Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ESRB Rating Reveals Torture, Child Soldiers, and More
“No Russian” was an incredibly controversial scene within Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that saw players step into the shoes of an undercover CIA agent who participates in a mass shooting at a Moscow airport. Due to the nature of the content, the game gave players the option of skipping the mission and warned those who dared play out the fictional scene of the disturbing content. Now it seems that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will also feature some graphic and controversial scenes of its own.
The ESRB rating for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has arrived showing the usual fare for a Mature title from blood and gore to intense violence, strong language, suggestive use of themes, and the use of drugs. The rating also describes a series of graphic scenes such as threatening a family with a handgun, one featuring a hostage getting blown up while wearing an explosive vest, and a torture scene involving the player being waterboarded and interrogated.
Similar to the “No Russian” scene of Modern Warfare 2, the upcoming title will also see a particularly controversial mission featuring a child soldier. Players will be forced to kill enemies as a child and bear witness to a gas attack that kills off multiple civilians including other children. The developers have mentioned in the past that the title would be incredibly dark but the ESRB rating paints a picture far more grim than what fans may have been expecting.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to arrive on October 25th for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Let us know your thoughts on the ESRB rating and the graphic content that will be featured in the game in the comments section below.
