Metal Gear Survive still has a lot to do to get fans on-side but at least the series hasn’t watered itself down to become a family-friendly franchise. We know this because the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) has just released its rating for the new game and it comfortably falls into the Mature rating category. Here’s the full summary of the game –
This is an action game in which players help a soldier find a way home after being transported through an alternate dimension. Players undertake missions to explore a hostile world, looking for resources to craft weapons/equipment and rescue other survivors. Along the way, players use pistols, machine guns, automated turrets, traps, and explosives to battle crystalline alien creatures and infected soldiers in frenetic firefights. Realistic gunfire, large explosives, and screams of pain are heard during combat. Large blood-splatter effects are depicted when characters are injured/killed; some environments depict large pools of blood underneath corpses. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
Metal Gear Survive will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 20th February in North America and in Europe on 22nd February.
