Far Cry New Dawn was given a rating of M for Mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors say the game contains “Blood, Intense Violence, Mild Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol”. The game also contains “in-game purchases” which could indicate it could have microtransactions or other paid DLC content.
The rating summary says: “This is an action/adventure first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a captain of a security detail sent to rescue settlers. Set in a post-nuclear Montana, the game allows players to explore open-world environments, engage in combat missions, rescue hostages, and liberate outposts from enemy bandits/marauders. Players use machine guns, rifles, flamethrowers, and explosives to kill enemies in frenetic combat; combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Stealth attacks (e.g., knife stabbing from behind) are also used to take out unsuspecting enemies discreetly. 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.”
Far Cry New Dawn is a spin-off to the main Far Cry series as it serves as a mini sequel to last year’s release of Far Cry 5. The game is again set in the state of Montana where you have to face up against unruly residents. The game will be released worldwide on February 15th, 2019 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
