ESRB rating agency experts studied the outgoing in October action movie Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and assigned it a rating of “Mature 17+” based on what they saw. The agency’s website briefly describes the atrocities in which gamers will be able to participate and which can be observed in cutscenes.
Here are some excerpts from the agency’s resume:
- Characters use machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles and explosives to kill enemies in fierce battles. Fights are accompanied by realistic shots, screams of pain and large splashes of blood.
- In some situations, the player will have to quickly determine which characters are terrorists and which are innocent bystanders.
- The player will have to use a gun to threaten the family of the suspect during interrogation, to prevent terrorists from shooting hostages.
- Acts of violence will be present in cutscenes: a hostage killed by a vest with explosives, civilians killed as a result of a gas attack (including children).
The release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled for October 25, 2019. Sony refused to sell it in the Russian region, since it was initially assumed that the Russian military would be shown there on the negative side. But recently there was information that in the beta version of the game Russia was replaced by the fictional country of Castovia.
