The ESRB Rating For Left Alive Has Been Revealed

Square Enix will be releasing Left Alive later this year and the ESRB has already given its rating for it. There are some images that will not be suitable for all players.

It sounds like Left Alive will be a very violent video game since it has a rating of M for mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors say the game contains “Blood, Intense Violence, Strong Language as well as Use of Alcohol”.

The rating summary says: “This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the roles of three characters trying to escape a war zone. Players perform stealth tactics/moves against soldiers patrolling buildings and battlefields; players also engage in frenetic gun battles using a variety of weapons (e.g., machine guns, explosives, shovels).

Cutscenes sometimes depict soldiers executing restrained and/or unarmed civilians; a handful of scenes depict characters being shot in the head at close range. One dramatic sequence depicts a young girl cutting her own throat. Blood-splatter effects occur during gameplay, and bloodstains can be seen in several environments.

During the course of the game, players’ character can acquire and drink vodka, causing a temporary screen-blur/distortion effect. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.”

Left Alive will be released in North America on March 5th, 2019. The game will be available for you to purchase on PC and PS4. You can read more about the game in the overview posted below from Steam. Currently, there are no plans at the moment for the game to be ported to Nintendo Switch or Xbox One.
