The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has now rated Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 which is out next year.
The ESRB has rated Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 with an M rating (Mature) recommended for gamers over the age of 17 and up. The content descriptors say the game contains “Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language”.
The listing also says the game will have ‘in-game purchases’ which gives us an indication that there will be microtransactions and other paid DLC features. We should know more details about it next year once the game releases in 2019.
The rating summary says: “This is a tactical third-person shooter in which players assume the role of an elite government agent battling hostile factions in a fictionalized Washington D.C. Players use machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill waves of enemy soldiers/thugs in frenetic combat. Firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes depict instances of intense violence: characters shot in the head at close range; a restrained character struck repeatedly with a hammer (mostly off screen). A fictional drug called Spice is prevalent in the game, as well as other drug references: bags of Spice, drug labs, drug-making paraphernalia depicted; the words “Drug Kitchen” written on some walls. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue“.
The game is a sequel to the 2016 game called ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’. The sequel should also be an always online video game where you can join up with other players to complete quests and face bosses. The game should also have PvP combat too.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be released in North America on March 15th, 2019. The game will be available for you to purchase for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. There are no current plans to release the game on the Nintendo Switch.
