Assassin’s Creed Origins is over a month away from launch and now Assassin’s Creed Origins ESRB rating has been revealed. The game has been given a mature rating for blood, gore, drug reference, intense violence, nudity, sexual content, strong language and use of alcohol.
All of the previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise have been given the Mature rating, however, Assassin’s Creed Origins ESRB rating description suggests that it may be a little more adult compared to the previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
The game includes a mission involving prostitutes and a brothel in which a couple can be partially observed having sex (i.e., moaning sounds). Female characters are sometimes depicted topless in the brothel; some rooms contain drawings of figures engaged in various sex acts.
During the course of the game, a character briefly mentions an opium pipe. The player’s character is depicted drinking alcohol during a sequence of cutscenes; after a time, players must walk and engage in a fistfight while the screen and controls are impaired. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” appear in the dialogue.
In related news, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assasin’s Creed origins will run 4k/30 FPS using dynamic scaling on Xbox One X, however, a report has made its way on the internet that suggests the game will feature a 1080/60 FPS mode for Xbox One X in addition to the 4k/30 FPS. This option will be appreciated by those who prefer a smoother game experience.
Also, Ubisoft has assured that the PC version of Assasin’s Creed Origins will not suffer like the past entries in the franchise. According to game director Ashraf Ismail, the studio is putting a lot of work in the PC version of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is an upcoming action RPG in development at Ubisoft and is scheduled to launch on October 27, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
