Armored Core 6 ESRB Rating and Summary Surfaces, Mentions Fictional Drug “Coral”

Armored core 6 down

Way ahead of its release date, Armored Core 6 ESRB rating and summary are out. The ESRB has graded Armored Core 6 a “T for Teen” rating with the presence of “Drug Reference, Language, Violence” in the title.

Drug Reference refers to the fictional drug, the “Coral” present in the game, while the notable mentions of the mild language include words like “shit.” Of course, the Armored Core franchise is packed with fast-paced realistic gunfire and explosions, which explains the violence present in the ESRB rating. Find the full ESRB rating summary below:

This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a mercenary carrying out military-style missions. Players pilot mechanized battle suits (i.e., mechs), using machine guns, rocket launchers, missiles, and melee-style attacks to destroy enemies (e.g., other mechs, tanks, helicopters). Battles are often fast-paced, accompanied by realistic gunfire and large explosions—damaged battle suits often burst into fiery wreckage/scattered debris. The game contains references to a fictional drug in the dialogue/text (e.g., “The Dosers are locked in a power struggle over the Coral drug trade”; “No one’s getting high off that”; “You gotta take Rubicon’s blessings raw…Hits your brain with a pop and a sizzle.”). The word “sh*t” appears in the game.

Armored Core games have historically been graded a “T for Teen” by the ESRB, so this rating does not come off as a surprise. Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon launches August 25, 2023 for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC.
