XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus Rated By ESRB For PS Vita

The Entertainment Software Rating Board ESRB has rated Take Two Interactive’s turn-based tactical role-playing game XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus for the PS Vita.

X-COM: Enemy Unknown Plus

Platform: PS Vita

Rating Category: Mature 17+

Content Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Violence

Rating Summary: This is a strategy game in which players must save present-day Earth from an alien invasion. As players manage resources, research weapon technology, and monitor alien presence, they can dispatch squads of soldiers to attack human- and insect-like creatures in turn-based combat. From a 3/4-top-down perspective, players use assault rifles, grenades, and other military-grade weapons to kill nearby enemies. Battles are accompanied by intermittent cutscenes that depict close-up (e.g., over-the-shoulder) instances of violence: soldiers getting impaled or beaten to death by alien creatures; realistic explosions that result in larger blood sprays. If an alien “implants” an egg into a dead human, the character will eventually explode amid additional gibbing effects. Some scenes depict dead or dying soldiers whose bodies are burned or mutilated. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.

Already in July an entry on the Korean video game ratings board appeared suggesting that XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus is heading to the PS Vita.

No official announcement has been made yet so we have to wait for further news from Take Two Interactive to confirm the release on the PS Vita.
