Following the announcement of the Death Stranding Director’s Cut two weeks ago, the game’s ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) rating has surfaced today! Those who played the game on the PS4 should know what to expect, but for the rest, head on for the Death Stranding Director’s Cut ESRB ratings summary.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut ESRB Rating Summary:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a courier (Sam Porter) transporting packages across a post-apocalyptic environment. As players traverse mountainous terrain, they can be attacked by human settlers and ghostly apparitions. Players use machine guns, grenades, and shotguns to kill enemies; firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, large splashes of blood, and cries of pain. In some stages, players can perform stealth takedowns of enemies (e.g., strangling characters from behind). Cutscenes contain more intense instances of violence: a man and an infant shot—the latter, accidentally (blood splatter appears below the infant); a character shooting a comatose patient in the head; a man stabbing himself repeatedly in the distance. A handful of scenes depict a character with his buttocks exposed. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Given how a recent trademark registration for a new PlayStation Experience has surfaced, could this be part of the show? This is assuming that Sony does intend to push out a show later this year.
