Killzone: Shadow Fall
PlayStation 4
Blood, Intense Violence, Strong Language
Other: Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB (PlayStation 4)
This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a futuristic soldier trying to keep peace between two warring nations. Players use pistols, machine guns, explosives, and melee attacks to kill human soldiers in frenetic combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects occur during combat. The game sometimes depicts close-up attacks against enemies (e.g., slashing/stabbing the neck). Players have the ability to kill non-adversary characters (e.g., civilians) in the environment, though these acts are not encouraged/rewarded. Cutscenes sometimes depict intense acts of violence: execution, self-inflicted gunshots, electrocution of a bound character. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
