Batman: Arkham Knight gets 'M' Rating

Batman: Arkham Knight gets 'M' Rating

Batman: Arkham Knight all set to arrive in June 2015.

The much anticipated ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’  has received an ‘M’ (Mature) rating from the ESRB for containing naughty things like swearing and violence. But the title, one the best-selling action franchises of all time, must have to be fairly severe to cross the Teen/Mature dividing line, right? The Eurogamer has revealed a few details from ESRB's summary.

Warning! There are spoilers ahead.The detailed summary can be seen below:

"This is an action-adventure game in which players primarily assume the role of Batman as he battles several villains spreading chaos across Gotham City. Players traverse a variety of locations around Gotham while battling thugs, examining crime scenes, and occasionally rescuing hostages. Players engage in melee-style combat using punches, kicks, and gadgets (e.g., batarangs, explosives). Enemies cry out in pain when struck, and some takedowns are highlighted by brief slow-motion effects and loud impact sounds. Some sequences allow players to use tank-like vehicles with machine gun turrets and rockets to shoot enemies; a vehicle's wheels are also used to torture an enemy in one sequence. Cutscenes depict characters getting shot (on and off camera) while restrained or unarmed. Large bloodstains/pools of blood appear in crime scenes and in the aftermath of violent acts; one room depicts a person torturing a character on a bloody operating table. During the course of the game, players can shoot unarmed characters and a hostage. Neon signs in a red-light district read "live nude girls" and "XXX." The words "b*tch," "gobsh*te," and "a*s" appear in the dialogue.”

"The most interesting part has to be the fact that "players can shoot unarmed characters and a hostage. Shooting people isn't really Batman's thing(Yes, The No Gun’s Rule), unless he's using rubber bullets in the Batmobile, perhaps we'll play as someone else during the campaign.”

Also, the word "gobshite". That has to be the Penguin.

Batman has a now a better reason for increasing his violence quotient. In Arkham Knight his worst enemies are working together to destroy him, as they publicly announce in the latest Arkham Knight trailer.
