Far Cry: New Dawn will be coming out soon and the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has given it an “M” for “Mature” rating, which warns users of the blood, intense violence, mild sexual themes, strong language, and the usage of alcohol. This is not something new for the franchise, as Far Cry does have bold themes and all these mentioned themes have been seen in previous games as well.
In-app purchases have also been mentioned, which could mean that the game will have microtransactions. Implementation of these microtransactions is going to be very important as fans are not interested in paying more money when they have already played for the game. The ESRB mentioned that the game refers to speed b*ners and that the users will see shotgun executions and pornographic VHS tapes.
The ESRB also provided a short summary of the game and part of it is as follows:
Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a man executed with a shotgun blast; a man shot point-blank in the chest. The game contains brief sexual references in the dialogue (e.g., “Party liquor, pornographic VHS tapes…cool guns”; “I wanna get a speed b*ner”; and “…[M]y heart is poundin’ and my d*ck is hard.”). During the course of the game, players’ character can consume alcohol, resulting in a screen-blurring effect and the character passing out. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in dialogue.
This does sound like a Far Cry game. This might not be a completely new game as the setting is pretty much the same as the previous one. Times have changed though and we will have a post-apocalyptic scenario to play through. Far Cry New Dawn is going to release on February 15 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Stay tuned for more information and news regarding the game.
