Assassin’s Creed: Revelations rated Mature—what will it contain?

Posted on September 29, 2011 AT 05:38pm

THE BUZZ: The official ESRB rating has now come out for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, and the game has been rated M for Mature. Not at all a surprise, as previous versions of the game have been rated M as well.

So what will Revelations contain that makes it so inappropriate for children? Here’s the rundown:

This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Desmond, a man who must relive the life of his ancestor Ezio to assassinate various targets and save his fragmenting mind. Most missions require players to find, stalk, and kill enemies by using a variety of weapons (e.g., daggers, concealed blades, crossbows, gun-like artillery); players can also engage in brawls or sword fights with various soldiers. Blood-splatter effects often occur when characters are injured; blood stains sometimes appear on the streets and/or characters’ clothing. Some sequences depict close-ups of characters getting stabbed in the throat, and enemies are occasionally impaled amid slow-motion effects. During the course of the game, the dialogue contains some sexual references (e.g., “Now that was a sorry looking whore. Won’t be selling her goods for a while,” “Your wife really enjoyed having a real man last night, shorty!” and “You going to try to feel me up again?”). The game also contains the word “sh*t” and a*s,” in addition to Greek/Italian equivalents (e.g., “m*rda” [sh*t], “m*laka” [a*shole], “c*zzo” [d*ck]).
