Grand Theft Auto V Allows Players to Smoke Weed

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V will let you smoke weed and once again visit prostitutes, according to the game’s ESRB rating. The U.S. ratings board has gathered together a detailed list of the game’s violent sections and unlawful acts, be careful though as there are some minor spoilers.

“Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players’ progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment,” the rating reads.

“In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).”

“Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor,” the listing continues. “Myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker’s body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted).

“Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted. Players’ character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence. The words f**k, c**t, and n***er can be heard in the dialogue.”

Grand Theft Auto V is set to release September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
