Hitman Elusive Target

Hitman beta is this weekend and a final release is on March 11, so it is time we take a look at the game’s ESRB rating. Players should know that the game is only for Mature audience and features some intense violence, drug use, blood, strong language and more.

Here’s the full description of Hitman ESRB rating:

This is a stealth action game in which players control Agent 47, an assassin tasked with eliminating targets throughout various missions. From a third-person perspective, players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and various tools (e.g., poisons, cleavers, explosives) to assassinate human characters.

Players can also use stealth attacks (e.g., strangling characters with wires) to eliminate targets and guards at close range.

Players have the ability to kill non-adversary characters (e.g., striking them with an ax, shooting them in plain sight), though this may negatively affect players’ progress and points. Large blood-splatter effects often occur, and pools of blood appear under victims’ bodies.

During the course of the game, some female characters are seen unconscious and dragged by players’ character; their underwear and portions of their buttocks are sometimes depicted.

The dialogue also contains suggestive material (e.g., “Go get yourself laid or something,” “I’m a wh*re,” and “…move your pelvis back and forth and in and out.”). There are also brief references to drugs in dialogue (e.g., “He’s probably coked out of his mind” and “You don’t have any coke, do you?”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*ck” are heard in dialogue.

Hitman will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as an episodic game.
