Assassin’s Creed Unity’s ESRB rating and descriptors have now been revealed. It looks like the game could be the bloodiest Assassin’s Creed game ever made.

The content descriptors for Assassin’s Creed Unity suggests the game as a lot of violence and blood. There will also be some sexual themes added in as well as a lot of swear words. It’s safe to say the game may not be appropriate for children to play.

Assassin’s Creed Unity has been rated “M” for Mature players aged 17 and over. The content descriptors are: “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol”.

The full ESRB summary reveals more specific details about Assassin’s Creed Unity. There will be prostitutes in the game and a lot of decapitations from the sounds of things.

Check out the ESRB summary below:

“This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Arno Dorian, a man who joins the Assassins Brotherhood in 18th century France. As players follow the storyline, they undertake missions to find, stalk, and kill human enemies. Players use swords, muskets, concealed spikes, and poisonous blades to assassinate characters. Players can also engage in swordfights with armed soldiers, often resulting in characters getting impaled. Cutscenes sometimes depict civilians getting stabbed, burned at the stake, and decapitated by guillotine. Severed heads are occasionally depicted on spikes or held up in the air. The game includes some sexual material: missions referencing brothels, prostitutes; dialogue also includes sexual remarks (e.g., “Add some bestiality and a lecherous priest and I’d say you have the beginnings of a beautiful novel”; “Seven nuns seducing a parish priest into debauchery, or an enormously-endowed Benedictine sodomizing a goat named Pius?”). During the course of the game, players are sent on flashback quest to retrieve wine; while playing these memories, the camera wobbles to simulate drunkenness. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.”
