The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its rating summary for Farpoint. The PlayStation 4 virtual reality game ended up with a Mature rating due to blood, gore, strong language and violence. You can find the full ESRB description of the sci-fi first-person shooter below:
This is a VR first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a crash survivor on an alien planet. Players use assault rifles, shotguns, and plasma rifles to shoot and kill hostile alien creatures and robotic enemies. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire and large explosions. Blood-splatter effects occur when enemies are shot; some attacks result in dismemberment and/or decapitation, leaving creatures’ body parts and bloodstains on the ground. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.
Farpoint was first announced during Sony’s press conference at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo. Players explore an alien world in order to search for survivors and look for a way back home. Multiple weapons are available, including plasma rifles and railguns, to take on the hostile aliens. In addition to a single-player campaign, there is also two-player online co-op.
You can preorder Farpoint, which is coming out on the 16th of May in the North American region, with this link on Amazon.
