Just Cause 3 Rated ‘Mature’ Although There’s No Sexual Content in Sight

It was expected, but in case you were wondering, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has rated Just Cause 3 Mature.

Mature rating is generally suited for users that are above the age of 17 years because such titles usually include gore and sexual content. However, the description provided by ESRB for Just Cause 3 does not hint at any sexual content.

That would not appear as news to the returning fans because it was almost the same with Just Cause 2 as well as the original game.

However, with the general trend edging towards adding sexual content to more and more games, someone might have expected it. That being said, here’s what ESRB had to say about the game:

From a third-person perspective, players traverse an open-world environment, engage in missions, and battle the dictator’s soldiers for control. Players use pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, and explosives to attack and kill enemy forces. Action can be frenetic at times, highlighted by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and cries of pain. Successful hits are accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Some sequences allow players to kill captives and civilians; one sequence allows players to detonate a bomb on a pedestrian.

All that is bread and butter in videogames these days and the only reference to strong content in the game came when the ratings board mentioned that “the word f**k appears in the dialogue.”

Just Cause 3 releases on December 1, 2015.
