The Order: 1886
PlayStation 4
Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier in the Victorian era London. As players progress through the storyline to unfold a mystery, they use pistols, rifles, grenades, and fantastical weapons (e.g., electric arc gun) to kill human enemies and Lycan (i.e., werewolf creatures). Players can also employ stealth attacks (e.g., slitting throats) to dispatch enemies. Firefights are accompanied by realistic gunfire, explosions, and splashes of red blood. Some explosives cause dismemberment; mutilated bodies, with exposed viscera, are also depicted. Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: a character stabbed repeatedly in the chest and throat; a character shot in the head at close range; a man chained to a tub and repeatedly dunked and punched by guards. During the course of the game, players can visit a brothel that depicts prostitutes with exposed breasts. One brothel sequence depicts a topless woman gyrating on top of a man—the sex act is partially obscured. There is also a fleeting depiction of male genitalia in the game. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.
