The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Prey, the new game Arkane Studios. Thanks to the ESRB description we have discovered some new details on the title, classified with the rating “M”, ie only suitable for mature audiences. Warning: as reported below, it may contain spoilers about the plot and gameplay sequences.


For those who are not familiar with ESRB, it is an entity that classifies games according to their content for the North American distribution (more or less the same role of PEGI in Europe).

This is the description of the game: “Prey is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of Morgan Yu, a man aboard a space station overrun by aliens. Players complete mission-based objectives and use futuristic weapons (e.g., disruptor pistols, laser canons) and special abilities (e.g., kinetic blast, psychoshock) to kill enemy creatures and human survivors.

Realistic gunfire, large explosions, and blood-splatter effects occur during combat. Some environments depict large blood stains and corpses amid pools of blood. A handful of sequences depict additional acts of violence: a character executed with a gunshot to the head; a man impaled by alien tentacles at close range.

During the course of the game, players’ character can consume alcohol, resulting in a drunkenness status (e.g., screen-blurring effect, stumbling). The word “sh*t” is heard in the dialogue.”

Recall that Prey will be released on May 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
