The ESRB has now rated the PS4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human and the listing gives us more interesting details on some of the things you can see and do in the game. It goes without saying that this is a mature rated video game and should not be played by underage kids.
Detroit: Become Human has been rated M for mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors say: “Blood, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs”. The rating summary below has some spoilers, although nothing too big has been revealed.
The rating summary says: “This is an action game in which players follow the stories of various androids as they interact with humans in a futuristic Detroit. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments, examine crime scenes, and perform tasks while navigating conversations and events with other characters. Some sequences depict characters punching, stabbing, or shooting one another (occasionally seen in slow-motion); characters (including police officers) may also be executed in a handful of scenes. One dramatic sequence involves a man striking a child across the face; players later hear audio of the man beating the child with a belt (the beating is not visually depicted).
Homicide scenes sometimes depict human corpses with bloodstained wounds or clothing. The game includes some sexual material and nudity: a sex club containing pole-dancing androids in revealing outfits; a crime scene describing human-android sex (no sexual activity is depicted); an article titled “Android Sex Officially Better!”; posters depicting women in provocative poses barely covering their genitals. During the course of the game, there are several references to a drug called “Red Ice,” a fictional version of methamphetamines; one character can be seen smoking the drug from a pipe. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.”
Detroit: Become Human is the newest game from Quantic Dream. They are the same developers that made the likes of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. The game is a PS4 exclusive and will be released on worldwide on May 25th, 2018.
