Game news God of War Ragnarok will not be in everyone’s hands… Sensitive souls, abstain!

The release of God of War: Ragnarök is approaching and many Kratos fans are impatient before they can finally get their hands on this new episode. If more and more details are starting to flow, the last one evokes a certain ESRB classification for a title that will not be within reach of all controllers.

The release is approaching for Kratos and Atreus

Awaited by all the biggest fans, God of War: Ragnarök will be released on November 9, exclusively on PlayStation 5 but also on PlayStation 4.

In this home stretch, the adventures of Kratos and Atreus continue to unfold little by little through several trailers and other images. Then, after revealing a weight of 90.6 GB (double the previous opus released in 2018) on PS4, it’s the turn of Tom Henderson, a renowned insider, to discuss the lifespan of the title. And it is on its new site, Insider Gaming, that a leak speaks with an estimated lifespan of around 40 hours of play, of which 20 hours would be dedicated to the main story alone. It is therefore logical to deduce that the remaining 20 hours would be reserved for exploration and side quests. While waiting for an official return from Sony on this issue today, it’s the ESRB that has just revealed additional, somewhat gloomy details through its rating system.

With blades and axes

There is no doubt that God of War: Ragnarök will offer many fights at the controls of Kratos, the hero of this saga whose reputation is second to none. All fans know it… With his large muscular morphology, Kratos is a real bloodthirsty, ruthless brute, always ready to unleash his Blades of Chaos on any enemy who dares stand in his way. Violent fights which will be illustrated in this new episode by bloodshed and other dismembermentsbut also by devastating final attacks such as impale or decapitation.
This is precisely what is announced in the summary of the classification resulting from the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board), an organization responsible for evaluating video games in North America, the equivalent of PEGI in Europe.

It is an action-adventure game in which players help Kratos and his son on a dangerous quest. Players explore various kingdoms and engage in frantic hand-to-hand combat against human-looking raiders and fantastical creatures (centaurs, trolls, dragons, etc.). Players use axes and chained blades to battle their enemies, often resulting in blood spatter and dismemberment effects. Players can perform finishing attacks that represent close impales using bladed weapons and hand weapons; repeated blows of an ax to a creature’s neck result in its decapitation. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the game – ESRB

Similarly, this content, considered violent, had also been highlighted by the Korean evaluation system last May, as well as the excessive vulgarity in the dialogues. With this aspect also highlighted in the ESRB rating, the game then receives a “Mature” rating for content intended for people over 17 years of age.

Let us recall in passing that God of War: Ragnarök is due out November 9, exclusively on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
