Rating Summary
This is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) role-playing game in which players assume the role of agents who battle evil forces around the globe. As players interact with numerous characters in real-world locales, they engage in frenetic melee-style combat with zombies, demons, wolves, and humans. Swords, guns, and magic attacks can be used to kill nearby adversaries; realistic gunfire and explosions can be heard during battle. Damage sometimes results in large blood-splatter effects, and some environments depict larger blood stains/smears on the ground. In one “meat store” scene, corpses can be seen hanging from meat hooks or lying on the ground. During the course of the game, one female succubus enemy is depicted topless; her breasts bounce up and down during combat. In one extended cutscene, a woman seductively caresses players' character before moving her head off-screen—oral sex is implied, though never shown. Some scenes reference drug use (e.g., “[Rome wasn't built] by deadbeat procrastinators lazying around on their asses smoking weed either,” “Have you ever seen a psychiatrist or taken psychedelic drugs?”); in one sequence, a man is depicted smoking a marijuana joint. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
