The release of Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is on the horizon, and now the Entertainment Software Rating Board has released its rating summary for the game. The game received a Mature rating as was to be expected, as that is what the original version received.
As for what the major culprits for the rating were, they were Blood and Gore, Language, Sexual Themes and Violence. The following is the complete ESRB description:
“This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a hero on a quest to stop an evil called the Void. From a 3/4 overhead perspective, players explore the fantasy world of Rivellon, interact with various characters, and engage in turn-based combat against human enemies and fantastical creatures (e.g., demons, skeletons, giant insects). Characters use weapon strikes and magic attacks to defeat enemies in combat; battles are accompanied by blood-splatter effects that stain the surrounding environment. Some areas depict large pools of blood amid human corpses and dismembered limbs.
The game contains some sexual material: the central character can employ the services of a prostitute at a pub—no sexual activity is depicted, though the dialogue/text makes sexual references (e.g., “Your hand slides all the way up until you reach her, and you make a soft circling motion with your thumb”; “Slowly she undresses you then takes you to bed”; “Your world explodes in bliss.”). The word “sh*t” is heard in dialogue.”
Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 31st.
