Destiny 2 Gets An Official ESRB Rating

Destiny

We're just a few weeks away from returning to the land of Bungie's Destiny, with the company's recent open beta wrapping up, and the release date fast approaching. That said, what's the game rated?

This week, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board revealed that the sequel has the same rating as the original Destiny, clocking in with a T for Teen rating. The game has been tagged as such for Blood, Language and Violence, but it doesn't go too far over the top that teens can't enjoy the game.

Here's the official breakdown of the rating, and what entails from it:

"This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a group (Guardians) defending humanity against an alien force. Players travel across futuristic landscapes and planets to battle a horde of alien creatures. Players use pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, and various elemental weapons (e.g., flame sword, lightning staff) to kill enemies. Battles are frenetic and are accompanied by realistic gunfire and large explosions.

Cutscenes sometimes depict dramatic spaceship battles and characters getting shot, electrocuted, and strangled. Splashes of red blood occasionally appear on the screen when players are injured, and some creatures emit splashes of black liquid when killed. The word 'a*shole' is heard in the dialogue."

So nothing that wasn't really expected from a release like Destiny, which isn't a big surprise. But it's got the same level of content that we've come to expect from the original.

Destiny 2 releases on September 6th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and October 24th for PC.
