Recommended Videos

The ESRB has now rated XCOM 2 and its summary gives us a few more details on the full content of the game.

The official ESRB website has now rated XCOM 2 giving it a Teen rating. The content descriptors are: Blood, Use of Tobacco, Violence.

The rating summary is:This is a strategy game in which players attempt to save Earth from an alien invasion. From a ¾-top-down perspective, players manage resources, engage in combat missions, rescue characters, and terrorize alien installations. Players use rifles, machine guns, pistols, and grenades to kill enemies (e.g., human-, insect-, beast-like characters) in turn-based combat.

Attack moves occur in brief cutscenes that depict characters getting shot or wounded/killed by explosions. Splashes and pools of yellow and red blood sometimes appear when characters are injured or killed. During the course of the game, players can customize soldiers with accessories, including lit cigarettes and cigars.”

Apart from Snake in the Metal Gear series, there aren’t that many video game characters that are shown to be smoking. It’s interesting that this game allows you to customize soldiers to show them smoking.

Needless to say, XCOM 2 is definitely a game not appropriate for kids. The game is a PC exclusive and will be out from February 5th, 2016.
