The Division 2’s Rating Revealed: “Drug Kitchens,” Hammer Killings, and More
Though we still have a bit longer to wait before we can get our hands on Ubisoft’s The Division 2, the mature rating has been officially revealed and includes some interesting tid-bits about the coming game.
The official rating contains a lot of details we already know – or at least expected – but it does add more about the drug of choice in-game and some of the more specific violence sequences. According to Ubisoft:
“This is a tactical third-person shooter in which players assume the role of an elite government agent battling hostile factions in a fictionalized Washington D.C. Players use machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill waves of enemy soldiers/thugs in frenetic combat. Firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes depict instances of intense violence: characters shot in the head at close range; a restrained character struck repeatedly with a hammer (mostly off screen). A fictional drug called Spice is prevalent in the game, as well as other drug references: bags of Spice, drug labs, drug-making paraphernalia depicted; the words ‘Drug Kitchen’ written on some walls. The words ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ and ‘a*shole’ appear in the dialogue.”
For those that remember the first one, this sounds pretty on brand for the franchise though the dev team has mentioned prior that they’ve learned their lesson about story content and what fans want to see in the sequel.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on March 15, 2019. Are you excited to see what changes the sequel will bring?
