bosses, Items, and Enemies
ESRB has rated Elden Ring giving it a Mature rating and describing the boss, items, and enemies from the game.
According to ESRB, Elden Ring is rated M for Mature for Blood and Gore, Language, Suggestive Themes, and Violence. They have also detailed some of the mature content in the game.
This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a character trying to retrieve a magical ring and become the Elden Lord. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments, collect items, and battle various enemies (e.g., knights, fantastical creatures) in melee combat. Players use swords, spears, axes, arrows, and magic to enemies; combat is highlighted by cries of pain, splatters of blood, and impact sounds. The game includes depictions of gore: collectible items that include severed fingers and tongues; a boss character cutting off its arm; severed arms hanging from a ceiling. During the course of the game, a humanoid monster is depicted partially nude, with scales/scars covering its breast and pelvic regions. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
While most of the description is pretty normal and can be interchanged for any of the Souls games that have been published by From Software, the highlight here is the description of enemies, items, and one of the bosses in the game.
Elden Ring will be out on February 25, 2022, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
