  • Batman: Arkham Knight’s M Rating Explained

    The scenes that have earned Batman: Arkham Knight its Mature rating has finally been revealed. Last month it was revealed that Rocksteady’s final game in its Arkham trilogy, is the first game to get a rating other than a Teen rating by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board).

    The ESRB’s centers their explanation on a scene where someone is tortured on "a bloody operating table", they also mention that there are moments where you can shoot unarmed characters and a hostage, this raises a question if you play as a character other than the dark knight at some point, for batman is known for his refusal to kill, the statement follows -

    "This is an action-adventure game in which players primarily assume the role of Batman as he battles several villains spreading chaos across Gotham City. Players traverse a variety of locations around Gotham while battling thugs, examining crime scenes, and occasionally rescuing hostages. Players engage in melee-style combat using punches, kicks, and gadgets (e.g., batarangs, explosives). Enemies cry out in pain when struck, and some takedowns are highlighted by brief slow-motion effects and loud impact sounds.”

    “Some sequences allow players to use tank-like vehicles with machine gun turrets and rockets to shoot enemies; a vehicle's wheels are also used to torture an enemy in one sequence. Cutscenes depict characters getting shot (on and off camera) while restrained or unarmed. Large bloodstains/pools of blood appear in crime scenes and in the aftermath of violent acts; one room depicts a person torturing a character on a bloody operating table. During the course of the game, players can shoot unarmed characters and a hostage. Neon signs in a red-light district read “live nude girls” and “XXX.” The words “b*tch,” “gobsh*te,” and “a*s” appear in the dialogue."
