Ghost Recon Breakpoint ESRB Rating, Game Description Revealed
The hype for Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint rose to an 11 after Jon Bernthal took the stage at E3 2019 to release new footage for the game. Since then, there hasn’t been a whole lot of news that has surfaced to give us a deeper look into the game prior to the title’s October release date. Thankfully we have just a bit more news, as the official ESRB rating and description for Ghost Recon Breakpoint has officially been released.
As expected, the official ESRB rating for the game landed in the “Mature” territory, with the rating summary more than justifying it with talk of war scenario violence, stealth kill executions, and a whole lot of rough language with some questionable phrasing (which will likely be cleared up with some context). Here’s the official summary per Wario64:
“This is a third-person shooter in which players lead a special ops unit to investigate a tech company in a military setting. Players explore an open-world environment, complete mission objectives (e.g., recon, extraction, assassinations), and engage in combat against enemy militia. Players use machine guns, rifles, rocket launchers, and explosives to kill soldiers and drone units in frenetic combat; players can also shoot and kill civilians, though this may result in a mission failure. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. By grappling unsuspecting enemies from behind, players can interrogate them for information, use them as human shields, and/or execute them with knife attacks. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a bound prisoner repeatedly beaten with a baton; a screaming man being tortured; a soldier repeatably stabbed in the neck. The game includes brief sexual references in the dialogue (e.g., “’Now I gotcha and I’m gonna scr*w you all night long'”; “They [drones] are more than just machines. They are the world’s greatest sex toy”; “But even world 2.0—it’s just mud, blood, and c*m.”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in the game.”
Ghost Recon Breakpoint launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 5th, 2019.
