Blood and Gore
- No Interactive Elements
In this role-playing game, based on the Game of Thrones franchise, players assume the role of two separate characters whose paths eventually converge in a medieval fantasy world. Players use swords, axes, crossbows, and special attacks (e.g., flaming weapons) to kill barbarian creatures (i.e., “wildlings”) and human enemies in melee-style combat. Battles are highlighted by sword-slashing sounds and screams of pain; large blood-splatter effects occur when enemies are injured. Some finishing moves depict close-range stabbings and executions. Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: characters getting decapitated, slit in the throat, or struck in the face with an axe. In one protracted sequence, players' character gets beaten/burned repeatedly during an interrogation. During the course of the game, the dialogue references sexual material (e.g., “. . . your wife whores around just for fun,” “The girl is saying that you raped her,” “[Y]ou naughty little slut!”). Players can also enter brothels that depict women in revealing outfits; in one scene, a man caresses a woman's chest as she sits on his lap (no nudity is depicted). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” can be heard in dialogue.
