Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ESRB Rating and Summary Swing Out

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 limited edition ps5

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ESRB rating and summary are out, giving it a “T for Teen” rating. According to the ESRB website, Spider-Man 2’s Teen rating is due to the presence of “Blood, Drug Reference, Mild Language, Violence” in the title.

Notable mention of the “mild language” includes the uses of words like “prick” and “ass,” and the use of guns resulting in small splashes of blood, coupled with cutscenes with more violence reflect ESRB’s rating. Check out the full ESRB rating summary below:

This is an action game in which players assume the roles of Peter Parker and Miles Morales/Spider-Men as they attempt to save New York City from a new threat. From a third-person perspective, players fight crime, swing around buildings, and engage in melee-style combat with enemies. Characters mostly punch, kick, and throw each other during fights; central characters can use special symbiote-based and electricity-based attacks on enemies. Some enemies use pistols and/or machine guns during combat; gunshots sometimes result in small splashes of blood. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence/blood: a character choked to death; a dead body turned over; blood drops on a leaf. In some crime missions, characters can be seen trading unnamed drugs for weapons; drug packages can be seen in a car trunk. The words “pr*ck” and “a*s” appear in the game.

This is unsurprising as the predecessor to Spider-Man 2 also received a Teen rating with similar references to blood, drug reference, language, and violence.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 swings out on October 20 exclusively for the PS5.
