The ESRB has now rated the upcoming action role-playing video game out later this year called Vampyr. The ERSB listing gives us a few more details on what is to be included in the full release of the game.
The current rating for Vampyr is that it’s recommended for players over the age of 17. It received an M for Mature players rating. The content descriptors say: “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs“.
The rating summary says the following about the game: “This is a third-person action game in which players assume the role of a surgeon (Jonathan Reid) roaming through London as a vampire. Players learn vampire skills/abilities; track citizens as potential prey; and battle other vampires, ghouls, and vampire hunters in frenetic combat. Characters mostly use swords or guns to attack enemies; Jonathan can also rip out the throats of human enemies by stalking and biting them. Some sequences depict executions of characters on and off-screen—a man’s decapitated head appears on the ground in one off-screen killing. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and some environments depict mutilated corpses covered in blood. The game includes some sexual material: references to a priest molesting a child; a prostitute soliciting a character on the street (e.g., “Pay me a glass and I’ll be gentle…Pay me a bottle, and I’ll be nasty…I promise I’m cheap and clean.”). During the course of the game, a character is depicted slapping his arm for a vein, then injecting himself with a drug off-screen (“that is better…I will make it through one more night.”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.”
Vampyr will be released worldwide on June 5th, 2018. The game will be available for you to buy on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. No Nintendo Switch version has been planned.
