Bungie’s Destiny Acquires a Teen Rating, Unlike Halo
According to a report from Polygon, upcoming MMO Shooter Destiny has received a “Teen” rating by ESRB with content included in the game described as “Animated Blood and Violence.”
This is a good change for gamers because almost every AAA title nowadays has been getting rating of “M for Mature,” which includes references to drugs, nudity and gambling.
With this rating Destiny will become accessible to larger audience and more players will be able to get their hands on it, without much of a problem.
Here’s what Bungie had to say about the rating it received:
For Destiny, we didn’t aggressively pursue one rating over another, though. We constructed foundational pillars that have guided development from start to finish. We wanted our worlds to be a place people felt good about spending time in. We wanted our worlds to be worthy of heroes.
For us that meant Destiny would never be reprehensible, but rather bright, hopeful, and adventurous. That’s a world that resonates with us, and we hope it resonates with gamers, too.
From the start Bungie has focused on a point that Destiny is not like any other MMO, instead it is a shared world shooter, where more and more people are encouraged to participate and save the humanity from the brink of extinction.
Destiny is scheduled to release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 on 9th of September, 2014.
